Wooden arcade machine makes you go weak in the knees

We love geeky arcade machines, and I bet, so do you. The nostalgic feeling of playing those retro games in a cool little arcade machine. Thanks to 8Bitdo, the masters of making gaming controllers, you have another reason to give up playing games on your smartphone. They have created a stunning looking wooden arcade machine, and currently it is on display at the Gamescom convention in Cologne, Germany. Hands down, this has to be one of the best (if not the best) looking arcade machine I have seen so far.

It has old-school styled joystick, arcade buttons and emulator that lets you play all the major arcade gaming titles that rocked the 90s and 2000s era. The arcade machine probably runs on MAME emulator, but that is not a surety since 8bitdo hasn’t provided any information on hardware or software configuration.

Just look at that curvy body

All they have provided are some stunning pictures of the Desktop Arcade Joy Stick. Let’s hope 8bitdo are going to make more of these, and it is not just one prototype. Frankly, this arcade machine is going to sell like hotcakes because the world loves arcade gaming.
