If you want a human-sized replica of your favorite arcade, you can expect to spend at least $ 300. But what if you just want to play a bunch of retro games? At $ 60, the AtGames Legends Core Does the job. The puck plugs into your TV and gives you 100 games. But you will need to provide a controller.
AtGames has already made a name for itself in the home arcade industry. It features full-size arcades like the Legends Game Ultimate and stripped-down controller decks like the Legends Game Mini. You get some fantastic arcade controls and lots of games, but you’ll still be spending between $ 130 and $ 600.
The Legends Mini Core gives you everything you need to play arcade and console games on your TV. It uses the same HDMI compatible washer as the Legends Mini’s but omits the arcade controller. Instead, you’ll provide your own Bluetooth or USB compatible PC game controller. The washer has an HDMI port, a USB port, microUSB for power and Ethernet in case you prefer a wired connection.
You might already have one (like an Xbox Bluetooth controller), and even if you don’t, you can get one for less than $ 70 difference between the Mini Core and the Core. The list of games is not that great either. Although you find some that you may jump, like Shoot out and Soccer kid, there are lots of good games like Fix-it Felix, Jr., Tetris, Space Invaders, Aladdin (Sega Genesis), and Gargoyles.
And you can add games to Legends Core through AtGames’ Bring Your Own Game (BYOG) system. You can stream them locally from a PC or subscribe to the company’s cloud streaming service.
AtGames even offers two bundles for the new Legends Core. You can buy one get half, for a total of $ 90. Or buy one and get a discounted three-month subscription to the AtGames Cloud BYOG service for $ 90.
The Legends Core is available today via the AtGames website.
