    Just added another arcade machine to my game room @ home. Marvel Super Heroes for a mere $200...proof that deals can be found on Craig's List!

    So here are some updated pics of my game room. All I can say is I have the best wife in the world for letting me have this (not to mention my Transformers room upstairs).

    Congrats, I have the Saturn version and love it. $200 is a steal, I was pricing a lot of capcom boards and most go for close to that.

    I got my MKII machine from Craig's List for $370 delivered.

    Nice. That's a cool Arthur Adam's poster. It's good to see he's still working. He's one of my favorites.

    As far as the Marvel Superheroes game, I'm just hoping it gets released on XBox Live Arcade sometime soon. Actually Marvel vs. Capcom 2. I wont be holding my breath though.

    Congrats. That's a great price too.

    Hope I can find some machines for those kind of prices when I am ready to buy.

    Buying in person is the only way to buy. I suggest Craig's List, searching by ZIP code on eBay and classified ads in your local papers. Patience too, lots of it. With some luck good machines can be had for $200-300.

    Dude, that setup is awesome. What consoles do you have?

    [​IMG]

    I also have a floor-to-ceiling, 10-shelf rack with my consoles on it. I don't have much room to keep anything connected.

    The 360 playing is done in here. The Wii & PS3 are in the family room to share.

    I bow down! Nice set up...looks like you've got a nice Sega CD & Saturn collection.

    I sold off a few of my consoles in order to buy the 360 Elite last year as well as a few more a few months back to cover an unexpected air conditioning replacement. What I'm left with is: NES clone, SNES 2, Wii, Genesis 3, Saturn, PS2, 360 Elite, GBC, GBA (both models), DS, Wonderswan & Wonderswan Color.

    I love import gaming so I focus on that a lot, esp. for the Saturn. Years past I had some nice import consoles - my favorite being the PC-Engine Duo-R. I've owned several TurboGrafx-16 consoles, various PC Engines, Neo Geo CD, JVC X-Eye and more. There came a time I collected more than I played, so I'm trying to enjoy what I have versus building a collection.

    The set ups I have seen on the boards are just amazing. So with my wifes new camera I finaly took pics of my set up.

    Here it is from behind the love seat with the lights on

    Here is from behind the screen

    The screen is 10ft accross and is a 4X 3 Aspect. So it covers the stairs and makes movie night very fun. The projector puts out up to 1080p on the screen.

    The lightning is actually rope lights across the celling.

    This is the second one I constructed. THe first one was fullsize but it was too big, so I got the saw out and made a mini. IT's about 4 feet tall.
