San Francisco arcade selling their arcade cabinets


TILT is one of the last good things about the San Francisco Metreon. Sure, their movie theater is nice, but a good arcade will always trump any theater. TILT has some redemption machines, but the majority of the place is covered with arcade cabinets. They have a good selection of fighting, racing and shooting games and most of them are games that you will actually drop quarters into. Most of the arcade cabinets are also on sale.

Don't worry, TILT isn't going out of business. They're just selling the cabinets to try to make some extra profits during the holiday season. Nearly all the cabinets are on sale until the end of January and once the sale is over, you can still purchase the cabinets but the prices will go up.

The cheapest machines I saw there were two of the Resident Evil light-gun games going for $195 each. Yes, just $195. The screens weren't the greatest quality, but the games were still playable. The most expensive machine at TILT is the Tekken 6 cabinet for $20,000. The average machines ran between $1,500 to $3,000 though and only a few of the machines actually go over $10,000.

The machines I know most people will give a damn about are the fighting ones such as Marvel Vs Capcom 2, Street Fighter III Third Strike and SNK vs Capcom 2. Each of those are on sale for about $2,500 -- Not bad considering how rare and popular those games are.

The gallery below has about half of what TILT actually offers. If you're a San Francisco native, and if you have a few grand to blow, then I highly suggest you go see what TILT has on sale.
