Here at Bespoke Arcades, we produce three luxury arcade machines for sale. These are the Apex, Synergy and Evo gaming cabinets. Here’s a general overview:


A top quality compact stand-up arcade machine, the Apex was launched in the UK in 2007 to great critical acclaim. As with all of our gaming cabinets, it is updated every year to keep up with current specifications. To date it has received many major accolades. It was voted No 1 in a Gadget Show group test and received the T3 award for the category: “Best Buy Arcade Machine”. The Apex comes with a large 20″ multi-view HD TFT screen. The gaming cabinet and control panel have been especially designed at an angle and position which ensures maximum comfort and playability. With its sleek looks, the Apex is recognised as being by far the best compact stand-up arcade machine for sale on the planet by retro arcade machine enthusiasts. With its elegant and slim-line design (it measures a mere 56cm in width and 65cm in depth), the Apex is unobtrusive and fits elegantly into any desired space.


We initially started by designing and producing the Synergy arcade machine – the original multigame cocktail arcade cabinet. This elegant retro arcade machine has a timeless “tabletop” design which has remained popular since it was launched in 2005. Now totally updated for 2011, the Synergy fits seamlessly into any environment with its exquisite design. Like the Apex, the Synergy comes with a large 20″ multi-view HD TFT screen. It is the only arcade table to feature both vertical and horizontal 2 player controls. It plays as good as it looks and is very easy to use. Ergonomically designed and hand built in the UK, the Synergy is probably the best known of all the arcade machines which we produce.


Our newest product is the incredible Evo arcade machine. Launched in 2010, it is now widely considered to be the best home arcade machine in the world. Ushering in a whole new era of retro arcade gaming, this incredible arcade machine is the pinnacle of technology and style. The Evo has many unique functions. These include the ability to connect your PS3 (or XBOX 360) to it. This enables you to play all the next generation titles in their true form on one superb arcade machine. Like all of our arcade machines, it is extremely easy and intuitive to use. With a huge 28” widescreen HD (over 1080p) TFT monitor, and using nothing but top-branded components; it is the real pinnacle in home arcade machines.

* * * * Different Editions Explained * * * *

All of our arcade machines are built in the UK and are available in 3 different versions: Play, Media and Elite. They all come with access to over 800 classic arcade games as standard. Although they all look, feel and play exactly the same, some do far more than others.

The Play Range: The most affordable series. These editions are for the person who simply wants to play the supplied games. It’s the perfect solution for the gamer who doesn’t require any multimedia or future game additions (No PS3 unless asked).

The Media Range: Windows 7 runs in the background making it effortless to add more games via the click of a mouse. This system has full media capabilities via the joystick, infinite expansion via 802.11n, Wi-Fi, 4 USB ports and an easy access DVD writer.

The Elite Range: Quite simply – the best! These editions utilise super-fast memory, Quad Core i5 processors with an nVidia GTX graphics card and Bose speakers. These arcade machines represent the cutting edge in modern arcade gaming. They run Windows 7 (64 bit) and also feature a “Plug-n-Play” secondary HDMI output and a Blu-Ray drive as standard. Play the latest PC games with the greatest hardware on your HDTV using the arcade controls or an Xbox 360 pad if necessary.
