Retro Console Compatibility
Now we can regress to the consoles of yesteryear and as of this month, Bespoke Arcades have your dreams covered. Have a favourite console controller that you wish to use? Want 100% authenticity? If so, then take a look at our retroport add on.
With this world exclusive hop up, we add a bank of Atari 2600, Amiga, NES, Master System, Megadrive, SNES controller ports. We also offer additional Dreamcast and Gamecube ports for the enthusiast who truly wants everything (photos coming soon).
So if you have a hankering for the consoles of yesteryear then look no further than Bespoke Arcades. We research tirelessly and innovate in order to provide you with arcade machines which are truly unparalleled in terms of quality (both in and out), functionality and timeless design.
Once you get your Media or Elite arcade machine home, you can add your emulators (legalities aside) and directly integrate them into your menu system. We recommend the following emulators for use with our systems:
MAME – Arcade Games:
MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) is universally known as being the number one program to emulate your favourite coin-op classics. Virtually all games from 2000 and earlier have been replicated.
Stella – Atari 2600:
The console of choice for all dad’s out there. Stella emulates the wooden box perfectly. Relive your earlier gaming days with the console which made Atari synonymous with games.
Daphne – Laserdisc:
All laserdiscs work perfectly with this emulator. Relive the WOW factor with this classic (albeit shortlived) format.
MagicEngine – PC Engine / Turbografx:
Feel like a weird game of Chan vs Chan (AKA JJ and Jeff), or how about Sexy Parodius. The PC Engine ha some of the eeriest games in any console’s collection. But there are some serious classics like BC Kid and an arcade perfect R-Type. This truly is a connoisseur’s console.
Zsnes – Super Nintendo:
ZSNES is a SNES emulator that has been worked on since 1997. Originally programmed by zsKnight and _Demo_, the project has since then attracted a number of new developers and contributors.
Gens+ – Megadrive / Master System:
Both of these consoles are catered for by this rocksteady emulator. Gens has a high compatibility rate and good speed. It also has many nice features including a multi language menu, netplay with Kaillera, great SEGA-CD support and now 32x emulation too!
VirtuaNes – Nes:
VirtuaNES is a relatively new NES emulator from Japanese origin. Fortunately there is an English version of it though. Being newer than other NES emulators doesn’t mean it’s bad, on the contrary in fact. It supports full CPU and sound emulation.
Please note: No emulators come with your arcade machine so don’t ask us for ROMs. Bespoke Arcades do not condone emulator usage. It is possible to download and install any program onto our arcade machines.
****Please ensure you adhere to all the legalities relating to downloads and specifically to emulator use.****
