All Play/Media/Elite arcades can easily be made to run these:

Arcade Systems:


The Multi Arcade Machine Emulator (MAME) was an emulator with its sole purpose of faithfully recreating arcade boards on today’s modern computers. MAME was first released in 1997 and is now compatible with over 7000 arcade titles.

MAME is the bedrock of home multigame arcade systems, as it utilizes actual copies of the arcade board’s data, the emulator is 100% accurate. All titles right up to 2001 can be run flawessly on the emulator and is still constantly updated, tweaked and refined.

MAME also has the inner funtionality of containing metadata which categorises each game by manufacturer, year, genre, even a brief synopsis of that the game is about. Your arcade machine could be an enylopedia of every videogame known to man

For more modern arcade emulation we have to look towards software which emulates specific manufacturers’ hardware which all Media and Elite systems are right at home with. So if it’s the newer games you crave then read on and prepare to get excited!

Capcom CPS 2/3

CPS stand for Capcom Power System and was their own Supergun system and also featured protection to prevent bootlegs. It transpired that in some territories bootleg versions of Streetfighter II were more prevalent that the official boards. This was later solved with the CPS II system which employed encryption and required 2 boards to run.

Neo Geo

The Neo-Geo Arcade Entertainment System hit gamers’ eyes in 1990 and provided true arcade gaming in your own home for the first time. All the arcade games were faitfully reproduced on the home console. However the games’ high price points ultimately failed to compete with the Super Nintendo and Sega Megadrive and was only a choice for the rich.

The Touhou project is a series of 2D shoot-em-ups made by Team Shanghai Alice. The anime games focus on over-the -top waving through waves of incoming bullets in the land of Gensokyo. One thing that sets these games apart from the rest is not only the maniacal gameplay but also the use of well developed storylines. The games’ universe is further expanded thanks to fan-made media, musical scrore CDs and video.

American Laser Games

American Laser Games was founded in 1980 and was the result of technology originally developed to assist police training. These games capture the zeitgeist of the era with low fidelity video, hammy overacting and a certain charm that you simply cant replicate. If you’re armed with one of our lightguns- they’re well worth a shot ot two.Daphne- Things are a little different when dealing with Laserdisc games, however this emulator runs Laserdiscs perfectly.


Laserdisc games consisted mostly of live film footage with an arcade game overlay. Always a firm favourite in arcades due to the interactive movie experience.

A result of poor timing and bad decisions, Atari presented its Jaguar to the public in 1993. Although there was a few good games (Aliens Vs Predator, Tempest 2000), the console endured a 3 year lifespan retailing under 250,000 units, where the Saturn and Playstation would eventually kill it off. Despite this, the Jaguar has garnered devoted fans who still make homebrew games for it today.

Sega Naomi

First demonstrated in 1998, the Naomi system is an extension of their Dreamcast console. And also like the Sega ST-V the games run on ROM boards instead of the Dreamcast proprietary GD-Rom format. This was a successful format with many third party licensees taking the system on board. Classic titles such as Marvel Vs Capcom 2 and Guilty Gear XX used the Naomi system. A later version (dubbed the Hikaru) succeeded this format (the same spec albeit with better video capabilities). This was short-lived due to expense and was shelved to allow for Naomi 2

Designed specifically for our new Evo arcade cabinet, clients can now choose to have the option to connect up their own PS3 or Xbox 360 console to their dedicated arcade machine in a matter of minutes.

How else could our customers play the current crop of fighting and sports games on the arcade market aside from buying every dedicated arcade machine?! All you have to do is plug in your PS3 or Xbox into the side and you are in next-gen nirvana. All controls / video / sound and all the functionality of the console is at your arcade machines disposal.

We offer our clients a choice of either xbox 360 or PS3 compatibility as standard for our Evo and Nu-Gen models. For those who can’t decide between PS3 and Xbox 360; we can even do both for a supplemental charge.

If you want the ability to play today’s arcade titles at home without having to resort to buying a dedicated arcade machine for each game – then please don’t hesitate to give us a shout. We even helped Warner Bros demo Mortal Kombat IX.

Light Guns, Trackballs & Spinners

Integrate your favourite controls

We also supply additional arcade peripherals such as light guns, trackballs and spinners to make your experience even more authentic. We try to ensure that we can allow you to play all retro arcade games exactly as you remember!

Perhaps have examples of games for each peripheral, ie op wolf, missile command, HOTD…



Without a doubt, all Apex and Evo owners should own one (or indeed a pair) of our USB plug-and-play light guns. Simply plug one or two into the supplied USB ports and you can play your favourite shooter games as you would on the original shooting arcade machines. Operation Wolf and Operation Thunderbolt come supplied with your arcade, so as soon as you get your arcade through the front door you’re ready for some gun-toting gaming goodness! Our light guns are unsurpassed in terms of accuracy and ease of use. All guns can be calibrated for each user within 5 seconds from the gun itself, without having to touch a keyboard or mouse.


Arcade Gaming Trackball

Are you mental for Marble Madness, Millipede or Missile Command? Are you gaga for Golden Tee 1, 2 and 3? Then why not use our optional plug-and-play arcade trackball or opt for a trackball flush-mounted on your new Evo arcade machine.

Arcade Trackball:
Now you can choose to have a full trackball installed into your arcade machine control panel as on the higher-spec Evo series or have a custom made USB trackball in your choice of finish that you can plug in via the USB ports on your Media series cabinet or above – please contact us for more details.

Retro Console Ports

Retro Ports

100% Authenticity

To further enhance your retro gaming experience, we also offer the ability to utilise your favourite controller of yesteryear. Run up into the attic and dig out your old controllers or let us know and we’ll source you a fully serviced selection of pads. Here’s an example of some of the controllers.


NES controllerAlmost where it all began, offering a new universal way to play games- the patented cross shaped pad was used for all future joypads. Feel free to plug in this familiar four buttoned brick and experience gaming how it used to be.


Super Famicom ControllerAn updated joypad as gaming evolves, and again sets new standards which all future controllers derived elements from. More buttons, more ergonomic- there’s only one Super Nintendo controller.


n64 joypadThis is perhaps one of the more individual controllers which are commonly requested. The joypad was designed around Super Mario 64 (which contributes to why it is rated as the finest video game ever made). The controller was also designed to be held in different ways which controversially prevents the player from accessing all the buttons from one position. A must- have if 4 player Goldeneye is your thing!


GameCube ControllerThe GameCube controller isn’t as “out there” as its predecessor but in nonetheless builds upon it. Featuring a more traditional layout, the 6th generation of Nintendo’s line of consoles provides an individual yet solid joypad to play some quality titles. GameCube controllers have always been popular thanks to its compatibility with Nintendo’s Wii console and now the Wii U so you can get some multiplayer Mario Kart action going. It’s on like Donkey Kong!


SEGA genesis controllerThe Megadrive control pad essentially comes in 2 variants- one with 3 action buttons and a later one with 6 buttons to cater for the then-new Street Fighter 2. This controller is also recognised as being the first joypad to be ergonomically make to fit round the player’s hands, doing away with the flat edges of the previous controllers’ aesthetics, thus resulting in a more comfortable gaming experience.

Atari 2600

Atari 2600 JoystickThe original 2600 controller featured a 4 way joystick and single fire button. This is definitely a joystick of choice for those who were the at the dawn of videogaming.


sony psx control padBased on Nintendo’s SNES controller, Sony’s first ever pad adds 2 other shoulder buttons in order to navigate 3D environments more easily. Always a great all-rounder pad to play all your videogaming classics again


quickshot joystickWe always get asked whether we can provide a computer joystick from times gone by and of course we can. If a Quikshot joystick was your weapon of choice or even a Konix Speed King (why, oh why…) we can get them running.
