Over the past 30 years, video games have come to us as large joystick laden cabinets at the local arcade, or as small set top boxes in our living rooms. These machines are basically simple computers dedicated to playing these games which are just software and code like any other application on a computer. Today's computers are more powerful than all those older game systems of the 80s and 90s, and the game code has been copied off of those systems as simple files called "Roms" on your computers. The computing code to play these games has also been recreated as what is called an "Emulator". The Barcade units include a computer with all the emulators installed and ready to play. These emulators are open source and can be freely distributed as part of our package.
The game files, or Roms, are still considered to be intellectual property of the software creators, and can therefore not be included with the arcade. However, an offsite link to these files will be made available upon purchase and can be downloaded directly to a usb drive and plugged into the included computer. The games will be in the format needed for the computer so just plug and play!
