If you are a fan of retro or want to meet someone who is, now Amazon has on offer an arcade machine that will surely be the perfect Christmas gift for someone very close to you.
Every year it is clear that we are living in a real revival of the 80s, with several releases of retro consoles reissued, games and even aesthetics of this decade. In this context, you surely know someone who would like to know what Amazon has to offer right now.
This is a very considerable reduction in the price of Pac-Man’s Arcade 1UP, which goes from 449 euros to only 358 euros, a real bargain, especially if we take into account that arcade machines are usually far from cheap.
If you want to compare prices of this and other products in different stores, we recommend you take a look at the Idealo comparator.
It only has two games: Pac-Man and Pac-Man Plus, although they are two of the most fun games, both individually and collectively.
Given the price, it is without a doubt an ideal candidate for a Christmas gift, both for those who have lived through the recreational season as well as for those who like vintage, which are not few right now.
However, there are several things to bear in mind. The first of these is that the machine comes dismantled, although the manufacturer has an explanatory video in which you can see the assembly process, which is not at all complicated.
On the other hand, the height is 116 cm, and that means that you would need to place it on some support or table to be able to have the screen at eye level without having to sit down.
These are not insurmountable problems, especially considering that the price reduction is very considerable and that it is a safe bet if you want to surprise some well-known fan of the time, although it is also valid as a self-gift, of course.
It goes without saying that, as with all orders of £29 or more from Amazon, shipping is free anywhere in Spain, so you won’t have to pay any postage and you’ll have it at home in a few days.
