Every once and a while, Joel, Rob and I fever dream about building ourselves MAME cabinets. It’s never going to happen, for a variety of reasons: lethargy, lack of space, and the unspoken knowledge that that the 20 years of home consoles have inured into us a certain fondness for supine lounging while blasting our aliens or hopping upon evil anthropomorphic mushrooms. We simply do not have the souls of the MAME cabinet builder.
But this guy from the UK Over-Clock forums is totally Thetan Clear on the E-Meter of cabinet makers. His Project: C-MACC resulted in a cabinet capable of playing practically every console and arcade game ever. That which he could not emulate in MAME or MESS he installed manually, including an Xbox 360, a PlayStation 3, a Wii, a PSP and a Nintendo DS. End cost: roughly $4,500.
It’s hideous, but even so: we are impressed. Chest thumping respect, sir.
