As CRT Supplies Vanish the Classic Arcade Machine is Virtually Dead

Post by class316 » March 5th, 2017, 1:30 pm

The classic arcade cabinet will soon be all but extinct. The niche market of manufacturing CRT televisions has officially hit a wall and the experience of playing a classic arcade game as it was originally intended will be a very rare thing in the near future.

According to a report from Venturebeat, the stock of new 29-inch CRT screens has almost been depleted. Dream Arcades, the largest producer of non-coin-operated arcade machines in the world, says that the last company that was producing the displays sold its manufacturing equipment to an unnamed Chinese company that was unable to replicate the required winding procedures. Dream Arcades currently has less than 30 of the monitors left in stock and once that’s gone, they’ll no longer be able to perfectly replicate the experience of arcade games like Donkey Kong or Pac-Man as they were originally intended.
