Even with the success of the Galloping Ghost Arcade in Brookfield, Illinois, it’s obvious that the American arcade scene is not in good shape. Enter All You Can Arcade, a California-based company that wants to become the GameFly of the arcade world.
For $75 a month, subscribers to the service can rent a full-sized arcade cabinet for an entire month. And if you want to build a (temporary) game room in your home, the company also offers two-game ($150 per month) and three-game ($225 per month) plans. Thankfully, the cost of delivery (and the pickup at the end of the month) is included in the subscription price. Because of the size and bulk of your average arcade cabinet, All You Can Arcade currently only serves the the San Francisco and Sacramento areas, but they hope to expand nationwide through their Partner program. Partners would register their location and the names of the cabinets they’re willing to rent out and All You Can Arcade would serve as the middleman to connect them with potential subscribers.
