    Skycurser Pricing Revealed!

    https://www.griffinaerotech.com/skycurser/#products
    $699 for the board.
    I'm surprised it's so inexpensive, honestly. I figured $1400ish, a grand minimum.

    $699/$1199/$3499

    A bit spendy for my tastes, but I'm definitely curious to see how the game plays. Anyone tried it?

    Mine is preordered, that's half of what I thought it was going to cost.

    Serious question: Why is the board alone so expensive? I could buy 3 games on my want list for $700.

    Thats the price of what a Neo MVS kit cost when it came out. Think about R and D. That's out of pocket. Cave kits cost 2k when new. So this is a deal.

    This is one of the cheapest arcade games to ever be released. You can't expect a brand new arcade game to be the same price as the used stuff most of us buy years after the fact.

    True - I was just thinking of the hardware cost, not the R&D. I'd imagine this is pretty low spec compared to modern arcade games, right? I'd be surprised if this is anything more than a low-powered off-the-shelf-ish machine - something along the lines an i3 Alienware Alpha.

    Don't forget this is the motherboard and game too. Subsequent games will be able to be purchased and use this same motherboard so price gets even better when you consider that. Games are housed on thumb drives so changing games out is simple plug n play which is nice.

    Oh noice. I thought the DOJ style enclosure was a full game. Do games run from a USB stick?

    I think it loads the game from the USB stick into ram. The dongle is also the security measure of the system.

    Price is really generous, but what's the $500 difference between the 'Pro' & 'Deluxe' kits?

    Art package I'm pretty sure. You get a full wrap for side art. Sides, front kick plate area, control panel overlay and marquee. The alternative is buying the dedicated cab for a lot more so if you pickup a dynamo hs-25 for cheap it's a pretty viable option for an arcade to have a dedicated cab for much less.

    If you haven't played it they'll be at MGC this weekend. It's a really great game and the guys developing it are very receptive to feedback/suggestions. I'm excited about the other Airframe games coming out, too. The relative cost is going to be worth it once there are 4-5 games for this thing, and I believe they've got enough momentum going to get at least that many in the next couple years.

    You're certainly right, printing is a luxury in these digital days. Thanks.
