    If it uses the same software to run games as the PB4, then some of these duplicate titles will run with glitches/slowdown/etc.

    I have a KoA and my main issue is that it doesn't seem to be hackable at all, at least not easily. That means that you can't do anything about the fact that all of the games are resized to fit the same screen, which causes tearing. Worse in some games than others. I didn't recall seeing much slowdown on any games.

    Other issues: the JAMMA edge is not standard size, it's actually a bit smaller, meaning you need to line up the pins just right. Also, the grounds at the end of the connector are pinned to controls, so you need to cut a few traces and ground a couple pins for controls to work at all.

    I got mine new for $50 shipped, so I'm not complaining, but it's not as good as a dedicated PC or RPi.
