No worries about this one ending up like the rickety table at the neighborhood bar. This Electropolished Steel Foosball Table ($4,000) is crafted in Spain from the aforementioned electropolished steel and hardy iroko wood. It features metal players and built-in levelers for keeping things perfect even when that surface isn't, all of which combines to make it rugged enough for outdoor use — even if you're unlikely to ever take it outside.
It takes most people years to acquire a reasonable amount of add-on junk for the console of their choice — but if you lack the time and have the money the Pinel & Pinel Arcade PS Trunk ($90,000) can have you gaming like an old pro on day one. This insane set includes a PS3, two Formula 1 racing seats with Thrustmaster steering wheels, a selection of 24 PS 3 games, an 1,800-watt sound system, a Playstation Move camera, four Move controllers, two Move shooter guns, four PS3 wireless buzzers, four Dualshock 3 controllers, two arcade fighting sticks, a 55" Sony TV, and four pairs of 3D glasses, all of which is housed in a custom trunk that's covered in calfskin and measures just 51" x 55" x 36" when closed.
Add a touch of class to your weekly poker game with these Pedale Playing Cards ($15). Each card in the 52+ deck has been individually designed by Pedale Design, with gorgeous, detailed illustrations replacing the pedestrian art we've become used to on our face cards. Even the box is custom-designed, and thanks to printing by the US Playing Card Company, you can be sure that they'll last — at least until your hot-tempered buddy gets hit with a bad break. [via]
It's hard to convince your poker buddies to raise the weekly stakes if you're playing with chips that cost less than the beer they bring with them. This Dunhill Poker Set ($700) can take care of that situation, and then some. It includes three hundred aluminum chips in various colors, five poker dice, and two packs of silver-edged Alfred Dunhill playing cards, all housed in a carbon fiber box with a sliding lid. Next thing you know, you'll have to establish a dress code. [Scouted by Erik]
The NeoGeo was legendarily powerful — and equally expensive. Now you can get the console you always wanted but couldn't afford on your middle school lunch money budget in a portable version with the NeoGeo X ($200). Built by Blaze and officially licensed by SNK, it offers a 4.3-inch display, four face buttons, an analog stick, and 20 built-in games, including Fatal Fury, Metal Slug, and The King of Monsters. If you decide you'd rather do your gaming on the big screen, you can use the optional dock and joystick for a more traditional experience. [via | via]
