Been holding off on buying Sony's latest gaming console, or just looking for a solid, network-capable Blu-ray player? Say hello to the PS3 Slim ($300; September 2009). As the name suggests, the revised console takes up 32 percent less space and uses 34 percent less power than its comparatively gargantuan predecessor, while still offering HDMI and optical digital audio output, built-in Wi-Fi, dual USB ports, a 120GB hard drive, and, of course, that aforementioned Blu-ray drive.
Beer and gaming go together like Mario and Luigi, and the Arkeg ($4,000) offers up plenty of both. This arcade game-styled machine features a fully functioning kegerator in its belly, with room for a 5 gallon keg kept cool by a solid-state thermoelectric cooling system. In addition, it sports a gaming-ready PC, pre-loaded with 69 games such as Asteroids, Mortal Kombat II, and 1942. Other features include a 24-inch LCD with protective overlay, an authentic backlit marquee, a 2.1 sound system with powered sub, two complete arcade controllers and a trackball mounted in a custom aluminum panel, a side-mounted tap with interchangeable handle, and more.
Found at theme parks, state fairs, and arcades, this authentic Water Blast Arcade Game ($11,000) is guaranteed to liven up the atmosphere in your party room or office. It features rapid water-shooting guns, flashing lights, lighted marquee, and arcade sounds, all to be enjoyed while aiming your stream at the bulls-eye while watching your accuracy meter — shown in lights — rise to the top. No quarters (or tokens) required.
