Katana Game Console

If you've Wii’ed out or your PS3 has lost its luster, you might want to consider trying on something old school.

Bringing back classic arcade games in classic arcade game format (namely the hooded MDF cabinet complete with joystick), the Katana from DreamAuthentics lets you game like your grandmother did. (Well, OK, not really, but you know what I mean.)

The Katana is a full arcade sized unit, minus the bulky stand that contains the coin-counting equipment (you weren’t thinking of charging anyone, were you?). It’s completely customizable and each unit is made to order. Gamers get their choice of cabinets, graphics, joysticks, and, of course, get to pick from over 200 licensed games. The unit also doubles as a jukebox. Just load up your favorite MP3s and the Katana’s commercial jukebox-style software will have you boogieing in no time. The brains of the unit is essentially a gaming PC, which will allow you to perform other functions, such as surfing the net, playing any off-the-shelf PC game, watch a DVD, or (once you’ve had enough of a break), hook up your PS3.

Guess this means that I’ll have to brush up on my Donkey Kong and Pac Man skills. Maybe I’ll dust off my Pac Man Fever LP... um... actually... nix that part on second thought.
