Everyone who dreamed of owning their favorite arcade machine as a child can finally live out their fantasies without buying expensive, heavy equipment or an entire arcade. Arcade1Up machines (opens in new tab) bring arcade entertainment to your home at an affordable price — a price that's even lower now that select models are on sale at Walmart. Starting at just $164.99 with the Asteroids arcade machine (opens in new tab), you can save up to $135 off the regular $300 cost of these nostalgia-inducing games. These discounts are some of the best we've ever seen reach these machines. Shipping is free, or you can choose free in-store pickup where available.

For $10 more, you can pick up the Centipede arcade machine (opens in new tab). You're scoring a fantastic deal no matter which model you choose, though these are the only two that are on sale below $200 currently.

Give into the nostalgia! Standing at just four feet tall, these machines feature authentic controls, a 17-inch LCD screen, and built-in speakers, along with four different games to play.

These arcade cabinets feature a 17-inch LCD screen, licensed artwork, and controls for multiplayer. These aren't exactly full-sized arcade cabinets, coming in at 45.8 x 23 x 19 inches and weighing 63 pounds. While much larger than novelty cabinets we've seen before, you'll probably still want to play these in a sitting position unless you add a riser underneath. Luckily, Arcade1Up has a riser that's built exactly for that purpose, which you can pick up with today's order for $40 (opens in new tab). It makes playing much more comfortable if you're an adult.

The Asteroids cabinet features four games to play, including Asteroids, Tempest, Major Havoc, and Lunar Lander. Meanwhile, the Centipede cabinet features Centipede, Crystal Castles, Missile Command, and Atari Millipede.

There are more Arcade1Up cabinets to add to your collection, including Street Fighter 2 (opens in new tab), Rampage (opens in new tab), Galaga (opens in new tab), Pacman (opens in new tab), Mortal Kombat (opens in new tab), and Space Invaders (opens in new tab), and that's not all. There's also the Arcade1Up Deluxe Edition (opens in new tab) that includes 12 games on one cabinet and comes with a riser so you won't have to purchase one separately.
