This week's lineup of arcade games is huuuge, and by huge I mean the title of one game and the number of games included in the other. Retro gamers should have a blast this week.

CAPCOM Arcade Cabinet

Price: 400 MSP
Capcom's pedigree arcade games are back! Take on players from around the world in "score attack" and even play together with online co-op! (Only for titles that support this feature.) Check out these classic games, now loaded with a "casual mode" geared towards newcomers and other new features. Try out "Black Dragon", "1943" and " Avengers"!

Stack guns one on top of the other, up to 6 GUNS HIGH, and take down unrelenting waves of beasts. Bring a friend for two-player action, and upgrade your guns to fire deadly acid rockets, cybernetic bees, chainsaw Yo-yos, even pats of butter and much more!
