Which consoles are you running in your cabs?

I was thinking to connect a Wii to my New Astro, but then I thought it might get better image in the Naomi, and then I thought twice maybe it was better to buy a cheap Xbox 360 for the Naomi. So just thought about asking what are the best consoles to hook up in our cabs.

I have that Console to Jamma adapter that I got off someone that builds them he's a member here, it's fantastic.

I have the connections for PCE, Saturn & PlayStation. I have probably used the PS one the least, even though you can use that with another cheap controller adapter to run 360 (it is a bit fiddly).

I got the 360 just for the CAVE stuff and have most of the ports, but they play pretty well enough on a flatscreen.

There's a link in my signature to a thread that aims to compile a list of console games for arcade enthusiasts. You can also use it to look up which systems have interesting games for console-in-a-cab setups.

thanks, I actually went through it yesterday but it only lists console exclusive arcade games, XBOX for example is scarce in content this way. I think I will go with Wii and XBox, maybe Dreamcast (I'm quite satisfied with just the Naomi). I will mainly try those cave games and use wii for Nintendo platforms and some puzzle games, not sure which to plug to Naomi which to the Astro.

And ports with extra features: https://forum.arcadeotaku.com/viewtopic ... 36#p302315

If there are arcade ports for the 360 with extra features, I don't know about them, as I don't own the system. But maybe someone can contribute what they know.
