TRON ’80s Nostalgia Entices Older Gamers to Go Retro with Custom Dream Arcades

There are over 1.5 billion gamers in the world today. And a large number of them, like myself, grew up with the birth of the games industry in the arcades. Back in the day, games like Pong, Ms. Pac-Man and Donkey Kong introduced the first generation of gamers to the magic of interactive entertainment. The recent success of Walt Disney Studios’ TRON: Legacy film, which raked in over $390 million at the global box office and now tops both the rental and retail Blu-ray Disc and DVD charts, has been a boon to companies like Folsom, CA-based Dream Arcades, LLC., which create custom arcade machines for homes and offices. (Arcade, Asteroids, Atari, Big Buck Hunter Pro, Capcom, Donkey Kong , Golden Tee 2011, Midway, PC, PS3, Retro, Spy Hunter, Xbox 360)

I've been into Coin-ops for a while now, and this film has raised the prices of my hobbie :( Sad times! I'm currently running a Sega Model 3, so not particularly retro, but still fun :)
