akator Posted October 5, 2022 Share Posted October 5, 2022 The PowKiddy A12 was released about 3 years ago. I was looking at this for a few years but couldn't find a reason to buy one as I already have several original systems and a nice emulation setup with arcade controls. Over the last month I decided it would be nice to have a simple tabletop arcade station that I can leave on without inflating my electric bill and play in passing whenever I feel like it. I've got Batocera running on the A12 and I'm pleasantly surprised by how well it works. I watched YouTube videos and read reviews about it before purchasing and expected the controls and screen to be lacking, but it's far better than I expected. It suits my needs as a low-powered tabletop solution. There are several videos about modding these to improve them but at this point I don't see the need since I can fire up the full-powered emulation rig if I need higher quality. Anyone else have one of these? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
