The Rare Arcade Cabinet was released on the 20th April 2013 and was available as a Limited Edition Rare. The cabinet was released whilst there was a campaign for Battle Banzai occurring on the Client and it was released with other rares although they were limited edition ones.
There were only 360 Rare Arcade Cabinets available with a 175 Credit price tag and they were all sold out within 2 minutes. After they sold out, some lucky users managed to gain profit for the rare whilst others settled for a loss - many thought they were ugly due to the appearance and because they were just a recolour of other Furni already available on the Client in the form of the arcade cabinets in red and yellow.
The cabinet was blue in colour and had a pattern on the side, putting many off buying, however, some bought just to hoard and bulk to gain profit in the future - it's unknown how much they're currently worth now. The rare follows on from the Easter campaign that saw the Easter Dino Egg released in the same way - another item that was cheaper than many other Limited Edition Rares, but gained a little profit too.
Originally, players thought the Rare Arcade Cabinet would arrive in the Catalogue under the Banzai Rares section, similar to the Rare Banzai Sphere, Rare Banzai Robo and Rare Bear Head, but this was not the case - players didn't anticipate the release of the machine as a Limited Edition Rare as they thought it would be another recoloured Ice Cream Maker to suit the Executive range called the Exclusive Ice Cream Maker, but this is currently still not released.
Speculation aroused whereby players thought that rares such as Ice Cream Makers, Pillows and Arcade Machines should be suited to a rare release without the Limited Edition tag, but instead available for a limited amount of time for a worthy cost, making them instantly rare, profitable and expensive.
The Rare Arcade Machine looks well in some sort of rooms, mainly game ones due to the appearance and genre they fit in, but also are usually found in casinos with their rarity.
