The world of arcade gaming is witnessing an exciting development with the introduction of the Polycade Sente, a product that builds upon the success of the much-acclaimed Polycade Lux. The Polycade Lux, renowned for its ultimate casual gaming experience, has been a consistently sold-out item in Polycade’s catalog. This high demand reflects the Lux’s popularity, combining both classic and modern gaming experiences in a sleek, innovative design.
The Polycade Lux set a high standard with features like commercial-grade steel construction, a super slim wall-mounted profile, and professional controls. It offered a unique blend of modern and retro gaming, supporting games from various platforms including Steam and GOG. The console was not just a gaming machine but a blend of aesthetics and functionality, designed to fit elegantly into any space. Its game library ranged from iconic classics like Pac-Man and Street Fighter V to modern indie hits, ensuring that every gamer found something to enjoy.
Building on this success, Polycade is now launching the Polycade Sente through a Kickstarter campaign. The Sente retains the core attributes of the Lux but adds a significant new feature: modularity. This new model is designed to be not just a gaming console but a customizable gaming experience. Users can swap out control panels, adding a new dimension of personalization to the arcade machine.
Priced at a more accessible point than the Lux, with an MSRP of $2,499, the Sente aims to bring the premium Polycade experience to a broader audience. It remains a high-quality product, maintaining the standards Polycade is known for, with a powder-coated steel enclosure and quality components like Sanwa joysticks and buttons. The gaming grade PC inside is capable of running both retro classics and the most modern titles.
Aesthetically, the Sente is available in black or white, featuring a “neon” LED backlight with acrylic diffusion strips, and customizable with vinyl stripe and magnetic full-body decals. Functionally, it’s well-suited for both home and commercial environments, with a durable build and commercial-grade controls.
As with the Lux, the Sente supports a wide array of games from various platforms, including Steam, GOG, and Itch.io, as well as ROM files for classic emulation. This ensures a virtually endless library of gaming options, from nostalgic arcade classics to the latest releases.
The Polycade Sente represents a new chapter in the evolution of arcade gaming, offering both quality and flexibility to gamers. Its Kickstarter campaign is not just about launching a new product; it’s about bringing a customizable, high-quality arcade experience into homes and commercial spaces, appealing to both casual gamers and dedicated enthusiasts.
