Welcome to Bitcade, the UK's leading supplier of new, hand-built arcade machines. Whether you're a die-hard fan of the golden age of arcade gaming or a newcomer looking to experience the nostalgia, Bitcade has something for everyone.

The land of arcade machine shopping may be difficult and we understand the many options of modern takes on Arcade machines that are now available so we have put together an easy buyer's guide to help you make an informed, educated decision. So when your dream machine arrives you can focus on reliving the retro arcade classics knowing you got the best bang for your buck and a machine that is built to last! 


New vs Old?

Whilst we see the appeal for an old retro game machine, after all, Bitcade wouldn't exist without a love for Retro and whilst it may be tempting, there is lots to think about, the fact you are limited to only one game is not the only deciding factor! Old parts, CRT that don't last and are hard to source and replace and no aftercare or support.

New arcades are a great way to have access to nostalgia whilst future proofing the investment you make into an arcade machine, the modern advancements mean you don't have to compromise on the aesthetics or feel of gameplay to achieve multi-game machines allowing you to play all of your favourite retro classics in one machine. With 1 year warranty that can be extended up to 3 at purchase, buying from Bitcade who has been building thousands of machines since 2017 means you won't be left with a machine that can not be serviced or repaired in the future!
