edit: price for preassembled kits may be too high. new question:
if we were to create a flat pack vewlix kit (prepainted, you supply the electronics), what would you be willing to pay for it?
a buddy of mine is a professional carpenter and he is currently laid off from his job as a cabinet maker. we were talking about making arcade cabinets and i showed him the vewlix design and he fell in love. so he’s thinking about making cabinets to sell.
they would be similar to the designs found on the donovanmyers site. they would come with a 32" monitor, sanwa parts, and either xbox 360 or ps3 padhacks (i’ll be investigating dual mods so we will probably offer them as well) so that all you will have to do is pop in a console and play.
what i’m wondering is if there is actually a demand for something like this. we’ll be building one in the upcoming weeks just to see what we are up against, but my friend is thinking $2500-$3000 each, as it will take him a solid week to build each one. shipping a cabinet through NAVL would probably run between $300-$400 on top of that (i’ll be doing some investigation to see if i can find anything cheaper/better).
thanks for reading, and please let me know what you guys think.
