After looking at photos of the Vewlix, Sega Lindbergh, and Tekken 6 cabs, I’m really disappointed with the turn aesthetics have taken as a whole. Some of the older candy cabs were very attractive, but I don’t like the look of any of the new HD Japanese cabs.
I have a good setup for my PS3 for VF5, TV is a 57" 1080i CRT RP. I have it running through my HT, so sound is excellent. I’m getting a VSHG for my controller, so I’ll pretty much have an arcade-perfect controller, for VF5 at least.
That being said, there’s still something about playing on an arcade machine. I’ve thought about getting a 26" or 32" LCD HDTV, and working up a modern style DIY cab (no MDF or wood, I’d want a sit-down style, more similar to a Japanese cab). I’d probably never do it, but it is nice to think about.
