Take A Tour Through Michael Jackson's Private Arcade Game Collection

Illustration for article titled Take A Tour Through Michael Jackson's Private Arcade Game Collection

You've seen the guide book, now see the exhibition itself, as you take a 360-degree tour through Michael Jackson's impressive personal collection of arcade cabinets, which were on display in Beverley Hills earlier this year.

If you're at work or on a slower computer, beware: the tour is heavy going on your web browser. But it's worth bookmarking and saving for a quieter moment, if only because you'll rarely, if ever, see something this great in real life.

Argh! I was going to say something smart-assed like "Haw haw! MJ doesn't have a NEO-GEO cabinet, his collection failssss!" and then I saw the MVS 4-slot in the 'Rear Left of Arcade' area. But it's the UGLY model of 4-slot cabinet, so ha! Can't get close enough to see what games are in it though. :<

Seriously though, all that and only ONE MVS cab? Man, if I had a collection like that... (First of all I wouldn't, because there's very little besides a couple MVS cabs, some classic arcade games, a couple newer ones, and some select pinball machines that I could ever want) I'd have a sit-down Japanese NEO-50 (50 inch screen, 6-slot cabinet) for the Metal Slug series, and stand-up US 4-slot cabinets for the Samurai Spirits series (SS1, SS3, SS4, and SSZS) and King of Fighters series (94, 97, 98, 2k3) and probably one more 4-slot for miscellaneous other games.

All-in-all, my bitching aside, WOW. Though, honestly I'm far more impressed with the design of the site interface than the collection. ;o I'm just a geek like that.
