Arcade1Up Introduces The Pac-Man 10-In-1 Couchcade


Do you want to play Pac-Man with genuine(ish) controls but don’t want to stand in front of an arcade cabinet? Do you want to sit on your couch and play classic NAMCO games via a wireless controller with a beanbag bottom? Then Arcade1Up has just the very niche thing for you!
The idea is pretty simple. Arcade1Up has taken their existing Micro Game Console and added a comfy controller that sits across your lap. The controller is themed after the classic Pac-Man cabinet’s controls and wood paneling. Under the wireless controller is a bean bag cushion featuring the iconic Pac-Man maze.
The price, however, is a bit steep. This thing is $179. That’s more than what I paid for a secondhand Arcade1Up Pac-Man cabinet. At least they include an HDMI cable. Seriously, I’ve seen tech companies cheap out on even that basic item.


Easily connect the Micro Game Console to your TV via HDMI port, the wireless control deck features real-feel arcade controls on top, and a soft bean bag bottom. Yep, retrogaming just literally fell into your lap!

The Couchcade has a range of 30′ and runs off of (4) AAA batteries. On top of the original Pac-Man, the console will also come with the following:

  • GALAGA ‘88

It’s the essential mix of NAMCO games we see with nearly every Arcade1Up cabinet or console these days. This version does not support online play or leaderboards, though.
The controller and console specs are as follows:

  • Assembled Dimensions: 19.6”L x 11.2”W x 4.5”H
  • Box Dimensions: 21.3” Lx 6.0”W x 13.6”H
  • Weight: 7.0 lbs
  • 2.4Ghz Wireless Control Deck
  • Control Deck powered by 4 “AAA” (Not Included)
  • Adjustable Volume
  • HDMI Micro Game Console
  • HMDI & USB cables included
