8-Bit Bytes: 2 – Kickstarted Consoles

We talk Billy Mitchell’s quest for redemption, his latest Donkey Kong exploits and his…musical?
Plus Pinball FX 3 gets the Bally/Williams rights back, Arcade1Up has a new 12-in-1 cabinet you are going to want to check out, Starflight 3 is crowdfunding on Fig right now and the “merc with a mouth” has a killer new pinball machine!

We then take a deep dive into crowdfunded consoles and the risk folks take when kickstarting hardware and then talk a bit about hardware that never (or almost never) was.

Finally, we round out the episode with our first question (which of course was from Vinny!)

Also, have you ever played Phoenix? You might want to start practicing…
