Today the 1st DLC update for SMAR•CADE was released that adds 8 new cabinets and 2 new props. This DLC pack is called "Console Wars - Part 1" and contains the first set of highly requested game consoles in a variety of different cabinets. Just go to the Collect Rewards screen to get your new stuff.
There are too many game consoles out there to get them all into just 1 DLC pack, so in the coming months you can look forward to a couple new consoles being included in the DLC updates each time. This month it included the SteamBox, N64, and SNES console systems.
The first is a Steam Machine prototype modeled after the PISTON Console that Xi3 Corporation is to release next month. While the PISTON will not run Steam OS at its launch, it is said that a simple OS installation can turn it into the perfect little SteamBox. Included with all SteamBox cabinets is a Steam Controller that features a working display screen on it.
Next is Nintendo's classic superstar console the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Modeled after the original 1991 designs from Hiroshi Yamauchi, these cabinets are sure to take you back to the golden age of console gaming. The SNES controller's buttons are actually shaped differently so you know what you're pressing without even looking. Even these technical details are present in the 3D model to enrich the immersive experience of SMAR•CADE.
Last but not least this DLC update brings the revolutionary Nintendo 64 into your virtual world. This system jumped full force into the 3D era of console gaming and featured one of my favorite games of all time, GoldenEye 007. The unmistakable lines of this classic system and its unique controller are preserved to make your virtual experience just that much closer to reality.
Now the top 4 scoring players in each category are displayed on the MotD page. Congratulations to the leaders! And good luck to all of those hoping to build collections that rival my 1st place score. :D
