There are a number of retro video game revivals, and this 'Retro Space' machine channels the fun and simplicity of 1970s arcade games.

'Retro Space' comes with a pack of over 100 classic arcade games and even features authentic vintage arcade controls. The machine is made in the Netherlands and was designed by Martijn Koch.

Implications - Classic games have never been gone nor are they forgotten. Instead, businesses understand the value of nostalgia and have evolved old classics to suit the current generation. Companies have the option of selling retro versions of their popular games to those who like to reminisce about simpler times. This is a clever marketing strategy, especially if a company offers a game that has value due to its history among gamers.
