Whether it’s feeling good, looking good or a bit of both, there are plenty of accessories available to add to your gaming experience. We take a look at some of the cool gaming things that you can get your hands on at JB Hi-Fi this month.
MAGICAL WOW POWER!
Arcade1Up Out Run seated arcade machine
Back in the wilds of the mid-1980s, we popped into an arcade and were confronted with the mother of all racing games – SEGA’s Out Run. Now we can all relive those times of one of the most enduring arcade racers ever with this incredible home arcade machine, which brings classic steering, gear shift and pedal controls in a cabinet that you can sit in, just like back in the day. Complete with a light-up marquee, 17-inch colour LCD screen and dual speakers, this highly-desirable conversation piece also packs in SEGA arcade racers Turbo Outrun, Outrunners and Power Drift.

The seat features breathable ‘ActiFit’ material, and the whole thing folds up to allow easier storage or transport.
