    Yep. It's basically the 1%'ers version of buying a pinball machine or old arcade cabinet to put in your den. The important factor is that it's big and eye-catching and tells everyone that comes over to visit that you have the money to throw around on something like that.

    One thing I've learned in my latter years of life, is that alot of mega wealthy people don't even buy things like this. It would be looked at as a waste of money and time. I don't know the market for this product.

    You are right though, they aren't aiming at my broke ass.

    Older people who are very conservative their money wouldn't, but this seems more towards the young "just made my first million" types who care more about having expensive stuff to flaunt their newfound wealth.

    Remember going to the arcade? Yeah those dusty forgotten about places stuffed with old game cabinets. I used to go to the arcade regularly in the mid 80’s, they were sadly killed off In the 90’s when home consoles and PC’s gave us games that were just like a sometimes better then the arcade. Arcades need to invest in equipment like this, imagine 8 of these all running r/factor, I racing or similar at ultra spec, I’d go and pay money to play that. This isn’t affordable by your average bedroom/man cave racer but specialist gaming venues with equipment like this would be cool.

    Oh boy can I imagine that. they'd need 16 tech guys just to sort out the problems. Please anything other than that bug laden early access thing called rFactor 2.

    Put the name Lada on it and it will be much, much cheaper.
