I emailed Smyths toys and they "currently have no information" on it. I guess it will come over eventually.
I'd love to get one, I think the 3 games are just about enough. I think the laserdisc Firefox game had a similar yoke so maybe they can be modded somehow.

Got my eye on one of these also. Hopefully they make it to UK shores soon.

The Pac Man cabinet is available now at Smyths Toys and I read in the Metro paper yesterday that the Arcade1Up Star Wars/Empire/Jedi cabinet will be released some time next year in the UK.

I'm in Ontario Canada and I've had mine since Christmas. I'm not crazy about the resolution that the game plays at. When the death star is destroyed it looks like solid white bands rather than the individual lines you'd have seen on the real cabinet. I've got the settings so that there is a bit of glow on the lines.

All in all its certainly the best way to play these games aside from the real thing and I'd been looking for a real star wars cabinet locally for a few years. when you consider that it's about a tenth of your total cost for a cabinet (after repairs/maintenance) then it starts to feel pretty good.
