iTunes for Arcade Gaming

Gamers have been nostalgic for arcade gaming since the arcade market crashed in 2000.

Unfortunately, with no legal way of playing arcade games, gamers pirated arcade games and played them at sub-par experiences on their PCs to try to relive their childhood gaming.

The experience has been bad and their favorite game companies were going out of business.

Gamers have been waiting for someone to create a legitimate way to play these arcade games with the best experience while supporting their favorite game companies.

Just like how iTunes turned the piracy-filled MP3 market into a legitimate $17B business, iiRcade is going to turn the piracy-filled arcade gaming market into a legitimate business that will become $29B in market size by 2027.
