There are very few gadgets out there worth dropping $4000 dollars on. Even for a high-end gaming PC or HD TV, that's pushing it. And yet, I find myself wanting to blow that huge chunk of change on a machine that can only handle 24-bit arcade games. The Arkeg Drink-n-Game (via Gizmodo) represents the apex of nerd party toys.

This glorious machine consists of a 23” 1080i LCD monitor with a Dell GX260 SFF PC inside it. That cheapo processor can't handle much, but it's more than enough to play any arcade game or emulator from the glory days of console gaming. It's also got WiFi, DVD playback, and a karaoke program, in addition to 69 pre-loaded arcade games (Mortal Kombat II is mentioned specifically). There is a stow-away keyboard, and a traditional arcade control layout.

Of course, the gaming capabilities of the Arkeg are only half the story. This bad-boy also packs a 5 gallon keg, complete with 5lb CO2 bottle and a thermoelectric cooling system to keep your brew chilly and delicious. The tap is even positioned conveniently on the side of the machine, so you can refill your drink while someone else is playing without interrupting their concentration. That's the kind of consideration that shows a company really cares.

If you've got the spare scratch to drop on an alcoholic arcade machine, you can check out the Arkeg website here to buy.
