Hello, I am currently building an arcade cabinet which will be running off a pc inside. My control panel has standard arcade controls (sticks, buttons, trackball, spinner) connected through an IPac. I also have usb ports so that I could plug in console controllers. I am running Retro Arcade 2 on the PC and it seems really nice. However, I now see this new Coinops Player 3, would this be an upgrade on Retro Arcade 2? Does anybody know what the differences are?

So i been told the easiest way to look at it is :-

Are you content with the PLAYER pack ?

because there wont be any addons for it…. 

But Retro Arcade 2 (like Next2) has add-on packs and will get more…..

Okay, so I currently have Retro Arcade 2 and have not added any packs and I am perfectly happy with it so sounds like there would be no point in switching to Player 3. I just thought maybe since Player 3 was newer maybe there was some improved functionality like menus or something.

thank you very much for the reply.
