We were the first campaign to launch on Kickstarter in the UK. We brought forward our plans for Picade to align with the launch because we felt the interest it would generate was worth it!
You might be interested in the custom PCB we're putting together to offload all the input, sound, power, and lighting requirements!
It's been featured on the frontpage of RaspberryPi.org and the Orlando Sentinel.
Good luck with your kickstarter!

With most arcade sticks, swapping out the buttons for your own isn't too tough; will that be the case here?
I think that one would also need 8 buttons to play Street Fighter on MAME/FBA, since you also need buttons for the player 1 coin and player 1 start.

I imagine that would easily add $20 to $40 to the cost of the unit. Personally, I'd love to see a version that just had cutouts for the stick and pushbuttons so that I could add my own stick parts.
If most of you are OK then I wonder if it's linked to the UK launch of Kickstarter. Any Brits successfully connecting to their site at the moment?
Essentially you load up whatever you want, the Picade is just a cabinet, arcade controls, amp + speakers, and screen :)
