Pandora Box 10th Anniversary Edition Review!

On today’s episode of Pdubs Arcade Loft, we’re going to take a look at the Pandora’s Box 10th Anniversary Edition. This latest version of the Pandora’s Box comes with over 5,000 games included, but is it really worth it? Let’s find out!

If you’ve been following the channel, you know I picked up a Chulix Candy Cab from the Captain’s Auctions Warehouse not too long ago, which came with the Pandora’s Box 9.0. However, this 10th Anniversary Edition doesn’t have the improvements I was looking for. Will this be a plug-and-play swap that I keep forever, or is it a bust? Let’s dive into the Pandora’s Box 10th Anniversary Edition and explore its features.

Features of the Pandora’s Box 10th Anniversary Edition

If you take a look at the Pandora’s Box 10th Anniversary Edition, you’ll notice it has the arcade version, which requires using a JAMMA harness or connectors. There are two USB ports on the side for light guns, trackballs, or game controllers. It also features a setting button that allows you to enter different settings during boot-up.

The unit includes a volume slider and a 3.5-millimeter audio jack for connecting to external speakers. It offers VGA and HDMI connections for various monitors, and it comes with built-in Wi-Fi and an Ethernet port. The unit even allows the addition of custom light guns.

Improvements and Specifications

The Pandora’s Box 10th Anniversary Edition brings several improvements compared to previous generations, including the ability to search games by alphabet, emulator, and game type. It features up to three button configurations for each console and offers various aspect ratios for different preferences.

However, when it comes to running 3D games, there seem to be some issues with stuttering, screen blinking, and audio problems. While some games run well, others suffer from performance glitches.

Here are the detailed specifications of the Pandora’s Box 10th Anniversary Edition:

User Interface

The user interface of the Pandora’s Box 10th Anniversary Edition hasn’t undergone significant improvements and remains similar to previous versions. It offers various search tools, such as searching by alphabet, manual game search, and keyboard input. These improvements aid in finding games efficiently among the vast collection.

Performance of 3D Games

While the Pandora’s Box 10th Anniversary Edition promises a collection of 61 light gun games, the performance of some 3D games is hit or miss. Some 3D games suffer from screen blinking, stuttering, and audio choppiness, affecting the overall gaming experience.

Final Verdict

The Pandora’s Box 10th Anniversary Edition can be a fun plug-and-play solution for those seeking to play classic arcade games without much hassle. However, the hit-or-miss performance, especially with 3D games, might disappoint some users. The promised compatibility with upcoming light guns offers a glimmer of hope, but if it doesn’t address the issues, some users might prefer other alternatives or consider custom mods to improve performance.


In conclusion, the Pandora’s Box 10th Anniversary Edition has its strengths and weaknesses. While it boasts a vast collection of games and some useful features, the performance of certain 3D games and audio issues might deter some users. Its a really good plug-in-play game board that doesn’t require any additional configuration, it plays right out of the box. However, ultimately, it comes down to individual preferences and whether you are willing to overlook these shortcomings for the convenience of a plug-and-play solution.
