Choose from the two leading Pandora Box gameboards.
If you're looking to upgrade your Game on Friends console GT4274 or PB9 then look no further. You can take your game console from Sheep to Wolf.
Our single-board plug-and-play 3D+ upgrade will turn your entry-level slow games machine into one of the fastest gaming consoles with 8k of games.
If you're just looking for a standalone board you can plug into your TV via HDMI or VGA along with gamepads, or an upgrade to your arcade machine? then the EX2 has you covered. 2 USB ports for controllers, 1 for use to control your PC or PS3 and a built-in power switch.
Both GB3000 and EX2 boards use the same s812 chipset as our King consoles. The king console uses the EX2 which is a dual board - we think it's superior, however, the GB3000 3D+ uses a single board which is a perfect fit for upgrading your Game on Friends or PB9 retro gaming console.
The GB3000 3D+ board is the best direct swap you can get for a Pandora's box 9 or Game on Friends console. It brings a very big increase in titles and performance. All plugs and connections are located in the exact same spot, which is critical as they need to line up with the rear of the case. All you need to do is unscrew, unplug then slide in the new gameboard, 4 screws and 3 plugs and the new board is secure and done. Screw the base plate back on and your upgrade is done. Now plug your HDMI and power cable back in and you're up and playing.
This board is actually better, faster and more reliable than its newer version, proving in the Pandora world newer is not always better.
Easy as that but now instead of 1660, you have 8,000 in 1 games, a search function, a games store and a much much faster and more capable gaming machine.
In addition to the Arcade games you also get 3D games which are higher resolution console games like Playstation, Dreamcast and N64 to name a few.
Either of these boards can be used to run your existing arcade machine via a 48-pin loom or our JAMMA converter cable.
Why you can also use either as a standalone. Yes using a power cable, HDMI cable and 2 of our gamepads you can be playing arcade classics in no time.
Having researched and tested many units, we only sell the latest and most reliable retro arcade models and accessories.
Easily connect to your display of choice by using the HDMI or VGA port.

Third Party Reviews
These games boards are top end and bulletproof. Used 2 of them for 2 separate restorations recently and they are easy to setup, use and extremely versatile. Love the fact you can hide certain games and set it up as a coin operated classic arcade machine for customers that prefer that option. You won't find a better model.
PB 3D plus 8000 in 1 - EX2 10000 in 1 games board - Easy upgrade for PB9 Game on Friends
Better off buying off these guys and know exactly what your getting excellent upgrade to the arcade machine (vewlix) than the lower spec Alpha Fight pandora box that was installed super fast delivery also like the personal touches that electroarcade added to the box excellent.
Pros: Everything is faster and has a lot more storage. Obviously a heap more games and supported platforms. Cons: Documentation seems scarce and you need a little knowledge to be able to install your own games and add emulators to it etc.
Just brilliant, works perfectly .. many thanks
