Companies including Jakks Pacific, Radica, Majesco, and Atari produce TV games. These mini-consoles have a number of video games built in, are usually battery operated, and connect directly to a TV's audio and composite video jacks. Typically the entire system fits inside the controller.

The "arcade" games that are available on TV games vary in quality from fairly authentic ports (versions of the game reprogrammed for use in the TV game) to versions that resemble the argade game, but lack authenticity in the video and/or audio presentation.

These games make excellent candidates for hacking into (usually small) limited scope arcade cabinets, such as mini-cabinets or bar-top cabinets. It is fairly easy to attach a power supply and real arcade controls to a TV game's PC board.
