World’s largest arcade machine is three times an old school cabinet
When everything is getting smaller and smaller, this man wants to bring big back. Jason Camberis, a network engineer from Chicago, USA, has created what is the world’s largest arcade machine and it’s officially recognized by Guinness World Records. Jason’s idea behind building this gigantic video game machine is to remind people of days when they were young and a lot shorter – when they struggled to reach to joysticks and buttons on an arcade machine, yet loved the whole experience of being in front of a video game.
The jumbo-sized arcade machine has everything from the screen to the buttons, and from coins to joysticks made to match its giant structure. Measuring a mammoth 4.41m tall, 1.93m wide and 1.06m deep, the arcade has staircase fixed to the bottom that biggest of players must pull out to reach to the controls comfortably.
According to Jason, who builds and sells custom arcade machines for a living; this largest arcade machine in the world carries 200 plus classic arcade games. ‘The cabinet can play all games; it is compatible with Wii, Xbox, Playstation and all PC games.’ Scroll down to see Jason walk you through his idea and the contraption.
