I can remember staying in hotels and seeing SuperNES controllers hooked up to the TV. Guests could pay large sums of cash to play really old games. I can even remember seeing the same setup with a N64.
Now, a GameCube has been spotted in a hotel room. It works much like these gadgets have in the past, but the selection of games appears to be more appealing. Glen Bayer writes, “They had titles like Geist, Eternal Darkness, Battalion Wars, both Pokemon RPGs, every Mario game, every GCN Mario Party, every Zelda (including the collectors disc and the separate master quest disc), both Metroid Prime’s, both Pikmins, but surprisingly no SSBM.”
At $7.00 an hour, I might be tempted to play for an hour, but my wallet would start to groan after that.
Yeah, this Summer I saw a Gamecube controller hooked up to my hotel TV in Atlantic City, NJ. I was like “Wow I can play Animal Crossing!”
Atlantic City Casino Hotels always had Nintendo systems hooked into the TVs as long as I can remember(Since the SNES). After all if you have a little kid(or Two), you need them to do something when you are playing a little Blackjack. lol
Atlantic City has very little kid activates(Well besides the new beach)
I saw the same GameCube Controller and I think the same games in a Double Tree Disney Suites hotel in Orlando.
I’d like to know how the technology works. Is there a server in the hotel somewhere that holds all the games? Just how does it work?
$7?! That’s like Â£5!!! 0_0′ That’s like throwing my money away to a drunk on the street! Might as well just bring a DS, at least that one won’t bite your wallet every hour! >_<
