Stationary Arcades May Be Dead, But What About One On Wheels?

With video arcades on the wane, a Florida couple are trying a different approach to public gaming: Packing an arcade's worth of games into a van that can be rented out for parties.

Games2U vehicles have flat screen TVs installed both inside and outside the vehicle, allowing up to 20 people to game at a time. The set ups, depending on the franchise and where you live, includes Playstation 3, Wii and Xbox 360 titles.

The set-up also includes the ability to rent giant hamster balls and laser tag systems.

I like the idea, but I would love it if they actually carted arcade games around to parties. Or better still, like a huge stage that unfolds with fog machines, pyro effects and a stage to play Rock Band or Guitar Hero on. Oh... and groupies, totally need groupies.



    Here is the original, I started this over three years ago in Virginia Beach, VA.

    It is not an arcade. It is not for playing single player games. All 16 systems are linked together. It is set up for a group of friends to be able to play large multiplayer titles. It's like "Live" with real people.
