Giant joysticks?   HEATHENS.   Pong is not played with joysticks.

gopher321: Wake me up when it's Space Invaders.


The concept grew from there. Last month, after finally securing the necessary permissions, he and two colleagues successfully tested giant versions of "Pong" as well as the classic games "Snake" and "Space Invaders."

I got a flashback 4 Atari 2600 simulator with tons of games for Christmas. Space Invaders is on there and it's still as addictive as hell. Got the nephews into playing and they were blown away by how primitive the games and graphics are. Yet they played, and played, and played.

I hope they've taken into account how far away from the Cira Center you have to be to actually see the designs resolve.

And for those from Australia, yes, that's true too.
