Largest NES Controller
And it works!

Dutch students have built the world’s largest functioning NES controller. The gamepad measures "around 11.8 feet by 5.2 feet". Gamers with big hands have something to look forward to, the question now is how will they ship it?

LOL It would take like 5 people to play Super Mario Brothers... This would be awesome at partys!
This is old, unless this is bigger. I Remember seeing this on AoTS about a year ago and it took 3. One for each of the buttons and one for the d-pad

    Gift
  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    but aya neo is a chinese portable gaming pc and its still like double the price
    Gift
  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    for slightly weaker hardware, at that
    Gift
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    It would be probable for Aya neo to release something around the same price to compete

  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    theyre a fairly new startup, they cant afford to take that kind of loss
    Gift
  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    and they announced the pro after steam deck's announcement

  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    which is even more expensive

    Valve just has fuck it money and can get away with it no telling what specs portability can bring by next summer
    Gift
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:

  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    thats exactly it, id guess theyre literally losing like $200 per steam deck sold

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Only dumb move they made was not doing standard m. 2

  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    still worth it in the long term to get more people into their ecosystem and into linux gaming
