Powersurge – an "arcade" in LA without any actual arcades
(Thanks to Andy for the tip!)
I have to apologize for missing this one, it was sent to me back on May 13th but I completely had overlooked it until now. In Los Angeles there is a business called PowerSurge – Video Fun and Fitness which sort of works like an arcade – you play games outside of home there – but it doesn’t have any arcade machines in sight. Instead, it’s all about console games, where customers pay for time on one of 38 screens, setup in a gallery-like setting. Customers can pick from games on either the Wii or Xbox 360 and to help set the place apart they have an 82″ or 154″ screen to play on. Looks like an interesting idea and the interior design looks sleek but I would still like to see some proper arcade machines in there.
