WTF?

It definitely wouldn't be worth it unless u had like 20 people with you. OR MORE.

and even then what the hell are you gonna do? take turns? this idea sounds really cool, but something about it seems a little bit outrageous. i mean honestly. unless u got a 4 player game with 3 other friends this doesnt seem that great. especially since this sorta event seems to need at least 20 or so people.

what do you guys think of this? and it specifically says the 360, i wonder if they would oppose other consoles.

does this seem worth it to u?

my conclusion is that this is a stupid idea on both ciniplex, and microsofts part.

it may be a stupid idea, but the fact is there are people who will pay for this

I remember when the wii first came out I read a story about retirement homes or something renting that out so the old folks could play wii sports on the big screen. :?

That's stupid but I guarantee you, there will be people who will actually pay for it.

Hooked up to one of those digital projectors, I'd assume it looks really nice.

$180 seems kind of cheap considering the amount of money they could have made in ticket sales for a movie for that particular screen in the 2 hour time slot.

I did it too. It was this huge thing though and they had all 3 consoles. My friend paid to get us in. They let us watch whatever movies were playing too.

My friend used to work at the movie theatre back in high school.

Sometimes after hours we would hook up the playstation 2 or xbox and play games. Once we even had a super nintendo hooked up, gaming some TMNT.

Good times :D

Now that I think of it, it would be perfect to have a 16 person Smash Bros Brawl tournament on the big screen. That way you could split the cost with sixteen people, and of course you'd be able to see what the hell you were doing thanks to the huge screen.

It sounds fun and would be worth it for 4 close friends to all chip in, but c'mon for over 100 bucks its not worth your money. If they did offer it for 24 hours, allowed smoking, drinking, all the new movies we could lay your hands on, and no supervision, then heck ya im on board for a baked out drunkin nite of no sleeping and gaming.

As much stupid as this is, playing Left4Dead with 3 buds at a movie theatre would be pretty awesome...
