Warning: This ultimate Nintendo console set-up will melt your brain
Armageddon might as while begin right now because reality is never going to top this mind-bendingly cool home console display.
Most people feel happy if they manage to fit more than one console under their TV; maybe they’ll customise it with a few stickers or mount the TV on the wall, but no matter how good you think your home entertainment set-up is it’s never going to beat this.
We were first made aware of the Reddit post below by reader Meestah Bull, in the daily Games Inbox, and like so many things on Reddit it’s appeared out of nowhere, without any explanation and doesn’t even seem to have been posted by the same person who made the video.
That means that this may well be a glimpse at video game heaven, with the most outrageously over-the-top TV display ever seen, which includes a giant transforming Switch and four of Nintendo’s earlier consoles.
Whoever the owner/creator is they seem to have a thing against motion controls, as the Wii and Wii U are not featured, but the two oversized Joy-Cons pull out from the side of the TV to reveal a NES, SNES, N64, and GameCube, complete with four controllers in rotating compartments.
The bottom of the TV also opens up to reveal controller connections for each of the consoles and their SCART leads. The device labelled OSSC is an Open Source Scan Converter, commonly used to upscale the resolution of classic consoles.
The whole thing is amazing but also absurd, not least because of the distance the player is sitting from the screen (with his feet up on what looks like a giant Walkman) and the fact that there’s a sofa, and presumably often people sitting on it, between them and the game.
Also, rather sadly, whoever it is only seems to own three games, as you can see them reaching for one of them via a storage area round the side.
We’re also not sure what he’s going to do when the next Nintendo console comes out and he has to find room for that…
