There's a new heavyweight champion of the gaming world — a 265lbs, 12-foot wide NES controller that cost around £4,000 ($6,000) to build. It was designed by Ben Allen, an engineering student at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. It's on display at Liverpool St. station in London to promote the new edition of the Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition, meaning it has official status as the world's largest video game controller. The device is fully working, though you'll need some friends and a lot of coordination if you're going to get past the first stage of Mega Man 2.
