Those who didn’t fritter away a sufficient portion of their youth playing Tetris got a second chance last night-on the side of a Philadelphia skyscraper. A 29-story version of the classic video game debuted last night on the Cira Centre, and if you thought the experience would be exactly like your old Game Boy, alas: “It’s much different playing on the side of building that’s a half-mile away,” says a 30-year-old fan taking a turn at the controls. “Everything’s happening so quick.” The stunt kicked off Philly Tech Week, notes the AP, ahead of the 30th anniversary of the game’s release.
THIS IS AWESOME! As a gamer and a big fan of Tetris as a kid I would have LOVED to play this. With a price tag of over $50,000 don’t expect it to be coming to your hometown anytime soon but a boy can dream.
