New Trend: Big Screen Gaming http://www.aliceandbill.com
North Logan Utah of all places has stumbled onto a major new gaming trend - big screen tourneys at $60 per team of four or $3 per spectator. They took a movie theater, hooked up some XBoxes and went large.
According to MSNBC: "Cinefour theaters in North Logan started a new trend Friday night in video gaming in Cache Valley. Theater managers took four video projectors, set one up in each of four theaters with a Microsoft XBox video game system connected to it, and then let the fun begin for more than 60 people.
"'Tonight blew our minds,' theater co-owner Calvin Timothy said afterward. 'We're definitely going to keep doing this.'
"The game Friday night: 'Halo' a first-person shoot-em-up game in which four people can play on a team against four others. The evening was set up in a tournament format where 16 teams battled each other until the wee hours of Saturday morning to find out who the kings of gaming are in the valley.
"Rick Shurtliff said he drove to Logan from Bountiful just to play in the tournament. He said he often plays four to five hours a night with his friends anyway, so to play it on a huge screen makes it that much better. 'This is going to revolutionize game play,' he said."
We predict this is only the begnning.
