If you're in the San Francisco Bay Area, you can participate in a game tournament with a rather enormous twist.
The Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose, CA is hosting its third annual Maxgames tournament on Friday, July the 23rd. It's a console game tournament that includes such GameCube games as Mario Kart Double Dash, Super Smash Brothers Melee and Super Monkey Ball 2.
Normally, we don't alert our worldwide audience of an event in such a small area of the country, but this one is a little different. The final rounds for many of the games at the tournament will be held on a big screen. A very, very large screen.
My TV is bigger than yours!
Imagine playing a game like Mario Kart on the largest TV you can imagine, then make it ten times bigger. They'll be doing that on the big theater screen here, as well as for other games like Halo and SSX3.
