    I didn't bother playing the games at the hotel either, the fact that you got to pay this much money is an excuse for you to bring your own video games at a hotel, like the Nintendo DS, at least they don't charge you for that. The hotel I was in was over in Texas because I went to visit my boyfriend so I stayed at a hotel with him and his parents being there. We were going to check out the games there but it was too much. My boyfriend asked me to purchase an hour of playtime but I didn't want to pay this much, he asked his parents and they said no too. It doesn't matter anyway, because they just rip you off.


    What? Is he not old enough to pay for an overpriced hotel video game hour by himself?

    I remember a few hotels I visited had video games also. So far I've only seen the SNES at the hotels.

    I like hotel in-room games consoles

    They may be a little expensive, but they are still good for keeping you occupied, and trying new games before buying them .

    I remember our Christmas vacation in Florida, USA in 2000; I played a lot of in-room Super Nintendo at the 2 hotels we stayed in. I had so much fun trying lots of different games for the first time. Mom reffered to some of it as trying the Super Nintendo games before buying the "Game Boy equivelents" (example: try Tetris Attack on Super Nintendo and if a good game, buy Pokémon Puzzle Challenge for Game Boy) . This was before I eventually decided to get a Super Nintendo, and right now I do have a Super Nintendo (had it since 2001) . On another note, I DO have Pokémon Puzzle Challenge on my Game Boy .

    i remember about 5 years ago, me and my family stayed at the tropicana hotel in atlantic city. i went over to where the t.v. was, and there was what looked like a genesis, but it wasn't. it had crappy games and cost too much money. so i didn't get to play, but u could look at the titles.

    In Japan, there was a hotel in-room Famicom known as "Famicombox" . Instead of connecting to the hotel network and charging play time to your credit card, the Famicombox was coin operated. Just insert a coin, play games for the amount of time you get for inserting the coin, and when time is up, you get cut off and you are shown a "see you next time" message.

    That sounds an awful lot like those arcade machines with NES games in 'em (PlayChoice 10!)... only in hotel rooms. Badass. I'll bet they had Bio Miracle Bokuette Upa and Super Mario Bros. 2 (Lost Levels!)

    My grandma didn't want anything to do with the N64 at the hotel thing, so she rented a horror movie instead

    The one I saw was a Super Nintendo one... and honestly, that Nintendo 64 thing looks like one o' them bootlegged game controllers with 75000 games in 'em.

    There was games on the TV in the hotel room I stayed in at Hershey during a Girl Scout trip...it was N64, I think. It was pretty much a rip-off because the price was so high, so me and my friend didn't use it. (Two other girls who were in the room with us paid money to use the internet on the TV, though, to check a comment on one of their MySpaces *Because they just COULDN'T survive knowing that someone left a mean comment on their page, THEIR LIVES JUST WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO GO ON if they didn't check it NOW*. But I think they deserved whatever comment they got, because they were bitches and wouldn't let me use the internet when they were done so I could show my friend my deviantArt page. )

    yeah, I remember that controller.

    what would be interesting is if you can convert it to USB then write a driver for it.

    Bam. N64 controller without the need of an adaptoid.

    and KRW, wouldn't the cost of the replacement controller reflect on his parent's hotel bill? I'm shocked he got away with it.

    I'm pretty sure the hotel I used to go to had LodgeNet. Man, that was fun. I played a lot of Street Fighter II and Super Punch Out


    This was back in 1998/99, they didn't upgrade to Nintendo 64 yet

    the funny thing is most TVs Hotels have have Input Outputs for game system so you can plug your own stuff in, but its real hard to crack it to be able to play it

    oh yea the last one I went to had a Gamecube controller, I was on a volunteer thing and I ask the dude in charge if I could buy a game(and I would pay) he said no it was only like 5 bucks an hour and the fucking arcade closed!!! what sick monster closes one!!!!

    I almost felt like that when I brought my Nintendo Gamecube with me to a hotel.

    As much as i think stealing is wrong, that controller looks good. Any chance of providing us with a picture of the whole thing?

    Don't forget about how the SNES LodgeNet controller has multiple personality disorder (it looks like a combination of a SNES controller, a Genesis controller and an Atari Jaguar controller).
