Now here’s the stuff that video game dreams are made of. Imagine being able to use dozens of video game controllers and playing them all in one gaming system.
Who would have thought that video game controllers from 30 years ago can be resurrected into this dream system? Thanks to the elite hacking skills of Patrice Daubaire and Aurelein Chorain, 75 video game controllers can now be played in one gaming system. They aptly called is the MVGS2 or the Multi Video Gaming System 2.
The MVGS2 is actually a PC that has been installed with several emulators for Atari, Nintendo, Sega, and Sony. Daubaire and his team installed a HyperSpin menu so players can easily select from hundreds of games available, much like in an arcade. Each of the 75 controllers has been modified to be connected via a universal VGA cable.
As demonstrated in the team’s video, all you need to do is select any controller, plug it to the connector cables, then select your game. Among the video game classics included in MVGS2 are Pac-Man, Mario, Sonic, Megaman, and tons more. You’d probably be spending hours testing out each and every controller, from old to new.
What’s even more amazing is how the two developers managed to gather up all the generations of Atari, Nintendo, Sega, and Sony controllers (from year 1984 onwards, and all in good working condition, too). That’s quite a lot of collecting. It might even be better if they managed to find two pieces of each controller, so you get to play on two-player mode for any game you like.
So if you still have your old video game consoles gathering up dust somewhere in your home, perhaps the MVGS2 can serve as an inspiration. Combine more than seventy five controllers in a single gaming system? Challenge accepted.
