Xbox Arena[edit]

On January 11, 2006 the arcade room was replaced with an Xbox Arena. The barstools were replaced with couches and the arcade machines were replaced with four Xbox consoles each paired with a TV. For $2 an hour per controller gamers can choose from a growing list of games to play on. The Xboxes are also networked together for the potential of hosting sixteen players simultaneously in one game.
