Technology developer Nvidia created what it termed “the world’s smallest gaming arcade” last week, as it unveiled a red phone box in Manchester’s Exchange Square complete with streaming hardware allowing access to 2,000 games.

 

The neon-lit miniature arcade was launched on 27 October to mark the release of the company’s new GeForce Now streaming software, and features a 5G connection, tablet and gamepad, and integrated mini fridge.

“Gaming is a hugely popular and positive past-time,” said a Nvidia spokesperson. “The World’s Smallest Gaming Arcade means that people can get their daily gaming fix when they’re not at home, and without impacting things like work and social life.”

Though the phone box arcade was only available for one day, Nvidia said “GeForce Now is making high-quality gaming accessible to all via the cloud, while ray tracing and DLSS are no longer being the reserve of those with a GPU and gaming rig.”
