Alright, so that question is a little bit unfair since the NES controller in question is actually a full-fledged coffee table. It’s made completely out of wood, but it’s a faithful recreation of that famous controller that many of us grew to love when it was released in 1985. It also costs a whopping $2,300 and around 4 to 6 weeks to make, as the craftsman creates them all by hand. It’s a neat piece of nostalgia that any Nintendo fan would probably love to have in their game room.

What do you think? Would you use this coffee table?

    Maybe for a couple hundred. Although I’d consider paying more if it was actually funtional! Haha!

      Yep, that would be damn awesome. I still remember having a discussion with a friend who thought Apple would release an iTable… I’ll leave you to ponder the horrors of something like that ๐Ÿ˜›

    Question is: Can it play games?

    I’d rather buy 38 games with that money, but it looks wonderfully done.
