Right, for my A2 coursework I am creating a retro arcade table (like those seen in the retro section of DisneyQuest, near the food court) but will play modern consoles.

This is where I need help, I require some information that I can't find anywhere on the net, I need to know the measurements of various console, length, width, and depth, like this:

Disneycrazycrewuk, you are a star!!! and how come you have all those consoles! Also, I forgot to put PS3 on the list Boss Hogg, so if you could measure it, I would be very thankful for that and the same to Chilly. :)

Also, just to check, the measurements for the nunchuck, is that the remote bit or the other bit?

and...

the console would be on a shelf on the outside of the table, like a coffe table with shelfs (obviously will look better than that) so I don't think the sensor bar would be a problem

Maybe one day I'll be able to collect all the consoles, since I usually consider myself a gaming nut, especially since I'm hoping to go do Computer Games Technology at University next summer. I was rather tempted to go out and buy an Xbox when I found out one only cost 40 with 4 games, although I will wait for a 360 Elite (*drools over Elite*)

I've got 1 more to add to my list now, I just got an Xbox today although sadly, the shop I bought it from forgot to give me the connector that goes between the console and the controller :mad:

I hope that comes under my warranty!
