Hundreds of Tetris fans plan to gather in Philadelphia for a skyscraper-sized version of the classic video game.
The world’s largest video game “screen” is coming back. It’s actually the facade of the Cira Centre, next to 30th Street Station, where the Guinness record was set last year with ‘Pong.’
It’s an old-school title from the ’70s that has just set a Guinness world record thanks to a Drexel University professor and a University City skyscraper.
Turning the 27-story skyscraper into the world’s biggest video game is the brainchild of Drexel University professor Frank Lee, director of the computer game creation program there.
Drexel University has gotten a very good report card for its computer games program.
