Play PS3 and Wii on a big TV ... in a hotel?

Hotels used to be a place to throw your suitcases, shower, and sleep. That was about it. If you were at a nice hotel, you could take a dip in their pool and maybe try your luck at the continental breakfast. That was then. This is now. Hotel Tomo has opened up in San Fransisco, boasting a Japanese-style hotel theme complete with electronic doodads and artificial lighting out the wazoo. How often have you seen the words "doodad" and "wazoo" so close together?

The hotel, located in Japantown, is most noted here on PS3 Fanboy for giving us exactly what we want: home away from home. That's right, every hotel room in the joint has an LCD television, iPod docking station, sexy bathrobes and whatever else you'd enjoy in your own room. In addition to this, two gaming suites are available boasting gigantic (6ft.) LCD projection screens and your very own PlayStation 3 or Nintendo Wii to fool around with. Yes, there's WiFi, too.

PlayStation 3 available in a hotel gaming suite with a giant projection screen? That would be a kickin' spot to host some kind of party, wouldn't you think? Not only could you play your favorite games in "actual size" but you could also watch Blu-ray movies as if you were in a private theater. Hats off to you, Hotel Tomo, for giving gamers a home away from home (especially if their parents drag them to a particularly boring event). Let's get more hotels doing this kind of thing!

[Thanks, andyscout!]

6. *Sigh*

New wager - Twenty bucks says the game selection will consist solely of Spiderman 3, Super Rub A Dub and Sonic the Hedgehog.

7. I really like your writing style, its very humourous.

8. What's wrong with Super Rub A Dub? Its actually quite addicting and oddly soothing.

Posted at 5:48PM on May 13th 2007 by Shoaib

9. Yeah.... the fact that you used the word "addicting" kind of devalues your opinion, because it indicates that you're a little kid who's just entertained by the pretty colours. Then again, maybe English isn't your first language or something. Regardless, Super Rub a Dub sucks because it's a shallow, repetitive game with bad controls - and I'm saying that after suffering through the demo. Oh, and the game has been appropriately panned by everyone.

So that's what's wrong with Super Rub a Dub. Really addictive and oddly soothing? Sounds like you're confusing it with Flow.
