Matt it looks like you have just been Sallied.

Yeah renting would be a good way of giving you an idea if you would actually use it and how many of people would.

I could get a MAIM emulator (infact ive probably got one) BUT it could look pretty cool in my room / the front room, especially for parties and such

I could buy the second hand cab for 20-30 and then just put a PC inside it...?

That's what I meant when I said about making your own. Although I was referring to actually connecting up the cab style joysticks and buttons too, which is what will take a lot of effort. I guess you could skip that and just run some controller cables through the joystick holes..? Razz
