Inviting dozens of friends over to play video games would typically end in a cramped basement choked by tangled cables and complaints of rug burn. East Coast Gaming's truck rejuvenates the embattled tradition of the LAN party with current-generation equipment and limo-like amenities. Up to 28 players at a time work wireless controllers as seven large flat-screen televisions—four inside and three outside—flash with popular games for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii. Inside the climate-controlled truck, gamers enjoy plush seating, a booming sound system that can be hooked to the host's iPod, and such visual spectacles as a color-changing ceiling and laser light show.
