The mother of all game desks

A game station for the true aficionado

Japanese companies have historically employed a unique nomenclature in their game products. Think Pac-Man, GameBoy and, when they tired of human references, Pokemon.

But with the "Roccaforte," they hit it spot-on. We have no idea what the name means, but to us it conjures images of something formidable or even gargantuan--both adjectives that can describe this monstrous game station, which can apparently accommodate three monitors, at least two joysticks and all manner of peripherals. (More photos here.)

Kotaku says the set-up is made by a Japanese company called M-S-Y and retails for $500. That's just for the desk, mind you, but game aficionados might still find this a fair price--especially if they live in Tokyo or some other place where space is at a premium.
