Looks like they used a Stern cab as well.

Is it just the angle of the photo, or is the ball-top on that joystick sitting extremely low?
If you can read this, it means Photobucket's money grab ruined my signature photos.

Looks like it to me too. Since it was just built as a prop, they probably weren't worried about it being very playable.

Yots' cab is a million times better. I saw Delusional's youtube vid showing it off and I was blown away.

I wonder what movie they were going to use this cab in?

Two-year update -

So a couple of weeks ago, I got an email from someone who said they were a CNN producer who wanted to interview me about this project for a web series they're doing on different aspects of video games. At first, I was thinking, yeah right, and then I saw that he had gotten my information from one of the zapcon organizers. He also cited the video I did with DeL, so I knew he had done his research. I did some asking around and found out that he was legit, so I told them sure. Yesterday, they flew into town and came out to my game room to shoot an interview with me about the process behind creating the cabinet. We also shot some b-roll footage of me doing various things in the game room, like working on a machine and repair. My JAMMA tester, The Troubleshooter II, featured pretty prominently it as well. We talked about the urban legend, the reaction the cabinet has gotten at ZapCon and StarFighters arcade, and some other little things. Today I'm going to a studio to shoot a commercial for the episode.

It was a lot of fun. I will keep you guys posted when the series is done. There's some pretty cool things in it, they're really going for stories that haven't been told yet. He told me it should be sometime in July.

That's rad!  Can't think of a better representative for our hobby.  You're like the perfect mix of respectable and down-to-earthy, plus you have all your teeth.  I'm looking forward to totally doing a, "Hey, I know that guy!"

Nice, I had no idea when we made this video that it would blow up to almost 30k views!

Hey, was the CNN guy's name Joel Rampello?  I got an inquiry a few months back in the comments section of my video asking about the cab for a short film.  I pointed him in the Zapcon direction for more info.

Awesomeness.  I'll say this about Polybius, a friend of mine loves it.  He just goes all zen when he plays it, says it's almost a meditation for him.
