What could be better than having your own arcade-style racing game? How about having your own arcade-style racing game with its own beer tap?

The Octane 120 Pro Beer Arcade includes a wireless arcade control panel and 200 different games, along with a built-in keg to keep you hydrated. The arcade has a fully-adjustable steering wheel and seat, dual-motor force feedback, a 2-player control panel with built-in trackball, and a high-output HD projector.

Each unit can hold two 5-gallon (19-liter) kegs or one half-barrel keg, ensuring you always have a drink by your side. A built-in cup holder also makes it possible for you to pour that drink while you play, never having to get up from your seat.

The Octane 120 Pro Beer Arcade is available now for US$5,995 (plus shipping and handling).

Interestingly enough, it isn't the only product of its kind - the Gamerator is a stand-up arcade-style video game system, with a built-in keg fridge and tap.

Sounds like fun, but like actual driving, the motor skills required deteriorate to a point where one loses interest. Although, years ago, we would play "Super Mario Bros." while drinking. Sure, we sucked at it (much more so after catching a buzz) but, on the other hand, we got SO bad it became hilarious.

Unfortunately, most people using this would fill it with swill, or what Americans call "beer"...over carbonated beer flavored soda-pop!

@Ed:

If by Swill, you mean the worlds best craft beer selection, then, yes.

1,753 breweries and counting!

That's how American's do beer. We make it better. We make it new.

I will give you this: there is still plenty of swill here.

But anyone who buys the machine in this article has enough cash on hand to make sure swill never enters the equation.
