Opening Arcade Level 3: Consoles

Gaming, music and drinks.

22 Jan 2011

Level 3 marked the arrival of more than twenty new and vintage consoles. Atari, Mattel, Commodore, Sony and more. We also presented two brand new games by Lieven van Velthoven: Smoke Pong and Room Racers. Music by dj’s Master Fader & The Snail en Emile Zile.


Having fun with consoles - We've put together a collection showcasing the evolution of the console. Level 3: Consoles, opening January 22 at Mediamatic Bank.


We've put together a collection showcasing the evolution of the console. Our journey starts in the seventies, when the very first Pong console was released. The eighties brought us the MB Vectrex and Colecovision, and we continue on through the nineties with consoles like the SNK Neo Geo and the classic Nintendo SNES. You can play games like Golden Axe Warrior, Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, Mortal Kombat or Michael Jackson's Moonwalker, just to name a few. We settle down in the present with Sony's Playstation 3, which has been updated with the latest firmware. In combination with our 55 inch screen, it's the ideal console to play 3D games on. Marvel at the great designs and vintage games, but most of all: have fun playing them.
