Compensating for something sport?

One of the things that I have never been able to see on my trips to Vegas for CES is the massive light show on Freemont Street. I have missed that each time I went. It appears that China has a massive screen that covers a street that is very similar to what we have in Vegas.

The big difference is that the Chinese folks that run the screen will apparently rent it out for you to use personally. A Chinese game geek that is apparently loaded has paid for the privilege of gaming on the gigantic screen for a night. The massive screen is 820-feet long and is made up of three different screens in a video wall or ceiling as it may be.

The game the geek played is apparently some Chinese rip off of WoW. With WoW global if I were to spend $15K to play a MMORPG, I would at least play the real thing. The aspect ratio of the game prevented the dude from spanning it across all three of the screens, but the fact that it's 820-feet from end to end would have made it very hard to see an enemy at the edge of the image from a distance about as long as a football field.

The guy was given a deck chair and an area marked off around him for playing the game all night for his $15K. I would expect a freaking recliner or something for that much money. Along with a butler to bring me all the Doritos and Dr. Pepper I could swill and blow cool air on my sweaty mitts while I played. Check out the video below to see the geek in action.
