I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: haters gonna’ hate. Guinness Book of World Records Gamer’s Edition 2012 confirms that an engineering team from the Delft University of Technology, in the Netherlands, has officially constructed the world’s largest gaming controller. Students Benjamin Allen, Stephen van’t Hof, and Michel Verhulst are the ones responsible for the giant NES controller; taking nearly four weeks to assemble, the 12ft X 5ft 3 in X 1ft 8 in controller cost the team around $6,000 to build, weighing in at a whopping 265 pounds.
And just in case large-scaled controllers aren’t your thing, the video after the jump also features other winners from Guinness this year: the world’s first female Street Fighter champion, some dude who plays Wii inside a wind tunnel for 18 minutes and let us not forget the world’s most successful Pokémon playing family. Like I said: haters gonna’ hate.
