You might think you have a big TV, but it’s probably not as big as the one that Conan O’Brien used to play Madden NFL this week.
The late-night TV show host took his production team to Dallas and hooked up a PlayStation 4 to the 160 foot-by-72 foot arena screen in the Dallas Cowboys’ stadium. As part of the recurring “Clueless Gamer” bits for his TBS show Conan, O’Brien brought out his assistant to help him play Madden NFL 25, Flower, Need for Speed: Rivals, and Super Street Fighter II Turbo: HD Remix.
You can check out the segment for yourself in the video below:
Conan likely had one of the most expensive gaming setups of all time. The estimated cost of the Cowboys’ screen is more than $40 million. It’s also the largest 1080p screen in the world. The video board has four sides, which when combined, comprise more than 30 million light bulbs and 25,000 square feet of video display. In total, the screens use more than 10.5 million Mitsubishi LEDs.
It would take 4,920 52-inch flat-panel televisions to equal the total screen size of the arena’s Jumbotron (a technology which Sony first developed in the 1980s), which weighs 1.2 million pounds.
That’s one hell of a way to spam crotch punches with Ken in Street Fighter II.
