    Found this article linked from slashdot. It's about a theater in San Diego that's converting to a gaming 'arena' .

    I thought you had to get a special license from the publishers to do this...though I'm honestly not sure where I heard that.

    It's definitely a pay-for-play proposition. They're charging the price of a movie for 2 hrs gaming. I assume they just arranged to be 'authorized' through some sort of licencing deal with the various console and game manufacturers.

    Prolly generate a reasonable amount of business for the latter folks.
