Yes, this is a working NES coffee table. This coffee table just kicks ass in so many ways. I can't tell you how I would love to get my hands on this thing. I was asking a few people around Snowblind what they would offer this guy for it I got ranges from $300 to $1000. I am thinking he could get $1000, but I would be willing to take it for $500 (if you are out there, d00d...email me).
