"What do you get when you combine one of the world's most popular handheld games with a ridiculously oversized controller? Tetris Dekaris! The arcade cabinet features a Versus mode, where you try to stay alive longer than your opponent, and Co-op, which allows you to trade pieces with friends while you each try to clear as many lines as possible. The game features humongous joysticks, equally large buttons for spinning the blocks around, and force feedback, which kicks in whenever you butt into someone else's piece in Co-op or get attacked by the other player in Versus. Meanwhile, monkeys dance around the screen to a bizarre J-Pop soundtrack on the top of the screen. This is not a game for hardcore Tetris masters, but it looks quite fun if you're just hanging out at the arcade with a friend (or, even better, a girlfriend). "

Looks like Low Rider 6x7. If the garbage on this is anything like it is on standard Tetris (4 lines = 4 garbage lines), the first to score a homer wins. But I guess that's why they call it Tetris. I would imagine that the practicality of the controller compares to that of the Wii Balance Board in Tetris Party.

"force feedback, which kicks in whenever you butt into someone else's piece in Co-op or get attacked by the other player in Versus" - pretty neat idea. I wouldn't mind force feedback in xbox360 tetris games since their controller supports it.
