So it's still in the planning stages and Mayor Jenny Hill is taking expressions of interest from locals who want to create the masterpiece! 

“Council is always looking for more attractions in the city and we have an idea that will appeal to a lot of people,” Cr Hill said.

“We’re putting the call out to businesses to design an oversized computer game console and we would like to see local coders putting their hands up to be involved.

“People of all ages love computer games and this concept will give adults a chance to relive their youth.

“The screen is already there and this games console will give people another entertainment option in Flinders Square.

“A lot of parents find it hard to get their kids away from their smartphones and computers – this installation will make the city more attractive for children and adults."

Council has issued a request for quotes and the process closes on 31 July.
