KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Knoxville is now home to a video game truck.      

The mobile gaming center called GameTruck Greater Knoxville rolled onto Market Square Friday. It's a mobile gaming theater and the operators call it a party in a box.

GameTruck is a race trailer with 5 TVs, Xbox 360 & One, PlayStation 3 & 4, Nintento Wii and Nintento WiiU and over 100 games to choose from. There is also a couch and plenty of room to   hang out. The truck is also climate-controlled. 

It's toughest critics will be kids, of course, so they got to try it out. So what do the ones we talked to think about this one-of-a-kind truck?      

Charlie Robinson, 8-years-old, put it best by saying, "I like the game truck and I want to live in it! Yeah, that's what I was gonna say!"

GameTruck was founded in 2006 by Scott Novis in Tempe, Arizona.  It is the home of Patented Mobile Video Game Entertainment™.
