PlayStation Home

This vending machine appeared in Red Bull’s House of Skate area for the PlayStation Home platform. Input the correct button sequence, and win in-game Red Bull swag!

PlayStation Home’s Namco Arcade Center was also outfitted with an interactive soda machine — situated in a prime spot right next to Pac-Man, no less!


007: NightFire

It’s hard to tell for certain whether this vending machine from 007: NightFire for the Game Boy Advance dispenses sodas, but then again, it’s hard to tell much about anything in this game.

Let It Die

Eight frames is all the time in the world. For instance, it only took me one frame to grab this soda machine screenshot from Let It Die on the PlayStation 4. Thanks for the tip, Cornelius!

Avatar High

Avatar High was a browser-based high school sim hosted by TeenNick a few years back. I saw KristenHasClaws mention the game on my Twitter timeline this morning, decided to do a little digging, and hey — it turns out there’s a soda machine!


Why is a vintage soda machine propped up behind an abandoned school bus in the middle of the desert in hidden-object junk-’em-up Pickers? Also, where can I collect my $1,220? Thanks for the submission, Cornelius!


I agree with Rui from Lux-Pain on the Nintendo DS; any cafeteria with multiple vending machines is pretty cool in my book. There’s also a soda machine stationed outside the Wonder DVD emporium.

A soda machine also appears in this concept art from the game.

Gal*Gun 2

“Help swarms of girls escape their demon possessions by using your Pheromone Shot gadget for euphoric exorcisms” in Gal*Gun 2 for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. I don’t know about all that; I’m just here for the Zepsi machine. [Source]

Donkey Kong 64

What’s that behind Candy Kong? Why, it’s a soda machine! This screenshot is from Nintendo’s 1999 “Hot Newz” promotional VHS featuring prerelease gameplay footage from Donkey Kong 64. While the soda machine is replaced by a row of musical instruments in the final release, The Cutting Room Floor has salvaged the prototype’s Koko Konga texture.
