Being a virtual soldier is easy. After all, getting shot and killed is no more annoying than having to reload the last save file or man a checkpoint. But for the truly hardcore, D-Box will distribute a special first-person-shooter vest that will let gamers feel each shot as it lands. (D-Box is also the distributor of motion gaming chairs like the GP-200.)
Like the 3rd Space FPS Gaming Vest before it, this product works on the principle of air pressure. Four pads on the front and two behind will simulate shots to the body. Thankfully, a D-Box representative said the blows will feel no more painful than a friendly pat.
There's a list of games, like Call of Duty 2, that the vest is compatible with. The availability date isn't firm yet, but for now we know the unit should retail for around $315 when it hits the Singapore market.
