    I just don't know.. the motions I am seeing in the video look scripted unless the sensitivity has been turned down alot. I see the girl lowering the rifle and it does not move down on the screen. It is a good concept but would require many sensors to work properly.

    Yea, that's what I'm thinking.. Plus, when you look down the sights will it properly hit the target? or is it just for moving the controls, because if so then that will be very confusing to anyone that knows how to use a rifle..

    It's better for console use than pc.This needs a fps game tailor made for it otherwise it's just another gimmick.

    also, it would need sensor bars like a wii I would think.

    I looked at getting it because I'm getting a Rift + Virtuix Omni, but there was something about it I just didn't like TBH. I'm sure there will be more, better, and possibly cheaper options in the near future, so I'll wait and see. If this releases and gets rave reviews, I'll likely pick one up.

    For the PC, you're better of getting a Hydra. Cheaper and usable in more types of games. Plus it uses a magnetic field for it's motion tracking (which has very high precision). Not quite sure what the Delta Six uses.

    If he wants it to work in most fps's he needs to get some 3d glasses to go with or you could be looking at some issue's with sensitivity.

    Maybe work well with the Track IR.. HMMM.....

    Am I the only one hoping Paul Christoforo pokes his head out and makes an ass of himself again?

    It feels more like fake video to me,becuase movements absolutely dont match screen actions

    Feinstein is going to lose her shit over this...pardon the French.

    I would pay money for it NOT to be made. The last thing us gamers need is more attention from Congress (politicians in general).
