    Ummm, if you tun your head, how are you supposed to see what's on the screen? And if they do it like the demo vid, the only way it would be useful is if you sat close. Sit far away, and you either have to move too far to get it to track properly, or it will move the screen too far with a small movement from you.

    Neat idea, but flawed.

    Yeah I thought the same thing about turning your head to far and not seeing the screen lol, but surly they thought about that so it shouldn't be a problem. As for siting to close, that was still a Demo and hopefully then can get it so you can be further back if you like. I thought it was close so you can see it better on the video. PSeye should have a zoom or some sort of calibration feature set in it to detect you from farther away.

    She thinks I play to many games already and "You just bought a Wii last year". I play maybe twice a week anymore. PC or Wii. I swear I think she wants me dead. My day goes like this.

    1. Wake up.
    2. Get kids ready for school (Two girls) within one hour.
    3. Drive an hour and a half to work.
    4. Work 9 to 10 hours.
    5. Drive an hour and a half home.
    6. Eat dinner.
    7. Bath the kids.
    8. Read kids a story.
    9. Go to sleep.
    10. Repeat.

    I also dont get weekends off. My wife only has Sunday off so I babysit all day on Saturdays.
    Another year or so of this and Ill have a mental break down. :laugh:

    His testicles would be swinging from the lampost down the street after his wife's fit of rage perhaps?
    Got Arkham Asylum as a birthday present from my dad today.

    Testicles and birthday presents yum!

    haha sorry i couldn't help myself.

    My girlfriend or faience whatever you wanna call it.
    Use to bitch at me for playing my games on my 46 inch tv
    so the solution was buy a smaller tv for the room and tell her to relax and lay down and use it.

    Tell her it's a Blu Ray and Network Media player. It has nothing to do with games at all. :D

    I just don't think anything that makes me move around to play a game is cool. If I did, I'd play Wii a hell of a lot more.

    Who do you think you're talking to? I'm from your generation. I used to beg my dad for game systems all the time with ever excuse I could think of. You know the whole "Hand/eye coordination" bit? :laugh:

    Shes smart and not likely to give into guilt. I even tried to tell her about how she could look at pictures of the kids on the big tv with it. However she knew about the USB port on the side of the tv! I think I'm screwed and not in a good way.

    Its not that hard to do haha, the hardest part is hoping you don't get someone who thoroughly inspects the unit to see if anything has been tampered with ;)

    I was lucky because a friend had recently purchased an 80GB from a local store so I borrowed his receipt ;)
