Anyone use D-Box motion simulator with AVP Blu-Ray?

It look like Aliens vs Predator was the first title encoded with D-Box technology for Blu-Ray. From their internet page it looks like they make codes for most movies available for download. Has anyone tried this? It looks pretty cool but may be expensive because it requires a capable D-Box controller and a chair with a lift/platform.

I don't have D-Box, but the first three titles to have the encoding are Alien Vs. Predator, Courage Under Fire and Broken Arrow.

D-box is a motion device that you actually put your viewing chair on and it will physically move it in accordance to what's going on on the screen. Kinda like those Disney rides where you sit in front of a huge screen of a roller coaster or something like that and the thing starts moving like you're sitting in the car. BD's are apparently encoded with the D-Box data frame-by-frame.

And for substantially less money you can add a bass shaker to your existing chair that will give you 90% of the same experience and works on any movie of any format.
