You wanna get shot like 50 Cent?

So, do ya?

What do you guys think about this sort of technology being developed to a more advanced stage? If they released something that made you truly feel getting stabbed or shot, but you didn't technically suffer any damage, would you really want to try it out?

Can I then use the firearm attack as some automatic badge of bravura to ride a breakout album to the top of the charts, only to follow it with increasingly disappointing and hackneyed albums with me eventually ending up wallowing in obscurity?

I can already feel Master Chief's pain everytime I die playing Halo 3 on Live. I don't think I'd want to really feel it.

I would like to try it, but I certainly wouldn't want to use it constantly.

Looks like it's just more force feedback. It's not going to feel like you're actually shot or stabbed. I'd try it, but don't know how much I'd want to use it.

So your controller has a cattle prod in it?

I remember back in the 16 bit days something similar. It was some kind of back pack attachment that when you get hit in a fighting game you'd get some kind of strong vibration. Anyone here remember what it was called?

I'd rather go play paintball. It certainly smarts when you get hit -- not gunshot pain, of course, but it does hurt.
