Battlefield 3

I hope EA didn’t pay too much for this:

My first reaction was “meh, that’s it?”.  Did you hardcore gamers think it was cool?

I suck so bad at “new” video games, but I want to try this simulator out so bad:

I mentioned this simulator in the past, but the entire episode wasn’t out online at that point in all its UK glory.  Who wears white glasses?  That guy looks like a next level tool.

The roller treadmill looks like it works awesome!

I can’t believe they used that retarded “app blaster” gun… pretty sad when you’re spending so much money on the rest of the experience.

Some multiplayer gameplay footage:

An INSANE $650,000 simulator built to play the game:

A four by nine meter video dome surrounds the player as they stand on an omni-directional treadmill that lets you walk wherever you want to go. Ten infra-red motion tracking cameras and a sensor on your gun enables the picture to follow where you point it and a Kinect hack controls your jumping and crouching. The fun doesn’t stop there — 12 paintball markers mean that every time you get shot in the game, you’ll feel it. 

Nuts… lots more pictures and info over at Engadget.

FPS simulators still have a long way to go, but this is definitely a step in the right direction.   Thoughts?

I had to double check, but this video IS on EA’s actual Battlefield channel:

I like Jay-z a lot, and that song is one of his classics… but seriously what a terrible choice of music in the context.

That said, Battlefield 3 is looking pretty sick!
