Can you Kick it?

Your next round of Tekken, WWF Smackdown or Mortal Kombat will never be the same.
Using four infrared beams and a touch sensitive pad, Thrustmaster, plan to force players out of their hibernation by translating the players' kicks, punches and other moves into the game being played.

Fighting games, over the past few years, have improved greatly, but as images and animation have changed the way the game is played has remained static.
Thrustmaster are hoping to make fighting games a more aggressive experience for the player by introducing Fighting Arena.

Fighting Arena is, currently, designed for the PlayStation line of consoles, and is expected to be released during the Fall of 2001.

I dont think vr will be mainstream for a while ( its cost a fortune just for some glasses ), and it could be a bit dodgy kicking around with a head set on ( you need a big empty room! ). But this is good, its simple, hopefully wont cost to much, and it makes gaming a bit more interactive. It will be a great way of excersising !

Nothing new with this piece of equipment...SEGA did this a long time ago for the Genesis, called the Activator. It never really caught on however and judging by the level of fitness in america today I doubt this one will also.

It'll be fun with this kind of interactivity!! But it'll definitely take some time to get used to!! ESPECIALLY the combos!!Hey Alien_Sniper, you're not telling me you get beat by girls in Tekken are you??*laughs*
