    I should have known Bamboo would be the first to post on this. I'm glad I checked before posting, but I will add that the manufacturer's site has a nice video demo. Does anyone here own it? Try it?

        I suppose it would be cool for a realism effect but if you're trying to play competitively it would be a huge disadvantage.
        edit: just heard at the end of the video that you can turn off the recoil effects, so it would just take some getting used to

            Personally wouldnt even want it, cant think of holding it around like a pistol while the character in game is holding a ak or a bazooka, also I cant see how it would be able to play into something like pr or even arma... Kinda seems like someone tried equipping a computer with wii type stuff, would much rather have the thing that reads where your looking (for flight sims and arma), frogot what its called.

              Seems like it would be very uncomfortable to use for any extended period of time. Though force feedback with hit direction might be useful for rapidly responding to incoming fire.

                  Said in the demo that he played for 8 hours (or more) using this and a elbow pad and was comfortable.

                    That is not good enough.

                    For a pistol, it would be fine. For rilfes and such, it's better with a foregrip and stock.
