As i said in the other thread you made sir, i will stick to the conventional way to exercise and game. However, i am excited for you as it does look cool as hell, but too much money for me. You will have to post a video of you playing the new WWE game when it comes through Sir!!

I might play it for kicks and giggles but not with any expectation of doing well.


The gun tracking hasn't progressed enough to be perfect 1:1 movement and even if it did i think the mouse is a better input devices for gun control.


I'll likely go through the single player on easy and maybe pub about a bit though.

Think this might be a better alternative to that STEM system, so you're hands free allowing you to carry a gun and still have functionality with your fingers not having to hold a different controller.

Yeah I looked into that when it was live on kickstarter, and luckily I didn't invest in the STEM kickstarter.


There is another coll one here as well:


For all of these I'm going to wait until some consumer models get released to see which one is the best.


The only things I've actually purchased:

delta 6


hydra (it was on super sale)

360 controller


all the rest I'm waiting for consumer releases.
