Jim thinks we’ve blogged about the Virtusphere before, but I can’t find record of it anywhere. It’s been talked about for a couple of years, but it actually seems to be getting somewhere with spheres being places in various cities, like Seattle, Moscow, Redmond and nowhere near us. It’s a VR device, basically. The idea is that you walk around, and so move around the game world. It looks awesome in a “That’ll never get in my bedroom” kind of way.
But the main reason why I’m posting it now is that there’s videos. Woo!
Firstly, here’s a bloke having a crack.
Secondly, here’s two Virtuspheres in mortal combat with one another.
Thirdly, this reminds me of that game in the original Gladiators, Atlasphere.
Fourthly, that makes me think of Jet.
Fifthly, I’m having a lie down.
