When we got an e-mail with "so you think BF3 is realistic?" in the subject line, we figured it was just another Modern Warfare 3 promoter.
But instead, we were directed to YouTube, where we saw something that is bound to incite plenty of discussion amongst gamers and non-gamers alike.
It's the Ultimate Battlefield 3 simulator, built by Channel 5's The Gadget Show. It features an omni-directional treadmill that actually requires you to move (not sure about actual running), a wireless gun system, a grand total of five high-definition projectors within a massive dome, and ridiculous surround sound.
Even more insane is the fact that this piece of virtual reality craziness can actually be purchased in the UK. They'll tell you how much it'll cost on October 24 at 8 p.m. on Channel 5, when the Ultimate Battlefield 3 Simulator debuts on the show. How much would you be willing to pay for it?
