It's actually better than you think. Imagine the caves in Oblivion. It's all dark but as you approach a camp fire your whole surrounding lights up amber yellow. Very immersive.

I suppose if you play your PC in the dark.

I'm unconvinced... I'd have to see it in QolfWest to make a decision about it.

I tried it with Wolf Quest. My elk hunting times went way down. I can kill a ****ing elk in 6 seconds flat. Used to take me 20 seconds.

Damn. Reading the amBx page I started to think someone was actually making a worth-while force feedback standard. Then I realized they are just using those stupid lights and their own proprietary crap.

I guess I'll have to continue saying "someone needs to make a general force feedback and "immersion" standard for multimedia devices" every time some cool new device comes out that won't last a week.

This is probably as close as anyone has gotten though.

Looks cool, but it needs more gaming support to be worth the price

OK, I wondered if the fans were a component, might be nice for racing games sometimes.

The video there of the actual gameplay shows a few bad things. The lights response time seems a little slow, it would be distracting. Also, the monitor that guy was using was way too small and far away, I'd be noticing those lights soo much.

Finally, can you not use your own speakers with the ambx? If so, that's really lame, because their speakers probably aren't that great.
