Coming in from the land of rainbows and sausages, Germany, is the next thing that parents will blame for the downfall of little Johnny: the PainStation. The ultimate in force-feedback, the PainStation employs electric heat/shocks and lashings to
victims players engaged in a funky version of Pong. People who play this actually have to sign waivers due to the amount of injury that can be inflicted, ranging from electrical burns to open smoldering gashes. The images of surviving contestants were too gross to show here.
In Germany this game platform is definitely a sideshow item but imagine the possibilities if it caught on in American arcades. 1 on 1 Soul Calibur 3 with REAL BLOOD! Talk about truly PW|\|3D opponents.
