Hmm...this could certainly be a funny party surprise for your friends. Start playing them in a fighting game, suddenly, you hear to your left...DAMN! What the hell was that?!?:yikes:

Whats with the sudden masochistic turn in videogaming? This would be funny as a joke... But I can't imagine playing with them all of the time.

Maybe we should try to get an interview with Kevin Rose about this mod and ask him, What is he thinkin?? :) Might be something to look in to.

Just don't find any hot women wearing Xbox tank tops because when asked, they will just say "oh yeah, isn't that the Playstation 2 thingy?"

The only thing I'd use this for is shocking friends, other than that it seems retarded.

That's kind of cool. But you'd think it would be a ***** playing something like Halo and getting show with the assault rifle. But hey, I guess that'll make us all hardcore gamers

I dont know, i think it would be good for games like MKDA, you would have to NOT get hit by your opponent so you wouldnt get shocked, make you play better wouldnt it? I know it wont work for all games. Might be cool for like Madden. :)

I've always thought that it would be pretty cool to have a body suit or something and when you get hurt it gives you a little zap in that area. This seems cool, but I'm sure the novelty would wear off pretty quickly.

Especially when someone wires it wrong and it arc electricity through their heart. Then we get to watch someone get sued!!!
