On the GDC show floor, an exhibitor is demoing a Super Monkey Ball-esque virtual reality system.


But, it’s not for Super Monkey Ball. It’s used for a first person shooter. Players wear glasses, carry a plastic gun, and walk inside a giant “monkey ball.” When you move, your character in-game moves. It looks neat (except for the falling down, which happened a few times to the person playing). Sadly, I didn’t have time to try it. Too busy drafting interviews and getting news about Acquire, Compile Heart and what happened with the now canceled US version of Shining Dragon.
