D-Box
 
Does anyone use or even care about this feature?

Does anyone even have the hardware installed?

I dont even know what D-Box is.... anyone want to explain?

It's a motion code system. It makes your chair move along with the action in the movie/game. Personally I'm not very interested for movies. There are some action movies that it might suit, especially ones with first person flight scenes, but for the vast majority of films I wouldn't even bother turning it on.

For video games, however, I think it's got some real potential. As sweet as Project Gotham 4 is with a racing wheel and seat, it could only get better with a D-box setup. Assuming of course that it actually works very well. I've never experienced a D-box system, so maybe it would completely suck.

btw: I posted a thread in "smackdown" that is a info/promo article about D-box for those that care to look it up.
and yeah HDD is really hurting when they have to make an article about the addition of D-box to a title. :)):)):-#
It's ridiculously expensive.

The D-box system looks very expensive...it covers the luxury chair & system...whoa...anyone know the actual price? Currently, I'm using a bass shaker under my seat. :D
