TV Show Features PS3 Controller Operated Virtual Reality Prototype

Ripten Writes: One of the latest episodes of FOX’s “Lie to Me” features a pretty comical (and totally inaccurate) representation of video games. Imagine that.

The situation involved a soldier suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) after returning from Iraq. In an effort to “get to the root of the problem” Dr. Lightman and his team make use of some new “virtual reality” equipment said to have been developed via a grant provided by the Department of Defense. Sounds complicated, high tech, and expensive!

The story is too old to be commented.

Unless he was playing a Kinect game somehow!

Virtual reality is awesome though... I wish Sony MS or Ninty pick up on this before the next gen.

I f*cking love Tim Roth but wtf is this? They could've give him a stick or something and it wouldn't be as ridiculous as this. I don't understand. That is a VR machine and it seems he can move the character by his thoughts. But why is he holding a controller if he doesn't need it for anything?


The Show is amazing, but the this scene is weird.

FrankDaTank2905d ago

yeah i do watch the show but this just seems like the people who thought this up haven't played a video game since atari.

I love this show!

I love when they show the subtle signs of people lying and actually match them up with real people or celebrities who showed the same sign. haha

I love Lie To Me, but wasn't this on quite a while ago?

Also, so what that he's holding a PS3 controller? This is the largest piece of non-news I've seen recently. Stupid >.>
It's a TV show, it's not like it's actually running on a PS3.
