PlayStation’s blurs frontiers between video games and real life | I wish I'd thought of that |

For their new Twisted Metal video game, Playstation invites gamers to control (via the Web) a real M249-SAW firing at an ice cream truck and other objects in the desert. Gamers queue at to control the powerful gun, with about 1,500 expected to get turns of 30 seconds each over two days of mayhem. Three gamers will get 90 seconds of shooting time for the grand finale, which will be punctuated by the explosion of the truck. The results will be livecast from the site.
