Shaggy July 18, 2007 0




Beginning with the release of EA SPORTS™ NASCAR Racing,

SAN JOSE, Calif – GLOBAL VR today announced that it is now using a newly designed force feedback steering wheel board from Immersion Corporation (Nasdaq:IMMR), a leading developer and licensor of touch feedback technology. The new RoHS-compliant board has been designed to meet the high level of reliability demanded by the coin-op market.

Beginning with the release of EA SPORTS™ NASCAR Racing, GLOBAL VR will provide this updated force feedback board as a standard component, complete with an extended one-year warranty on this part. “We are very excited about this new board and its performance,” stated Ken Bayer, GLOBAL VR’s Executive VP. “Customers, distributors, and operators can continue to look forward to a game play experience that lives up to the GLOBAL VR reputation for fun, excitement, realism, and high performance.”

GLOBAL VR customers will be pleased to learn that Immersion’s new RoHS-compliant board is compatible with all GLOBAL VR driving games including Need for Speed Underground and enjoys a new, low price-point.

For information about other GLOBAL VR products, please visit or contact your local GLOBAL VR distributor or sales representative.”

I’m not sure how much of a difference it will make until I try it but it sounds interesting and if it offers more of an experience that you can’t find at home, then all the better.
