GTA V played on omni-directional treadmill


Yesterday, Miklós posted about GTA V being played on the Oculus Rift through unofficial community software, thereby meeting the casual gaming news quota for the week. I say this because someone felt riding a motorcycle at breakneck speeds through a cyberpunk’esque neon- and rain-drenched virtual Los Angeles wasn’t intense enough and decided that what GTA V really needed was the ability to physically walk into a corner cafe via a omni-directional treadmill then murder everyone.

Hit the jump for the video. Please be warned that the content is of a mature and violent nature, given GTA V‘s general gameplay and theme.

I’m in two minds about this, since it’s essentially advertising for the Virtuix Omni treadmill. Its mix with GTA V‘s fidelity and ultra-violence also makes for uncomfortable viewing, but it’s fascinating to see the combination of technologies and the massive potential it offers for games going forward.

Basically, what I’m saying is that I want this hacked into Mirror’s Edge.
