TN Games has unveiled a cool new gadget for first person shooter players: a vest that provides force feedback when you get shot.
Both the TN Games premier title game 'Incursion' and a 3rd Space enabled version of Activision's 'Call of Duty II' game will be bundled together and shipped with TN Games 3rd Space FPS Vest for $189.00 USD. Consumers can pre-purchase the bundle pack online at with product delivery starting November 21st, 2007.

TN Games has also developed software patches that enable Quake 3, 4, and Doom 3 with 3rd Space technology. Gamers who own or purchase these titles can purchase the 3rd Space FPS Vest and easily download the patches from free of charge.

"We can't wait for the multitudes of Quake and Doom gamers to strap on our vests and start 3rd Spacing." said Mark Ombrellaro, Founder/CEO, TN Games. "We believe it will not only enhance these best selling titles but bring an unprecedented new physical experience to each gamer. We will announce more 3rd Space enabled titles in the near future, bringing a seamless and interchangeable new physical reality gaming experience to an ever expanding list of current and future version titles." he continued.

TN Games patented impact-generating 3rd Space technology utilizes a quiet and durable air source to fire 8 pneumatic cells embedded in the vest. The cells are designed to simulate the direction and force of bullet fire in a first-person shooter game. In addition, a wide array of sensory experiences, from crushing explosions to fear-inducing finger taps on the gamers' shoulders, can be experienced with the 3rd Space FPS Vest. The vest is available in black, digital camouflage and comes in two highly adjustable sizes ensuring a comfortable, custom fit.

The 3rd Space FPS Vest takes game players beyond the usual sights and sounds, creating a true spatial awareness of the world your character inhabits. Unlike traditional vibration-based force feedback, the 3rd Space Vest is an impact generating device which gives a gamer physical contact precisely when it happens.

You can buy it at TN Games for $169.99. You can get it in black, camo and pink and you can also choose between small/medium and large/XL.
