The crew over at amBX have just signed a quite impressive deal with Sony. Not just Sony, mind you, but the Playstation division themselves.
If you play with the little shockwave demo above, you can see that what amBX is all about. More than the demo shows, however, it’s not just about fun ambient lighting. They provide quality sound, force feedback wristpads, and even fans (yes, little air blowing devices) that really make you feel like you a part of the game.
Currently this thing is for the hardcore of hardcore PC gamers. This deal just inked with the Playstation 3 people is going to open the doors for the folks at amBX to truly go big time.
I encourage everyone out there “What does amBX add to your game?” page, as well as my favorite video this far, the one at the bottom of the Quake 4 page.
Joe Cooke, CMO of amBX had this to say: “amBX has already proved incredibly popular and successful within the PC games, music, movies and apps markets and the Tools & Middleware License agreement with SCEI will allow us to bring amazing light, rumble, sound and air movement experiences to game users.”
