Slighty off topic but heres an exciting piece of hardware you may want to include in your Sanctuary.Also the XIM team may want to look at this for future developments with XIM and uses, made entirely by a third party company not MS!!!

I recently read the post on gamespot: PDP unveils the motion sensing Gametrak Freedom controller for the Xbox 360.

Total Wiimote ripoff, but why the hell use ultrasonic positioning? It is more accurate, but as far as I've understood - susceptible to much more interference. If you're playing an FPS and simply are twisting the controller - pointing to different areas on screen, but not moving the controller from it's position, how accurate is UP then? Can it still map out coordinates the same way that IR does? Also, how well are the sensors able to track wide fast movements?

Despite it's one of those "it's about time" products, I think that wiimote+XIM2 is adequate enough and probably better.

Also, apologies for being off topic. I'll post my set up as well but I need to remove some porn elements from around my desk er dresser that I have my stuff currently set up on... well actually, I'm just still embarrassed that I'm using a 100 year old dresser for a computer desk. I'm getting a good little desk very soon. :P

Interesting how Hacksaw has all of his speakers in front of him... kinda defeats the entire purpose of surround sound.

EDIT: I'll post mine this weekend once I get my desk cleaned up.

I think you should keep the porn adds a bit of character or discretely hide it and we can play a game like wheres wally? ;)

I'll get to post my rig once I clean my room up. It's not great, but it's good for it's purpose. :)

Also, awesome rigs so far.
