Re: The heck is D-BOX?

In Response To: Re: The heck is D-BOX? (thebruce0)

: I describe it as such: D-BOX is to movie theaters what vibrating controllers
: are to video games :)

: Or, you've probably actually experienced a "d-box" type of setup in
: a theme park, on those motion rides. Basically a vibrating (very sensitive
: to dramatic), pivoting seat. Here, a couple of rows in special theaters
: are equipped with that added 'experience' sent along with the film reel.

: Ultimately, it's nothing all that special... but for a movie like Pacific
: Rim - imagine in the high intensity adrenaline pumping massive scale
: monster fights, feeling every enormous pounding impact from a punch; like
: your clench in mimicking the action brought to life for your whole body.
: Or something like that... hehe

: It's a mild bonus that could be appropriate for some movies (about as
: enhancing to a movie as a good vibrating controller is to a game), but IMO
: isn't worth the extra price of admission (could be up to $10 more in
: places). Thankfully Cineplex has the Scene program here, so if I want to
: see a movie in a D-Box, I'll save up 1000 points (as normal) and redeem
: that to get the extra add-on for free. Sweet deal.

I actually find the haptic feedback in controllers to be a functional benefit. It helps me to determine when I'm being shot beyond just the visual cues.
