‘Ghost In The Shell’ VR arcade game is a four-on-four firefight

For everybody that’s watched Ghost in the Shell and thought to themselves, “yes, I too would like to experience tearing tanks apart with my bare hands,” your day has come. Well, sort of. After a four-month delay, Bandai Namco’s VR Zone Shinjuku is finally ready to launch its Ghost in the Shell: Arise Stealth Hounds game with large-space full-body tracking.

The game is set on a 20m x 12m flat arena with the eight players split evenly into teams of four. Each competitor wears a modified HTC Vive headset plus MSI’s VR One PC backpack as well as VR markers on their wrists, ankles and hips. The room’s optical motion tracking system uses these markers to translate the user’s movements into the VR experience. And while there aren’t any physical objects in the arena for the players to navigate, their headsets generate a virtual maze of obstacles that they must overcome.

Users will play as a rookie member of Major Kusanagi’s strike force on a mission to eliminate enemy combatants. In addition to running, ducking and jumping through the virtual halls, players will be able to exploit special powers like optical camouflage and cyberbrain hacking to complete their missions (fingers crossed for superhuman tank-tearing strength). The game opens to the public on December 9th.

Oculus Rift bundle discounted to $379 until December 20th

After permanently slashing the Rift and Touch combo price to $399/£399, Oculus is at it again. With Christmas fast approaching, the VR headset bundle is now the cheapest it's been since Black Friday, at $379/£369. (Heads up that Amazon UK is still honoring the £349 Black Friday price for now, though.) The price cut means the device is fast approaching the more affordable Windows Mixed Reality gear on the market. But, the limited time deal is only up until 11.59PM (PT) on December 20th, so you'll have to be quick. You can grab the kit online via Oculus' website and in select stores, including Best Buy, Amazon, and Newegg.

With new games and apps making it onto the Oculus Store everyday, you won't be at a loss for entertainment come Christmas. Aside from the fresh beta release of the Rift Core 2.0 VR interface, Arktika.1 brought some motion-controlled action (from the makers of the Metro series) to the device in October. A companion experience for Pixar's latest smash, Coco, also arrived around the same time. And, you'd be silly to miss out on rhythmic shooter Rez Infinite, which we found to be a transcendental VR journey.
