Nice interview on with the folks from PainStation – “It’s a two player table console that dishes out real pain to bad player’s. People have to place one hand on a so called “PainExecutionUnit” and play an enhanced version of the game “Pong”. If one player misses the ball he gets a dose of punishment in the form of electricity, heat or a small rotating whip. The first player to pull back his hand looses.”Link.


  • The new version of the PainStation also has feathers and gentle things for the timid – Link.

    I seem to remember a similar game in a James Bond movie from the early 80’s. I believe it was “Live or let die”.

    Nah, it was the Bond movie ‘Never Say Never Again’ with Klaus Maria Brandauer as the villain. They wwere playing sort of cross between Battleship, Tempest and Geometry Wars, with pain feedback through the joysticks.
