They are making a filthy casual version of sword art online. You don't die when you die in the game. I expect the game to be a huge disappointment to many.

You’ll be happy to know it won’t follow the Sword Art Online in-game rule that if you die in the virtual world, you die in real life. Phew.

Dubbed “Sword Art Online The Beginning Project,” this IBM-sponsored concept is based on the popular virtual world anime in which people play a game by the same name. This project is currently accepting applications for over 200 people to test it in Tokyo from March 18 to March 20.

Participants will wear VR headgear and, according to Dengeki Online, will appear in the virtual reality space as 3D scanned avatars, turning their whole bodies into controllers, so to speak—instead of using a traditional gamepad. The VR experience will also take advantage of IBM’s SoftLayer cloud service and its cognitive systems.

In case you missed it, you can check out our review of the most recent Sword Art Online anime.


Actually this is pretty neat I wonder how the game play will be?

Well tell ya what OP I'll bribe IBM to make the hardware they send as lethal as the one in the anime. Then you can live your Kirito fantasies knowing that you are the only legitimate player of SAO.

Think of them as a deadly decease or an unfortunate accident.

People get hit by a car, some get a stroke, and some get a glitch and die

That's a shame the idiots dumb enough to play it won't die in real life. I was hoping when VR started getting tested it would bring down the numbers of some of the incredibly stupid. Oh well... a helmet on your head controlling your brain and all your senses? We might still be lucky.
