Just spotted this trailer for the video game related movie Gamer. Obviously it is just a trailer but its central concept of gamers controlling real human avatars in a MMPG is quite interesting. The US army is already using robots controlled by remote users for surveillance in war zones. Gamer goes a step beyond to give users control over real people (in this case criminals). Would you play a game differently if you knew that getting shot meant that someone would actually lose there life?
