Ubisoft's Battle Tag launches assault on Texas tomorrow, Canada next week
Software developer Ubisoft got a crazy panning a few months ago when they announced their self-described "hybrid" toy/game "Battle Tag". It's essentially a laser tag setup but one that gives you more than just the 'run and gun' blasting that we're accustomed to. Battle Tag incorporates some FPS style features such as health packs, ammo crates, and multiple game modes that you can customise via software and hook it up to your PC.
Well, after the dust has settled, they're going to do a soft release of the 2 player start up kid at 15 Toys R Us stores in Houston and Austin, Texas to test the US Market. A week later they'll be available in Canada. $129.00 which sounds reasonable price wise, or a total rip off, depending on which camp you sit in for this sort of thing. I have to admit.. I'm keen:)
