Kiwi gamer given true combat experience

In a unique promotion to establish its military credibility, headset maker Turtle Beach is sending a 24-year-old kiwi gamer to Iraq, in what the promoters say will provide a truly ‘immersive’ feeling of combat.

As reported by Gameplanet, Turtle Beach’s New Zealand distributors Fiveight organised the stunt, and will chart the player’s journey to the war-torn country in a series of five videos.

Check out the promo trailer below, and post your thoughts in the comments under that – is it okay to use a genuine conflict to promote entertainment, or are Turtle Beach getting a little too real?
