HEXUS.E3 Red Steel is an exclusive Revolution launch title that takes full advantage of the console’s innovative controller and puts players directly into the action-packed first-person experience with the weapon in their hand – literally.

An engaging storyline unfolds as you learn that your fiancée has been kidnapped and her father – a Japanese mafia kingpin – murdered by a rival gang. The only way to save your loved one and defend your honor is to journey from Los Angeles to Japan and confront the Tokyo underworld.

By learning the ancient art of Japanese fighting with your katana and the focused precision of modern firearms, you will progress and adapt yourself to this foreign environment, where skills alone may not guarantee you victory.

Its a shame it was so late to market, I feel for the company - I really do. They have good thoughts and concepts but it just doesn't cut it.

to survive they need to get things out in a more timely fashion, otherwise they will never compete with ATI or NVIDIA.
I agree - its a shame. I was hoping that this solution was good enough to perhaps keep ATI and nvidia honest, guess not.
At least if they ever do make it big-time then they will have decent stock coolers
on paper it looks semi good but it lacks too many features to be a major competitor :(, either ATi or Nvidia should buy them out and use them to make their low end cards. They just don't have the money or status in the industry to make it alone…
I remember having an S3 card as the primary display card to my Voodoo 2.

Those where the days!

Eye catching packaging may pick up some customers in PC World and the like, especially with all those logos on the front.

If they were to put something together with better video playback, I'd consider one for a Media Center project.
