Marketing for the PowerGlove focused on immersion in the game. PowerGlove has captured the mind of the American public. It was even on Stephen Colbert recently. Even though it was really cool. It was a commercial failure.
The PowerGlove was
- rated the 7th worst video game controller of all time
- sold $88M US (failure)
- japanese producer declared bankruptcy
It was so bad that people are still complaining about it today.
