    If they make a virtual reality combine harvester suit I will be a happy man. "Damn those Cornish genes".

    Seems like a niche product until you realise theres a massive market in the farmer training sector for this sort of stuff.

    Yes, and tractors are not what they used to be!

    Does this come with a scratch and sniff card for that authentic country air smell?

    I would be very much amused if they packaged it using straw for the protective padding, that would be some serious dedication to the theme of the gear.

    Possibilities are endless - goat smell generator, bleet sounder, strap-on horns....

    I didn't know that farm sim actually simulated the controls of vehicles, I thought it was all about budgeting etc. Does anyone know if the simulated controls include the panel for anything being towed and controlled with the rear prop shaft ? My boss would be well chuffed if I could magically learn it all before new year!

    Alan Partridge: You farmers, you don't like outsiders, do you? You like to stick to your own.

    Peter Baxendale Thomas: What do you mean by that?

    Alan Partridge: I've seen the big-eared boys on farms.

    Peter Baxendale Thomas: Oh, for goodness' sake.

    Alan Partridge: If you see a lovely field with a family having a picnic, and there's a nice pond in it, you fill in the pond with concrete, you plough the family into the field, you blow up the tree, and use the leaves to make a dress for your wife who's also your brother.

    That's a farming sim I'd like to play :D

    Obviously, you're not serious about gaming then. If you don't already own a Saitek Mk14 Sexy Udder Sucker, you're just a fringe gamer.

    Is this all just a cunning ploy to actually get "the kids" outdoors by stealth?
    step 1: add complex outdoor type controllers
    step 2: create mobile waterproof outdoor container for gaming
    step 3: move kids to actual farm whilst sleeping
    step 4: free labour?
