Playstation it ain't. This 'video game' has a latexy pod, made from the intestines of mutant amphibians, that plugs directly into the user's spinal column. It powers up through the player's own nervous system, tapping the subconcious, and with several players it networks their brains together. Play on! The producers of the film are Hungarian and it is not by chance, that the X and Z are capitalized in the title, as the letters between them, 'isten', mean 'god' in Hungarian. Typically gooey head-bender from David Cronenberg starring Jude Law and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
