Yes, it's true.

You can have your own Battletech pods for $2000 apiece and play Battletech:Firestorm at home. has secured exclusive rights to market and sell the Virtual World Tesla II System (TM) for home use., the longest running private owner of Virtual World BattleTech VR systems, has struck an agreement with Virtual World Entertainment, LLC to market Tesla II cockpits individually for home and other private use at an estimated cost of $2,000.00 per cockpit.

This is the first time BattleTech VR cockpits have been available to be purchased individually, allowing home consumers the exhileration of the ultimate BattleTech experience at home!

The Tesla II System allows the home enthusiast to play against up to seven computer generated combatants or 'bots', or the player can compete against other "Tesla@Home" owners and operators across the Internet.

Multi-cockpit owners would also have an option to purchase hardware to convert the Tesla II cockpits to the original Tesla system, allowing the owner to run Tesla 4.X BattleTech and Red Planet., in cooperation with Virtual World Entertainment, will support the systems, offer installation guidance and develop 'pod owner' communities to further develop the BattleTech VR experience.
Yikes. And me without ridiculous amounts of cash on hand.
