Frag FX V.2 Coming Febuary 2009

FragFX v.2 for the Playstation 3

The FragFX v.2 features a separate right hand mouse controller and detachable left hand grip controller, ideal for experiencing the traditional PC mouse and keyboard style gameplay of shooter games in a console environment.

* v.2: Improved optical mouse
* v.2: Improved Frag button
* v.2: Improved mouse sensitivity
* v.2: Improved motion sensitivity
* v.2: Improved mouse buttons
* v.2: Improved d-pad
* v.2: Improved games support

Key FragFX controller features include:

* The right hand mouse controller has the complete set of PS3 controller buttons. The mouse is used during game play to shoot, look left, right, up and down for that same PC style game play experience on the PlayStation 3.
* The mouse is optimized for navigation within the recently announced PlayStation Home virtual world.
* A menu mode on the mouse allows it to double as a regular mouse during menu selections. A lap mouse pad and left hand grip cradle is included with the FragFX to allow for comfortable play in a living room setting.
* The left hand re-programmable grip (nicknamed the "FragChuck" by G4TV) has the full range of 6-axis motion control providing Wii-like motion sensitivity for the PlayStation 3. In games like Resistance: Fall of Man, to reload a weapon or to rifle butt an opponent, the user can swing the FragChuck.
* The FragChuck also offers a game speed dial and frag button. When the frag button is pressed it slows the mouse down to incremental movement for smooth sniper shots. The speed dial allows for instant fast or slow overall game play. These two additional features let the user get out of battles as fast as they get into them.

No rumble?
no blutooth?

Yeah.. Ihave the original and I rarely if ever use it. I dont see anything better about this version. I was hoping for bluetooth and rumble too.

It doesnt even work with all games, which renders it useless. I bought it before I was used to aiming with the analog stick... Now I am half decent with it.

i bought it tested it with resistance 2 but nothing feels better then a real mouse im better with analog den dis crap i turned around and sold it on ebay

This one isn't out yet. It's Second Version. You are supposed to upgrade the firmware with ur PC for more game support. It works with COD 4. My only problem is the clicking button for the mouse.

Simon_Brezhnev3578d ago

yeah thats why i hated it i hate how u clicked i even used the firmware to make it sensitive and i still have to click hard to shoot so i got rid of it

It isn't good that you have to do so much set up with it to make it work right, but once you adjust the settings it works great. It is the only controller I use for CoD4. It doesn't work well with too many games though. It works great for R2, but for FC2 I just used the DS3. Next week I'll find out how well it works with KZ2, but I have a feeling that it won't work too well. If the new version had the mouse tweaked so it worked with all shooters the way it works with CoD, then I'd pick it up. However I am fine with my current one.
