Thrustmaster T.Flight Hotas X; the PS3 Attitude Review

PS3 Attitude writes: "There are no two ways about it. The Thrustmaster T.Flight Hotas X is big. Really big.

Having a sizeable peripheral could be seen as a boon or a millstone. If size is important to you, if lengthy and vaguely pornographic product names appeal and if having something substantial in both your hands when you play is important, you're going to love the T.Flight Hotas X.

But if you're the kind of person that shuns alternative control systems like steering wheels because they are too bulky, you might think twice about a joystick that has the same footprint as your average laptop computer.

Of course, nobody really cares how big a peripheral is as long as it is good fun, useful and enhances your gaming experience; Guitar Hero and Rock Band are testament to that. So how does this particular stick of joy stack up in the fun stakes?" (PC, PS3, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.) -

Sounds good, as a PS3 owner it may be worth a purchase especially if more games are released that are suitable for it.

Not the size is the most important here. There are no games for it, that the problem. ("Edge of Chaos"- bring it back!)

Not quite true...
HAWX is a given - Blazing Angels 2 works well once you use the built-in mapping function.

It has a PC/PS3 switch, and there's loads of PC titles that work with it too.

Of course, it would be nice to see more PS3 flight titles, but since this stick is 'cheap as chips' it is worth getting just for HAWX, in the same way that buying the guitar was worth it just for Guitar Hero when it first came out.
