IGN reviews this innovative FPS controller for the PS3.
Nice controller, Its like the Wii's nunchaku remote plus a mouse. To bad it's completely sold out and the wireless version isnt out till christmas... as a PC gamer, i appreciate splitfish doing this, I've treid it out at my friend's house and it really improves my reaction speed in R:FOM, people are going to want this when haze and KZ2 gets released. BTW this would be awsome with most Xbox360 games and i believe it'll eventually be out on the 360 as well, unless microsoft does not let them.
Oh yea... and it took awhile getting used to the mouse buttons for me. I'm used to pressing a number on my keyboard to switch weapons (pc habbit) but once you get used to it. it's smooth sailing.
I'm definitely getting this one for my future FPS games although I'll pass with the wired one. I'm all for wireless now ever since I started using one with the PS3. I've been using wired ones since the NES days and now I realized how awesome wireless is. No more of being forced to play 5-6 feet from you tv set. Also I liked the Frag feature and how you can use it for the PS3 web browser.
I ll have to try it out for myself before I am convinced....especially how games such as UT support keyboard on the PS3 :) dont have to upgrade my pc for this game soooo happy
It works for every game, because it emulates a mouse. So the PS3 just detects it as a normal SIXAXIS controller.
This is total cheating, damnit!!! I want to get one now, because I know that everyone on RFOM will be playing with this and kick everyone's asses. Hopefully it is released in UK soon. How long is the USB wire for the controller?
Thats one hot, sweet controller. Hope developers pay attention to this. Cross platform gaming (RTS & FPS) could be really possible and equal with this.
and about time too, FPS with a controller sux !! I dont think it will be rls for 360 as M$ think its cheating aswell but i disagree, its availble for everyone to buy and doesnt abuse any exploits or bugs, it just enhances the control of the game and besides i dont play online anyway so for single player its a must have.
If splitfish knows what's good for them they would make one for the 360. Being that the 360 is considered to be the FPS console.
Edit: I can see why Microsoft wouldn't allow it to be made but still it would be a nice addition to the 360.
This is a dream come true. Ohh wow I only played FPS on pc never on console cause that sh1t is so hard to aim, but now this thing is a miracle. Wow
I don't understand why everyone likes it so much. Don't you see that your buying into Microsoft's plan when you go and get a mouse to pla on a console. Microsoft's plan wasn's to being in console gaming, there plans are to take it over and slowly kill it so we're playing on computers two gen's down the line. Hasn't anyone else noticed the massive influx of PC games coming to consoles??? Seeing a pattern here? I do and I don't like it, sorry to the X360 & PC people, thats just the way I see it. Sorry for the rant too.
I could say everything you already know, but I'm not going to.
It looks kinda cool, but I'm fine with the stock controller for my FPS'ing. I doubt those expensive peripherals make you any better at the game.
gimmee gimmee gimmee.
I thought of this first buy the way. Thank god someone stole my idea and built one.
the wireless version isn't out??
Till one with rumble is released, which shouldn't be too far off.
