Recently we got information from Gioteck's PR department that they are going to be releasing the HF-1 here in the United States in addition to the UK.
Will it have input delay like all other 3rd party controllers? That is killer for FPS/TPS players.
I've been hoping they would bring this to the states. It looks like a pretty solid controller.
This controller will make me start the PS3 version of multiplat games.
I'll still buy most of my games on 360 because of XBox live, but this would make it easier if it works as advertised.
awesome...a 360 style ps3 controller, this is what i need to finally buy a ps3 cause i really didnt like the ds3 (not bashing it, just personally didnt prefer it), i could have bought some controller converters and just use the 360 controller itself, but i think there was a bit of lag input or something when you use a controller converter edit: oh wait, is it only being released in US or in NA...cause that would mean i still cant get it in canada which would suck :S
there is lag. I've got the converter and it sucks.
I have the Raven, I used it for the first time with GT5 having triggers for brake and throttle is nice but the joystick has a dead spot so steering wasn't that good. Another problem I came across is not all shooters like mag will allow you to switch you fire and aim buttons to the L2 & R2. So your stuck using the L1 & R1 with a controller thats more comfortable using the triggers.
@mranonymous: You should be able to get it in canada too......and I agree with you, Id rather use a 360 controller too, but I've heard bad things about using that converter.
It looks pretty hot but how well does it work?
Meh, i was never one for the 360 controller, i guess it's because I grew up the the dualshock, i just find it's more form fitting, and for me has an aesthetic appeal.
I'd give it a go, but I'll wait for the review, and am hoping that this won't have lag like all of those usb wireless controllers. Looks nice too, hope the build quality is up to par.
Has bluetooth(no stupid usb), X360 layout and triggers(good for some,bad for some), dualshock-like D-pad(good for fighting games), and a flip switch(good for uncharted 2, mag, moh, etc). Good reasons for me to get one, just hope it works good!
Can you guys make sure if this supports sixaxis functionality (I received a mail from their support that sixaxis may not be supported, it could be an error)
I think its not going to support SixAxis. They only downside to this controller. I look forward to getting this and trying it out.
