GamingNexus has posted a review of the FragFX mouse/joystick controller for the PS3. They find that the setup works out pretty well for FPS games and that the unit is programmable helps add a lot of value.
LOOK ITS THE WIIMOTE IN BLACK LOL
I didnt know that was funny....did i forget to laugh?? grow up ppl
You forgot to laugh?????? are you OK????? Do you need any assistance Sir? with your medical inability to laugh??? (Thats so funny I forgot to laugh) LOL WHAT ARE YOU FROM THE YEAR 1992? WHAT A TARD
This thing has gotten very mixed reviews on Amazon.com. Only 3 stars, which in my book is fairly mediocre.
Also, its pricey (60 bucks).
thats funny cuz it does look like a wiimote lmao
il pass on this one thx
I dont see no other company making such significant strides in making sure the PC to console community is as smooth as it's going. Xbox was once known as FPS console but with PS3 making such strides, it's going to be tough to have THE best FPS games plus the variety that sony has.
Once Bungie buys back their Halo IP , which shouldnt be hard since it is their creation. Sony should have Halo multiplatform, UTIII, and Killzone.
Not to mention the variety in such games as MGS,FF,Tekken,Heavenly Sword, etc.
Dominationstation3 is really proving that I made the right purchase for next gen.

dude shut up and look at this. http://www.maxconsole.net/?... . same dam thing, grow up
It's almost like an advertisement disguised as a post.
halo is microsoft only b/c they have halo's rights not bungie's its impossible wat master chief appears on ps3 out of nowhere in a new game 4 ps3 even tho masterchief was already in xbox 3 times thats the samething with gears of war epic said yea we r making a gears of war UNIVERSE in the ps3 but not neccaserily gears of war or marcus phenix and UTIII is also coming out on 360 just not the same time and killzone come on r u serious it failed in the ps2 psp and in the future ps3
Its about the mouse controll nothing more , see this is why kidz shouldnt be on line and no disrepect to no one but grow up in here and stopp talkin bout which systems the best just enjoy the one you got. Respet to Predator and Armyless.
i wonder if it really works that well, but pretty sweet set up if your into pc fps, and want to play one one on the ps3 like a pc version
Finally something to replace my garbage Sixaxis with, i'm sick of playing with a controller that is an outdated 10 year old design
10 Year old design? This is coming from the same Xbot who's making love to an 8 year old design (dreamcast controller=xbox controller)

"Sony have treated 3rd party devs like trash"
"Only Xbox 360 gives Bioware the power and freedom they need"
"PS3 will share the Saturn's fate"
"PS3 is too insignificant for people to care anymore"
"the PS3 is so advanced that all the multiplatform games on it look and play worse compared to Xbox 360"
"Another month another AAA game for Xbox 360"
The last 3 hours.
I'll let you decide if he has an agenda.
jeez is the sixaxis that bad ill buy the ps3 when dual shock comes out with mgs4
dude, you don't have a ps3!!!
stop ur making me laugh too hard
its a mouse controller and a wiimote shaped wii nunchuk ... huh go figure... i wonder if it will be useful in games... or the PS controller will be better
Uh this thing has been out for a very long time, I'm surprised you guys haven't heard of it by now. It's freaking dope on Resistance too.
Anybody know when it is comming out?
I am a PC gamer and always wanted mouse on FPS on consoles. Mouse and Keyboard provide the most accurate presiion in FPS.
I got a PS3 and always was ****** off with Resistance due to using anagloue for aiming. I saw this splitfish FragFX mouse and pad thing.
I got this in package after 1 week. Due to my distance their service of devily was good.
I opened the product. Build quality is crap. Plasitc uses feel like gonna break in your hand. Buttons stick and mae noise. If you shake it for sixaxises it feels like buttons are going to fall away.
Now I connected to PS3 and put on Resistance, being my only FPS title. Decection of hardware was no problem. Problem came during game play. Buttons need to be pressed too hard. They are not so sensitive like the PS3 Offical pad. Also due to build quality for buttons to get the press signal you need to nearly press them thru the thin plastic.
Now for mouse. It does not feels comfortable as a PC mouse. Start button is too near the 3 buttons of a mouse, thus I kept hitting start by accident when i tried to aim. This is also due to the fact the middle button needs to be pressed near the start button, if you press more downwards it takes no signal.
Aiming. While better then Analogue stick, is it no near a PC mouse. Its too jerky when you move. I tried setting in game sensitivity with the sensistivity from contorller. 3 Days of trying and its no better. The pad provided is too small. Response feels slow near PC. The sensitivity button is prone to be hit and gets you messed up during gameplay. The Digital pad is not configured correctly. Sometimes pressing LEFT gets signel as UP. The L2 button is utter crap in build quality. It feels like pressing a plasitic and its breaking in your hand. FRAG button is suppose to be sensitive to presure. Due to the fact of having to press hard its barely sensitive.
I rate splifish FragFX 2/10.
Buy ONLY if you are desprate and need a little better control then analogue stick.
This prephiral (not made by Sony, so dont accuse them of copying the Wiimote) got rated 9.1 on IGN, stating that it was the best alternate prephiral for the PS3 and a big step forward for console-FPS players.
Clearly the sh!t
read my review.
IGN where smoking pot when they reviewed it.
They never used a PC for gaming or used a Ball Mouse because even a cheap optical mouse is better then fragFX
Wow! Some people turning their fanboy attitudes in overdrive about a damn mouse. Its truly pathetic!
Its wired too (usb), so don't even look in its direction until they release a bluetooth version
I heard the key to this controller is all about the configuration. You have to tweak it a lot to get it to your liking.
I use it for Warhawk and think it works greatly. In Resistance, the Y Axis is actually slower than the X Axis, which is something the game does not allow you to adjust, so it does stutter a little bit. If you adjust it correctly it works alright, but I found it far more useful in Warhawk. Definitely a learning curve even for PC gamers though, since it's not as sensitive as a PC mouse, but nonetheless useful. In Warhawk best settings are 90% in game and 4 on the mouse.
As for sensitivity, after installing the firmware and making the buttons more sensitive, I've had no problems.
I really would prefer USB/Bluetooth real keys and mouse like Epic are allowing in UT3. I think if UT3 is a huge success for EPIC, other software houses will follow and implement code or pates to allow mouse and keys as an option. Any PC player will tell you, after using mouse and keys, controller is just retarded.
