Robin Williams (1951-2014) Robin Williams was an absolutely exceptional comedian, talented actor, and holder of a special place in video game history: He was the first really famous gamer I know of. I’m sure there were others, but they kept a comparatively low profile, unlike one...

DAILY MANIFESTO

The Splitfish FragFX Controller For PS3

Posted on Tuesday, October 30 @ 21:45:20 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
Some people prefer to play first person shooters with the keyboard and mouse, others prefer a game controller. I can go either way.

One thing is for sure though, in skilled hands, the keyboard and mouse setup is faster and more accurate. So for those lamenting that they cannot play Resistance: Fall of Man the way they want to, the FragFX might be the answer - a mouse / thumbstick PS3 controller.

Today's product-a-day is one that I think is pretty good.  It just plugs right into the USB port and away you go. It's an odd feeling at first, combining both types of controls, but much like the Wii Nunchuck, you get used to it pretty fast. and frankly, moving with a thumbstick felt more natural to me than w-a-s-d.

It also comes with a "lap board" to move your mouse on. Sensitivity can be adjusted on the fly, and the left-land control has all the tilt functionality of the Sixaxis.

You can't reprogram the buttons, which will be a problem when someone inevitably makes a game where you use Square to fire, but FPS controls are 99% standardized. Also I wish it was wireless.

There's no 360 version yet, which will be  more interesting to me because PC players are actually playing against  Xbox  360 players in games like Shadowrun. Maybe something like this could level the playing field.

On the other hand, it's unlikely that it will be legal in professional gaming.
