Interesting idea, but I think it will make gameplay more difficult. Skip to 1:30 to see it in use:
As cool as it would be to hold a realistic looking rifle in front of your TV, use a scope, grenade launcher etc.. I think it would only slow you down. If you want to hold a rifle in your hands and play an FPS I think it’s more suited for the 360 degree Battlefield 3 Simulator I posted about a while back.
Engadget reports this controller will be available soon and is targeted to cost $89 USD.
Thoughts? Many of you gamer/gun lovers throwing money at the screen right now?
If you want to keep it retro at the same time you can strap the Nintendo Zapper Gun Kydex Holster to your opposite hip. Note that I am not responsible when girls decide to throw themselves at you, if you decide to go this route.
I bet that guy really operates like a boss… he’s probably fresh back on leave from the theater.
The lame thing about this controller is that you are basically just holding an over sized bulky PS3 dualshock 3 wireless controller in the shape of a gun, with a trigger to pull to “shoot” instead of pushing a button.
If my commentary didn’t discourage you from this weak excuse for a game gun, you can pre-order it on Amazon for $65 – HERE
