Radical New Controller Might be heading to PS3
Posted by XanTium | 20-12-2006 23:47 EST

 
From the press release:


SplitFish GameWare Inc today announced GameStop is the first to receive the EdgeFX Controller for the Sony Playstation 2. The EdgeFX controller is expected in their retail stores next week.

EdgeFX Controller
The EdgeFX is part of the "FX GameWare Series", our console product line designed for competition game play.

Computer gamers know the best way to control the action is with a keyboard and mouse combination. The EdgeFX puts that same style of game play on the PS2. The EdgeFX has a right hand optical mouse controller and gaming pad with a detachable left hand controller. During game play, the left hand controller is used to move while the right rumble-mouse is used to shoot, look left, right, up and down.

The EdgeFX features all the normal buttons of a PS2 controller and complete support for all PS2 games, it also features force feed back, a speed button to adjust the overall controller speed and a focus button to switch to precision mode.

The EdgeFX allows you to move at maximum speeds and then instantly slow down for precision targeted shooting when the focus button is pressed. The rumble-mouse in the right hand adds to a true interactive experience. The suggested retail price for the EdgeFX Controller is $69.99.

SplitFish has patents pending on key internal portions of this technology. We expect the retail EdgeFX PS3 version that is now in production, to be available soon. Further we are measuring the demand for the readied xBox Halo designed version.

That looks pretty killer. Half controller, half mouse. That would be great for FPS. I wish they would release that for the 360. We have the XFPS, but that "moutroller" would take up less room. Cool design.

Although they should have put some of the buttons on the mouse, on the face of it, not all 4 at your thumb.

Not my cup of tea, also why the hell are they making this for the ps2. They talk about how important this is for first person shooters and then make it for the ps2 the console that has the worst fps game line up. Pretty wierd.

I bet it costs a lot as well dry.gif

Yes, Yes, didnt realise it was for the PS2 and not the 3. But yes in that case it will work on XFPS, wicked.
