SplitFish FragFX PS3 Review
Posted by XanTium | 27-6-2007 20:17 EST

 
From ign.com:


Dedicated PC gamers have always stood behind their platform as the best for first person shooter titles thanks to the accuracy and precision offered by the classic mouse and keyboard control combination. While the FPS genre has, over several years, established itself in the console space thanks to major titles like Halo, there will always be a contingent of players who shun dual analog sticks and consequently console FPS titles.

Happily, there exists new hope for the mouse-palming FPS faithful who want to get some console action going on. Accessory manufacturer SplitFish, the company behind the innovative MotionFX for the PS2, is now launching the rather unique FragFX controller for the PlayStation 3. The controller basically breaks a SIXAXIS in two, replacing the right analog stick with an optical mouse and moving the left analog stick to a Wii Nunchuck-like dongle.

The FragFX for the PS3 is a rather solid product, and is one of the few alternative control options we've tested that has actually given us an advantage in gameplay. Coupled with the FragFX's capabilities as a normal mouse for the PlayStation Browser, we can easily recommend the controller to hardcore and casual FPS fans on the PlayStation 3. The FragFX will be shipping this month in two flavors: a wired model for $59.99 and a Bluetooth wireless version for $69.99.

The problem here is that no one has actually been able to get a FragFX yet....

I actually have one now, unfortunately. I think mine might be defective, because the sensitivity range on the mouse itself is worse than a $2 ball mouse.

Splitfish is supposedly sending me a replacement...but it's been a week and a half and I have not heard anything yet....I may just return it through amazon.
