    Many who have read my posts know that I have been explaining that the PS3 is more of a PC type of unit than purely a gaming one. Its priced as though it were a computer itself with what it is able to achieve.

    Now, I have personally hated controllers in general. For FPS games, they are just plain out sucky. Mouse and keyboard have always been better in my eyes.

    Now that i see this new controller for the PS3, Im curious to see how well it can change console gaming in this reguard.

    Fragfx PS3 Controller mouse. Looks interesting. If it plays as good as it looks, this might be good news for the PS3.

    Its not misleading at all. Its a new controller and its for the PS3. If it was an official PS3 controller the title would have been "PS3 new official controller revealed"

    I found an interesting news article by they way where the producer for god of war 3 says that sony actually is releasing a rumble feature for their controllers. The downside is, people will probably have to repurchase new controllers eventually for this feature.

    I always thought that an analog stick instead of a keyboard was the next logical step. I still prefer wii vs. mouse, despite the loss in accuracy and precision.

    60 or 70 dollars for a controller!? Ridiculous...but like a guy above said...whatever floats your boat. It just seems a bit excessive thats all. I don't know how much the sixaxis whatever costs but I'd probably stick with that.

    Just because you assumed something and realized you were jumping the gun, its therefore misleading?

    No, its not misleading. You guys just assumed wrong, and its not good to assume.

    If you find a box in the middle of the road, do you assume its empty? or that its full of dead puppies? Well if you assume anything then shame on you. You should open the box and find out. Just like in this thread, open it up and find out before thinking "duh i was tricked dee dee"

    Hey look, its everyones favorite STD ridden taco.

    Someones looking to troll today arnt we?? So far you have done pretty good at trolling the PS3 section, you flaming fan boy you.

    Examples are used because some of you cant seem to understand jack shiz.
    If you say the subject is misleading, then you are a dumbtard who needs to wonder why you found it misleading.

    You only attack my examples because you know they hit the mark, thats why your pretty good at attacking the person instead.

    Well....The fun thing is is seeing whether or not curiosity about whether I'm truthful or lieing would get to you :p

    Anyways, back on topic. The controller looks pretty cool, but you KNOW that would take a LOT of getting use to, but then again, so does the Wii remote, since it's different. I'm just glad everybody is thinking outside of the box on their controllers now, making personalized for different genre gamers.
