SplitFish FragFX brings PC-style control to PS3 games

SplitFish FragFX

Console gadget maker SplitFish today aimed at gamers making the transition from PCs to the PlayStation 3 with its freshly announced FragFX game controller. The USB-based controller splits up the traditional gamepad design into a mouse and wand combination. A mouse on the right-hand side helps with aiming in first-person shooters such as Resistance and has the familiar PlayStation buttons on its side for those games that require them. Switchable sensitivity lets it dial down movement speed for precise movement.

In turn, the left-hand wand covers the directional pad and analog stick controls that the mouse can't address itself. It also duplicates the tilt action of the original SIXAXIS controller, SplitFish says, responding to movement as well as tilting. The USB version of the FragFX will be ready in April for $60 and should be accompanied by a $70 Bluetooth version later in the year.
