Paradox gamepad adds trackball speed to PC, PS2 games

Paradox PS2 Gamepad

Reflex has recently previewed the Paradox, a gamepad for those devoted to first-person games and other fast-action titles. Its signature change from Sony's reference Dual Shock controller is the replacement of the right analog stick with a trackball; Reflex claims the control scheme offers finer-grained and faster input for games where the stick would normally be used for aiming or viewing.

While patterned after the PlayStation 2's gamepad, the Paradox can either connect to the console or to a PC through USB for gamers who prefer controllers other than mice. Hooking the controller up to a PS2 still allows a USB mouse for extra tasks, Reflex adds. Pre-order are being accepted at $27 with its official price set at $45 for the official debut later this year. [via Uncrate]
