Splitfish, a company which aims to bring PC-gaming-like controls to Playstation 3 owners, is launching a new precision mouse controller for the console at Gamescom 2010.
The FragFx Shark promises PS3 owners the pressure sensitive control of a analog stick in place of keyboard combined with precision aiming of a mouse.
The 'Shark' boasts a variety of innovations such as power conserving technology meaning it requires only a single AA battery in the split fragchuck and mouse. It promises over 50 hours of gaming time and over 500 hours on standby.
On hand to take on all challengers at Gamescom 2010 will be pro gamer and international Call of Duty champ Dennis Dozier (zDD).
Also on display at the event will be the FragFx Evolution Wireless - a programmable motion controller.
The Evo should 'give players an edge when playing sports, driving and casual game content' and a 'unique two-handed game experience with FIFA 10'.
Jason Johnson, head of development at Splitfish said: “Sony had an excellent showing of new releases this year with the PlayStation 3, and we’ve developed an extended line of 2010 products that complement the PS3 console and bring a variety of periphery choices to enhance the PS3 gaming experience overall.
"The controllers have some surprisingly excellent capabilities; such as dual platform compliance, full PC support and extremely low power consumption. We are excited to be showing these for the first time at Gamescom 2010.”
