When I look at the Splitfish FragFX Shark controller, I don't even know what to think. There's a mouse with Xbox buttons on the side, a nunchuk-esque 'thingy' that looks like a controller chopped in half and it's all supposed to come together to give a PC feel to games on the 360.
I guess! In the it's-so-crazy-it-might-work line of ideas, it could very well be the bridge between PC gaming (with a mouse) and console gaming (with a controller) that gamers have long looked for. The FragFX Shark has been available for the PS3 but now that it's finally out on the console king of FPS games, I might actually use it this time around.
Splitfish, the company behind it, bills the FragFX Shark 360 as the "world's first super precision mouse hybrid gaming controller for Xbox 360". On the mouse, there's the XYAB of the 360 controller located right near your thumb. On the nunchuk, there's a d-pad, analogue stick and trigger buttons. The whole setup works wirelessly via the USB dongle. The FragFX Shark 360 is suppose to be customisable, lag-free (it uses 2.4GHz wireless) and last 50 hours on two AA batteries. Works with Xbox 360, PC and Mac. The PS3 version cost $US90, but pricing for the 360 version has yet to be announced. [SplitFish]
