Gaming is a huge industry and with people lining up at midnight for popular titles like Call of Duty it’s no wonder that the market for accessories and controllers is huge here at CES in Las Vegas. G-Mate have on show their Mag II controller which is ideal for the lover of first person shooter games.
Held against the shoulder the gun requires two-handed operation. Your right hand can control the trigger and secondary fire buttons, while your left hand can reach forward to the front of the gun where there is a joystick controller for movement through the game.
With an on-board gyroscope combined with motion sensors in a small unit that plugs into your console or PC, the gaming experience is pretty darn fantastic.
The playing experience is excellent, and after a short period of familiarisation you’ll be immersed into your regular game but with that added level of accuracy over what you’re doing.
To make matters more exciting, the MAG II retails for $150 in the US, at EB Games in Australia you’ll find it for less than $120.
At that price, it’s a must have for any first person shooter players.
