Razer Onza Xbox 360 controllers

Posted in Controllers by Conner Flynn on January 9th, 2011

Razer has announced its new generation of Xbox 360 gaming controllers. The Razer Onza Tournament Edition controllers are all about taking gaming precision to a new level. The Onza Xbox 360 controllers are aimed at the hardcore gamers, as it allows them to customize their resistance level with adjustable resistance analog sticks.

They can be adjusted loose for quick turning and tight, for more precise pointing. The backlit shoulder buttons allow you to map other controls, while face buttons allow for a response time like a quick mouse click. Gamers are already drooling over these.

New PS3 accessories add a Joystick, use of Xbox 360 controllers

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on December 21st, 2008

New PS3 accessories add a Joystick, use of Xbox 360 controllersThere aren’t many arcade-style joysticks available for the PS3, probably because there aren’t many fighting games on the console. That are worth playing anyway. Despite this, the XCM Dominator is headed our way. No price or availability just yet.

Another addition is this strange XCM Cross Battle Adapter hub. It lets PS3 owners synch up their wired Xbox 360 controllers and play games using them. It will cost you $40. This might be a little more useful since it’s a better controller, but won’t you be plagued by mapping issues? Hell if I know.

Red & green limited edition Xbox 360 controllers
Microsoft is dropping some limited edition green and red Xbox 360 controllers at the end of September, priced at $64 each. The red one comes with black accents and even comes with a bundled Play & Charge with red battery pack.

If red and green seem like odd color choices, I agree. Red and green says Christmas to me. I guess they would be an ideal pair for playing a Christmas Eve game of Halo with some holly adorning your controllers and a bunch of new games under the tree.

HG custom modded Xbox 360 controllers
HG Controllers want you to have an edge in your gaming. They’re selling custom modded Xbox 360 controllers that feature duplicate buttons on the underside. The extra buttons can be pressed by the same fingers that hold the controller. That should give you at least a split second advantage over your opponents who are still using a regular Xbox 360 controller. Timing is everything, after all.

The buttons can come in a variety of combinations that will compliment different games better. If you’re a Halo 3 fan, you can get the 4-Button modded controller for $89.99. Or you can just settle for a 2-Button version at only$69.99.

Scene It! for Xbox 360 has big button controllers

Scene It! for Xbox 360 features big button controllers

The first thing you’ll notice is that these controllers look like some sort of cartoon thermometers or maybe some weird electronic Candyland Game accessory. These big buttoned Xbox 360 controllers are strange to say the least. They come bundled with the new Scene It! game.

The big buttons are colored the same as the standard four buttons from the Xbox 360 controllers, just vertically aligned below the big button. The large button is for that game show moment when you slam the button and submit the right answer, cuing loud music and confetti raining down on you. It also has the Xbox gem and a “Start” and “Back” button on each controller. You get all 4 controllers with the $60 game.

Posted in gaming accessories by Conner Flynn on June 5th, 2011

Looking for some Batman inspired controllers to accompany your Batman Arkham Asylum game? These Batman: Arkham City batarang controllers are for the Xbox 360 and PS3 controllers and feature bat-start and select / back buttons, dual rumble motors, comfort-soft grips, and seven switchable versions of LED color.

The PlayStation 3 version has an internal battery, detachable charging cable, and batman-themed USB RF receiver. The Xbox version is wired and not as cool. They will be on display next week at E3 and will hit store shelves when Batman: Arkham City ships in October.

Netflix for Xbox 360 gets Kinect support

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on April 14th, 2011

Kinect owners now have the ability to sort through their videos without using a controller. After you download the 43Mb update all you have to do is wave your hand for the camera or say Xbox and it will pull up the new menu above, which auto sorts selections for browsing by voice or gesture what it thinks you want to watch next. Pretty neat. Who needs controllers?

Select “browse all” and you are back to the standard menu. You can also pause the movie during playback by saying Xbox, Pause (or FF, rewind, skip scene, etc.). That will come in very handy. What do you think?

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on March 21st, 2011

The Xbox 360 is about six-years old. The PlayStation 3 and Wii almost the same age. Microsoft and Sony had said that their current consoles will have 10-year life cycle and it looks like they were pretty on target. A Wii 2 is even expected this year to compete with the 360 and PS3′s Kinect and PlayStation Move motion controllers.

Now we have word that Square Enix, makers of Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest to name a few, are already planning to open a 100 staff studio in Canada next year. This way they will be ready for the next generation consoles and get their games out accordingly.

GAEMS Xbox 360 traveling case gets a price and release date

Posted in gaming accessories by Conner Flynn on February 20th, 2011

The last version of the GAEMS console-carrying case was pretty basic. It was neat, don’t get us wrong, but it was basically just a lunch box shaped suitcase for your console. Those of you who carry your Xbox 360 with you on the road will appreciate the company’s new case design.

It now supports both the fat and slim versions of the 360, not discriminating at all and it will even carry the PS3 Slim. There is now enough room to store the console, controllers and power brick. This new case also comes bundled with a remote, HDMI cable and power supply to power the speakers and LED screen.

Best Buy slashes prices on old Xbox 360 special edition bundles

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on August 1st, 2010

The new Xbox 360 is much quieter and more efficient, but there are still reasons to buy the old model. Like the fact that Best Buy is kicking off August by lowering the prices for the Splinter Cell: Conviction and Final Fantasy XIII previous-gen Xbox 360 bundles.

For only $299 (That’s $50 off the current price) you get the game title, a 250GB HDD, and two wireless controllers. You better hurry. Not sure how long it will last.

Grip-It covers for your game controllers

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on July 14th, 2010

Not sure why you would need these Grip-it covers for your Xbox 360 or the PS3, unless you have some sort of sweaty hand disease. I’ve had hands so sweaty that I couldn’t grip the analog stick on the PS3 controller. Ever. And I play plenty of games.

But if you do need to get a grip, these Grip-it analog covers are now available for both PS3 and Xbox controllers. Each pack comes with four covers. Like condoms for your loving controller partner. So you can cover the analog sticks on two controllers for $4.99.

Call of Duty: Black Ops MadCatz controllers

Posted in Controllers by Conner Flynn on July 14th, 2010

It’s time for the next Call of Duty. Just like last year, Mad Catz is producing a bunch of licensed Black Ops peripherals for the Wii, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC to go along with the game. Above is the 360 controller, which features precision aiming, which is just a lowering of the analog sticks’ sensitivity when you want more precision.

You can toggle it by using the “combat” buttons on the controller’s back. The price should be just under $50 for the console pads and $100 for a Cyborg Rat PC mouse which comes with a 2GB USB dog tag.

Nyko announces two new Raven PS3 controllers

Posted in Nyko by Conner Flynn on July 1st, 2010

I don’t think I’ve ever seen an uglier PS3 controller. Nyko is describing the feel of these controllers as “silky”. Even if that’s true, it’s like pouring perfume on a pig. The line includes a standard PS3 configuration as well as an Xbox 360 inspired “alternate” layout that flips the position of the left analog stick and d-pad for a more ergonomic feel, despite it’s looks.

Both connect wirelessly to your system via a USB dongle, and will cost $35 later this summer.
