Splitfish Reveals FRAGFX Shark Controller For Xbox 360

Xbox 360 gamers have had relatively little choice when it comes to control methods. There's the official controller, a few joysticks, and a handful of third-party controllers that usually weren't up to snuff with Microsoft's own. But this is something radically different. Not quite "Kinect radical," but as far as controllers go, this is pretty wild. Splitfish has made a name for themselves in the peripheral market for producing rather unorthodox items, and the "Holy Grail of FPS Controllers" is definitely no different. The company's latest is the FRAGFX Shark for Xbox 360. This same device has already been outed for PS3 and PC, but coming to Xbox 360 gives MS gamers the same spoils.

It's a hybrid control setup that brings the ultimate combination of mouse aiming and analog stick movement to the Xbox 360. The key features are below, but it's pretty clear from the images what's possible here. It'll ship at the end of August for an undisclosed amount, but hardcore 360 gamers are likely to bend over backwards in order to get one.
