Delta Six Game Controller for Call of Duty Black Ops II

By - Source: Engadget | B 23 comments

When a regular controller just won't do it for you.

For those of us that take FPS gaming to the extreme and enjoy hours of CoD or BF3, the creator of the Avenge Elite controller, David Kotkin has teamed up with David B. Johnson, military consultant for Spike's Gametrailers, to create the Delta Six controller.

The Delta Six has a built-in accelerometer, which means it can be used with any game and distance and calibration is not a factor in playing. According to Kotkin, the targeting system is faster and requires less effort, with only minor adjustments being necessary to aim accurately. Another unique feature of the Delta Six is that it converts from an assault rifle to a Sub Machine Gun thanks to a removable barrel and collapsible stock. Reverse the steps and extend the barrel and you have a sniper rifle. Essentially, you're purchasing three guns in one, which means it's up to you which weapon you feel like using for each gaming session.

Other functions of the controller include real kick back upon firing and pressure switches. For example, aiming can be activated by the pressure from your cheek hitting the stock, or, in non-realistic mode, just press the side of the gun. Other tasks will be activated by performing real life events like hitting the magazine eject switch, or removing the magazine and replacing it to reload. According to testing performed by Kotkin, it's easier and faster to use than a standard controller.

With real time aiming, enhanced optics on the scope and having the controls at your fingertips, David Kotkin says, "This wins against a reg controller, even with and Avenger adapter on it!." He added, "We're more excited about Delta Six than any other project to date. The Wii, and the Move tried but could not make a fun and innovative motion control for FPS games. So we had to." says Kotkin. "This is fun for adults, not for gamers younger than 21."

There's no word on availability of the controller but the price is expected to be $89.00 at launch.

    Or, you know, you could just use a Xim3 with a mouse and keyboard and get way better reaction times, precise aiming, and intuitive controls that will work with almost any game.

    Just sayin.

    Illegal in Canada for replicating a weapon far too closely.

    I'm sure that'll happen. In Canada if you have a black banana in your hands you'll be taken down by a Swat team.

    Breaking news : A 12 year old boy was shot down by police officers who initially raided the house due to suspicion of Marijuana growth. It was later reported the boy's father grew the plant in the basement. The reason for the shooting was due to a replica controller that the boy was using to play a video game.

    Could be fun, but the button position on the grip is no good. Especially for a lefty.

    I would get tired of holding a gun for hours. It might be fun for 20 minutes or so.

    I'm confused. How are you supposed to use the thumbstick. Its in a horrible position if you have to use your thumb. Thats if it is the thing above the red button. You'll be using the side of your thumb for that.

    These guns look great - but they use last gen Wii technology. The guns from i-zone-3 used to use that old technology but have since progressed to ultra accurate and lightning fast laser tracking technology.

    If you play an FPS game with the latency exhibited in these guns against a regular keyboard and mouse player you will most likely LOOSE.

    On the otherhand, if you play using an i-zone-3 rifle, the software WAS DESIGNED to BEAT keyboard and mouse players - so special attention was paid to lightning fast response time as well as a DIRECT POINT and SHOOT mode that works in ANY game - thats something that a keyboard and mouse player CANNOT do...
