Gaming Mouse Works on PC and Xbox 360

For gamers who like to switch between the Xbox 360 and PC, Bannco has a gadget for you that might make the transition between the two a little easier. Called xScorch, this laser mouse and "grip" combo works with both platforms via a wireless connection, and is supposedly lag-free.

The Grip actually is a little reminiscent of Nintendo's Wii nunchuck controller in shape, offering thumbstick support in addition to a directional pad and a few more buttons. For PC gamers, this serves as a full-featured WASD controller.

"Between the Mouse and Grip, xScorch contains all the normal xBox 360 controller buttons making it ideal for that first person PC shooter game style you’re used to," the company said.

The xScorch set seems geared for the FPS gamer: use the mouse "for targeting prey" while using the Grip to move in any direction. Apparently xScorch has upgradable firmware and programmable, digital sniper buttons for all your flesh-melon-popping needs.

For PlayStation 3 owners, Bannco also offers the FRAGnStein, a similar set save for the dark tan colors and 6-axis motion control.

Both sets cost $79.99 each.

    Wouldn't this give users an advantage over those who are using dual-analog?

    soldier37Please the crapbox and the PC shouldnt even be used in the same sentence! My PC is 5 generations ahead of the crapbox. 2560 x 1600 res,Quad core at 4ghz,8gb ddr3 ram, 2 5870 dx11 cards in crossfire. Why do they even still make that outdated garbage, and idiots continue to buy them lol.


    Because its cheaper and some people don't wan to spend $1k to play a video game. Personally, I prefer PC over Xbox but Xbox isn't a terrible console and graphics wise, its not terrible for just $200.
