Revolution pad for PS2?

Nunchaku design copied for PS2 controller
[09/01/2006 11:55]

PS2 will be getting its own version of the Revolution controller thanks to US third party peripheral maker Splitfish, who has paid 'homage' to Nintendo's nunchaku design with its DualFX controller.

Described as the world's first 'L-Type' controller, the DualFX has two parts to it the left-hand part has an analogue controller and a D-Pad, while the right-hand portion has the action buttons, a trigger, looks more like a gun and has a Laser Guidance Navigation System.

The laser guidance tracks movement in the right-hand controller and allows gamers to actively aim in FPSs like you would do in lightgun games.

While the DualFX lacks the minimalist class of the Revolution controller, the split design and the layout of the buttons has clearly been influenced by Nintendo's design.

The DualFX controller will be released in the US in March and will cost $60 (around 34). Unfortunately there's no news on a possible UK release as of yet

hmm... what kind of mutated thumb do you need to comfortably reach that d-pad? also, seems both the original and the clone controller are only "aimed" at right-handed people, yeah, thanks.

I can't see why the revocontroller wouldn't work just as great with lefthanded people as it does with righthanded.

yeah, seriously. as a left handed person, i agree. it's the first controller that ISN'T aimed just at right handed people.

as far as this ps2 thing goes, i doubt there will be many, if any, games that take advantage of it. and considering the r&d time on this thing, i'm sure it will be a piece of crap anyway.

Don't worry, they're going to release a 'special' left handed version.

Here's a prototype:

How do you figure? The gun part is specifically for the right hand. As a left handed person, there's no way I could use that accurately.

Oops, that's my bad. I'm talking about the DualFX controller, not Nintendo's. I misread jbo's comment.

I don't exactly understand. I'm left handed but I use a regular controller like everyone else does. Are you guys buying special left handed controllers that are reversed or something?

some of you may rememeber that bold prediction i made in a previous topic. I think we may well be closer to that day than we think, I realise sony really didnt design this pad though.

talk about a gimic.

Hori released a PS2 controler in japan that you can "Rip appart" into two parts that makes it exactly like this. Although with the Hori one, at least you have the option of conecting them back into one singuler controler.

My fear is that ignorant people are going to purchase this thinking its going to be how the Nintendo Revolution is going to control. And ultimatly get dissapointed and not want to even glance at what the revolution can do.

yes i can see something similar happening, its. Cool though, allot of nintendos games will be created around this new paradigm, but this twin fx or whatever is built to run existing games so there may be a difference there.
