G-Mate’s Mag Gun Xbox 360, PS3 controller wins FCC approval
It’s hard not to love first person shooters, but controlling a shooter with a typical controller isn’t very realistic. That’s why G-Mate designed the Mag Gun, pictured above. The Mag Gun enables users to actually aim and shoot the gun like they would with a real weapon. Additionally, the Mag Gun has a series of configurable keys, joysticks and pads that can be used to duplicate the functionality of keys on the Xbox 360 or PS3 controllers.
For example, the analog stick on the Mag Gun’s front grip controls strafing and forward/back movements. There are also a series of buttons on the gun’s back grip. Since all of these buttons are customizable, the Mag Gun can work with most shooters on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC platforms.
Check out the videos below to see the Mag Gun in action. We’re not sure when the device will be released, or how much it will cost, but G-Mate passed the device through the FCC today, suggesting that a release date will be coming soon.
