EdgeFX PlayStation 2 Mouse
Peripheral designer SplitFish today announced that its EdgeFX gaming mouse is reaching stores. First-person shooters and similar action games are best controlled with a mouse, according to the company; the EdgeFX gives this option to PlayStation 2 owners without trading away the gamepad buttons that most games depend upon. The mouse itself includes the four face buttons from Sony's original Dual Shock controller and uses typical mouse buttons. A secondary left-hand controller contains the left-side analog and directional pads needed for movement. Force feedback and all the other controls games expect are included, SplitFish says. The EdgeFX can be found now at GameStop for $70. Xbox and PlayStation 3 editions are promised for next year.
