Saitek Cyborg Fps Gamepad Offers Custom Left Controls

 |  |  |  |  |  |  July 18, 2007

Here’s an interesting new gaming controller design from Saitek. The new Cyborg PP26 Rumble Gamepad controller lets you swap the positions of the left analog sitck and digital joypad.

This seems like a great idea, since it seems the position of those controls is a highly individual preference. It’s especially handy if you’re used to playing on a particular console, and want to have the same feel when you’re playing on your PC. There’s also a nifty “reduced sensitivity” mode that lets you temporarily aim more precisely when targeting. The controller will retail for around $35 when it’s released later this year.

I’m hoping Saitek eventually releases a wireless version for use with the Xbox 360 and PS3 too, but I’m not holding my breath.
