"Avenger" Xbox 360 Controller Available For Shipping, Testosterone Pump Sold Seperately

If you want to turn yourself into a marauding FPS supersoldier, but find yourself bogged down by the limitations of your Xbox controller, N-Control has come up with a contraption that you might like: a sort of exoskeleton that aims to being comfort and efficiency to the sometimes cumbersome design of stock controllers. Gone is the frantic ballet of thumbs leaping from button to button, as the Avenger aims to streamline play with a few simple and effective augmentations.

The device features adjustable straps linked to the shoulder buttons for rapid firing, and a series of levers are mapped to each of the face buttons. The goal is to keep the thumbs on the analog sticks at all times -- buttons being controlled entirely by the user's fingers -- as well as offering customizable positions for each lever to suit each player's particular style of play. Boasting the ability for gamers to "access up to nine functions simultaneously," the Avenger hopes to give players the ethically-dubious advantage of superior hardware. While not technically cheating, it treads dangerously close to the brink by putting those adversaries of the "petty commoner" persuasion at an immediate disadvantage. If you're the sort that is not bothered by this, you can order it for $39.99 plus shipping. And don't worry PS3 owners; the site states that a DualShock version is coming.

Behold, the Avenger.

I have no idea what's going on there and from looking at the pictures, I want no part in it.

That thing is hideous. Since I don't play online, and in fact let my Xbox Live Gold expire, I see no need for my to own this... thing.

Given that I refuse to play FPS games with anything but mouse/keyboard (the way god intended it), I'll pass as well. Interesting concept but I'd much rather have a m/k controller for 360 that's worth a damn so I can play Halo: Reach sometime...

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
