PostSubject: (PS3)*FragFX v.2- Mouse/PS3 Control w/ Wii Capabilities*   Thu Feb 26, 2009 11:55 am




FragFX v.2 for the Playstation 3
-
The FragFX v.2 features a separate right hand mouse controller and
detachable left hand grip controller, ideal for experiencing the
traditional PC mouse and keyboard style game play of shooter games in a
console environment.





  • v.2: Improved optical mouse
  • v.2: Improved Frag button
  • v.2: Improved mouse sensitivity
  • v.2: Improved motion sensitivity
  • v.2: Improved mouse buttons
  • v.2: Improved d-pad
  • v.2: Improved games support


  • The right hand mouse controller has the complete set of PS3
    controller buttons. The mouse is used during game play to shoot, look
    left, right, up and down for that same PC style game play experience on
    thePlayStation 3.
  • The mouse is optimized for navigation within the recently announced PlayStation Home virtual world.
  • A menu mode on the mouse allows it to double as a regular mouse
    during menu selections. A lap mouse pad and left hand grip cradle is
    included with the FragFX to allow for comfortable play in a living room
    setting.
  • The left hand re-programmable grip (nicknamed the "FragChuck" by
    G4TV) has the full range of 6-axis motion control providing Wii-like
    motion sensitivity for the PlayStation 3. In games like Resistance:
    Fall of Man, to reload a weapon or to rifle butt an opponent, the user
    can swing the FragChuck.
  • The FragChuck also offers a game speed dial and frag button. When
    the frag button is pressed it slows the mouse down to incremental
    movement for smooth sniper shots. The speed dial allows for instant
    fast or slow overall game play. These two additional features let the
    user get out of battles as fast as they get into them.


Release for this new version is March 10:
Can be pre-ordered for $79.99 @ http://www.gogamer.com/FragFX-v-2-Controller-for-PS3-PS3-Accessories_stcVVproductId61793430VVcatId473192VVviewprod.htm

Every button from the mouse to control can be set how ever you like via computer usb slot and the firmware can be updated as well. The reviews are for v1 but this is v2 with a lot of fixes and tweaks to mouse sensitivity etc.. listed in post. I've got one on pre-order from gogamer.com

I've been looking at this thing too, I'll be interested to know what you think when you get it. I wonder why GoGamer.com is the only site listing it currently. I check Amazon for the page every so often, it's not there, still only V1. $80 seems kind of steep too. Bah, I'll probably order it blind anyway. ......aaand I just did. People seem to be saying the worst thing about v.1 was the mouse pad, might need a replacement for this then too.

And damn you JeWBaG for making ChAos it's own f*ing PS3 theme, now I feel even more like shit. lol!

v2 isn't suppose to be released until 03/10, thats why its not anywhere else im guessing. As far as the mouse pad goes im going to be using my pc mouse pad since I play PS3 threw my pc monitor (22" 1080P Wide Screen) so not really a concern of mine but can see how it would be to others. I need to post a pic of my setup on here. My pc desk consists of so much shit right now. I have a Huge ATX Tower PC Case, Monitor, 2 Sets of Speakers (One for PC:3, One For PS3:5 and 1 Bass), a Linksys Router, a Cable Modem and a DSL Modem lol. The ammount of wires is crazy looking.

That theme was something I was testing and havent told anyone on here about yet lol. Loose lips sink ships bro lol....jk. I had to see what the images were going to look like on my PS3 and the only way I could download it on the PS3 was from there. Ive got some changes to make before its done but Im feeln it. Used clan SR'z button layout to test my background image real quick. BTW what do you think of it ATM?

It looks good, I'm a bit jealous. That fire certainly doesn't look like crap.

My PS3 is hooked up to a crappy little 19" Magnavox HDTV. I have a 24" iMac that would probably be better to play on, but googling that just gave me headaches. There are articles about another PS3 mouse controller around, here: mLani MoBi.

Found a quote about the release date : “Retail meetings are now underway for the scheduled roll-out in the third week of May.”

Looks like the fragFX and MoBi are made by former partners now competing. I'm trying to figure out this XIM stuff ... more confused now. Now I don't know if I should cancel that fragFX v.2.

I like the fact that the MoBi can be used on the pc but I am not a fan of anything wireless. Also this is there first version and most likely will have bugs etc as the FragFX is tested and being improved upon, also like that I will be able to flick my wrist and chop someone in the head with a nade lol or stab em in the neck etc. I think the best bet would be the FragFX depending on the price and if your willing to take more of a chance on actual performance ofcourse.

It's up for pre-order on Amazon now: fragFX v.2. Is GoGamer a reputable site? I've never heard or ordered from them before I'm thinking maybe I should cancel and reorder from Amazon.

I read reviews on gogamer.com and they were like 75% good 25% bad lol. If it's on Amazon now I would order from there as long as your card hasn't been charged yet as thats a pain in the ass.

None of them are pc gamers so the PS3 controls feel natural to them im guessing. If you come from pc games and try to use a control your hands are like wtf am i doing lol. I Felt like a fumbling idiot Sad

Well I've come back to gaming after a few years not playing anything, but I remember I played all the early shooters on a PC with a mouse and keyboard. I played some of the N64 shooters but the controller there still only had one stick (were the shoulder buttons strafe then? I don't remember) so BFBC is the first shooter I have learned to play with two sticks.

I keep getting killed in situations where I have 3 or 4 people scouted, I kill one or two only to have the others kill me. It's so f*ing frustrating when you have the jump on a group and can't take them all out because it's so f*ing hard to shift with the sticks 3 or 4 times for headshots in a tight space. This would be a situation where grenades are a no go for whatever reason. I'm hoping this fragFX will cut down the amount of spray and pray I do in that situation. I almost never use recon maybe this will change that. It's obvious that lining up a mouse cursor over a target/s is way more precise than dragging the crosshairs around with sticks, overshooting your mark would be greatly reduced, I figured most gamers would see that. (especially in ChAos) Doesn't alignment become much easier?

I cancelled my order with GoGamer since I couldn't log into the site to check my order. (sent them an angry letter) Reordered it from Amazon ... I think the hardest thing to relearn will probably be the face buttons on the side of the mouse, dunno how that will turn out. That and the fact that I'm not playing at a computer desk so what the hell am I going to do about a mouse pad, the thing says it comes with a lap pad of some sort, but that Amazon video review on v.1 says it's crap.

Personally im just so used to using the controller that it would be a hard transition for me to try to switch to a mouse now. Some might like it better but its just not for me.

I'm going to have to get used to it too, but I thought it was pretty well settled that a mouse is way more accurate than controller sticks.

Well I have this thing pre-ordered but I've been thinking it might only be good for sniping. I'm picturing having to pick the mouse up for more room a couple times for spec or demo, and not liking what I'm thinking.

Sounds like your thinking too much lol. Get a cheap big mouse pad or if you have a wooden desk just use it on that. If your trying to use it on your lap you prob wont like it

This thing arrived today, haven't tried it out though, probably gonna have to change some furniture here first, and put my HDTV on my desk next to my iMac. What I can say is that all the buttons are top notch .... punchy crispy goodness.

Also the Amazon box it came in is HUGE. I thought they must have sent me the wrong order, but nope just a huge box.

Sold your PS3?? I wanted to add you ... What about ChAos? Oh, 'Stongarm owner' ... does that mean you're a big PC MMO guy? Busy with Warcraft or something like that?

I mucked about with it on single player on BFBC, but still too new to me to tell much. My experimenting last night got cut short by an invite. It works just by plugging it in, no set up, although there are 5 different modes and some customizations you can do. The stick on the left hand nunchuk is almost identical to the DS3 stick, even in texture so that's pretty cool. L3 is pushing it in, just the same. I love the position of the face buttons on the side of the mouse, they work well and feel natural ... maybe even better than the DS3. It feels a bit better rocking your thumb to hit them ....... hitting jump then knife feels better on the fragFX than on the DS3 for example. The face buttons (and all the buttons) have better punchier feedback overall than the DS3. And overall the mouse part seems much better than the nunchuk part, but there's nothing horrid about it.

Things urking me a little so far:

I would prefer to have the d-pad and stick positions swapped. I wish the nunchuk was basically identical to the left side of the DS3. The frag button (dunno what that is yet) on the nunchuk is also seemingly in a bad spot right above the L1 and L2 shoulder buttons which seems like a bunch of mishaps waiting to happen. (but maybe not when I figure out what the frag button is) The plastic the whole thing is made of seems a little thin too, but not a deal breaker, I'm a little worried about it falling though. I'll use it a bunch and post some gameplay details. (maybe be a bit more concise too lol)


BTW in case you didn't see it anywhere, BFBC2 has been confirmed for PC this time around.

lol nah no world of warcraft for me i hate that type of shit, all first person shooters here, cod5 atm i just like the sig and my name in Vietcong use to be Strongarm/I.B. Ju-Daddy lol. The frag button is suppose to slow the sensitivity of the mouse for sniping if I remember right. Dont forget you can reprogram all the buttons via the pc to your liking if need be. Good Luck

Not until they move to pc I guess lol! . I guess it would be possible to start like a pc division considering we've already got a teamspeak server/3 custom maps that people love in cod5 etc but I still wouldent be playing with the actual ChAos so kind of a waste of time lol.
