Can an $89 replica gun controller be better for Call of Duty than a pad?

Probably not, but someone's made one anyway.

Can an $89 replica gun controller really make you better at Call of Duty than a traditional pad?

Yes says David Kotkin, whose Delta Six invention hits shops early next year (not sure about UK shops yet).

The Delta Six has a built-in accelerometer so you tilt to aim. There doesn't appear to be any kind of sensor bar to track where you're pointing, which looks a bit clumsy to me.


Have its hopes been Delta blow?

There's recoil, plus pressure switches you can activate with your cheek. You can mimic the removing and reloading of magazines to restock ammo, too.

"This wins against a reg controller even with and Avenger adapter on it!" David Kotkin, who also invented the Avenger controller, commented.

"We're more excited about Delta Six than any other project to date. The Wii and the Move tried but could not make a fun and innovative motion control for FPS games. So we had to.

"This is fun for adults, not for gamers younger than 21," he added.

Delta Six can also be reassembled to mimic sub-machine guns and sniper rifles as well.
