Secret FPS Weapon Unveiled

MonsterGecko has finally revealed its secret weapon, aimed to improve the control of our 3D FPS experience. The device is the company's first high performance gaming mouse designed and styled specifically for 3D first-person shooter games. The PistolMouse FPS offers players faster reaction speed and better precision with its realistic pistol styling, multiple anodized aluminum triggers, over-size selectable scroll wheel, ergonomic hand position, and high-resolution optical tracking.

While first-person shooter video games have been one of the hottest selling PC game categories, gamers are primarily using standard keyboards and mice to play them. For serious gamers, nothing has been a suitable replacement for this combination. The PistolMouse FPS is designed to provide 3D gamers with a unique advantage in both single-player and multi-player environments over traditional mouse designs.

Joysticks and gamepads don't provide the resolution and accuracy needed for first-person shooters, said Ain McKendrick, co-founder and CEO of MonsterGecko. The PistolMouse FPS is designed to maintain the precision of a high-resolution optical mouse, but improves on ergonomics and player reaction speed to give gamers a competitive edge.

The PistolMouse FPS includes a primary and secondary grip trigger, plus an ambidextrous selectable thumb scroll wheel for both right and left handed players. By not having to reposition fingers, the PistolMouse FPS design gives gamers instant activation of four separate controls. The unique patent-pending base design of the PistolMouse FPS incorporates an offset optical sensor for quick response with simple wrist action.

The PistolMouse FPS has a MSRP of USD 69.95 and is compatible with both PC and Macintosh computers with a USB port. The PistolMouse FPS will be available this June at U.S. retail outlets. If you wish to purchase it online now, follow the download tab above.

Actually this isn't the first time they have done something like this. I have something similar to this and though the novelty looks cool to show off to friends, in reality it sucks big time. The only difference is that mine looks like it came from men in black while theirs looks like it came from a dime store toy gun manufacturer.

LOL dave you foolWell it looks pants and I would feel a right twat using it too!Its just a touch Geeky and im still not sure how you would actually use it...do you aim it at the screen? or is it just shaped like a gun to try and look cool (which it fails at)

I'm not going to say it sucks or not by looking at it because I don't know how it's supposed to be used but...It looks stupid and I don't think it'd be very cool...I think if you pointed it at the screen and used the keyboard...Maybe but still...Seems stupid.

Apparently, it doesn't function how a light gun would (or common sense).From what I've seen, it's stuck on the base, and you are able to move the gun (right?). So the trigger would function as a primary fire, but how would secondary be performed? There's a scroll wheel for switching, but it doesn't look useful...

"QUOTE: Traditional mouse designs, including most gaming mice, place hands in a position that forces players to use weaker muscles for side-to-side movement. The PistolMouse FPS places a players hand in a more natural resting position for improved comfort and leverage by using stronger muscles for side to side movement. "How dumb r they? I think you'll find alot (if not all) of the good FPS players use keys on the keyboard for strafing, and don't move the mouse left/right to strafe ...LMAO

Maybe they should have done some actual market research to see if ANYBODY would want the damn thing. Then they wouldn't have had to go and blow all that money making it.The thing looks like a crappy joystick thats shaped like a gun.

This is VERY good, much better than using the mouse for gaming any day..Everyone should buy one NOW. Trust me, with this gun u will own all the mouse users in no time at all. Just like i have!!!! Muhahahahahaa :D

Secret FPS Weapon Unveiled

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is just a gun shaped mouse, with the trigger as mouse one and another button underneath as ms2. You don't point at the screen, you move it over a mousepad just like a mouse, the gun is mostly just for looks. Basically it's a mouse that you hold differently, and it seems you'd have more controll as your hand is in a more natural position.
