    Can't see the RA3 transitioning to the new peripheral that well as the control scheme is generally poor in the first place - maybe try Halo Wars ?

    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    How does this compare to other products like the XFPS Sniper?

    I tried that with a mouse and keyboard, but there was a significant lag between pressing any button and seeing the results on screen. After several evenings fighting to get it to work well I gave up with it and just used the controller.

    Incidentally that also required a wired controller to get past the controller authentication, but then allowed for a wider range of peripherals to be plugged into it (incl PS2 controllers)

    You'd be right - but really the problem was/is that the mouse ends up being the rotate device rather than the pan device. I don't know if I can swap 'sticks' effectively via the config software to correct this though. I've got SupCom2 demo to try as well when i get a mo.

    Let me know if this works a lot better than the XFPS units. Last time I tried one of them although you could use the mouse and keyboard, the mouse movements were pretty much as jerky as the thumb sticks were. I just went back to the pad in the end as there was no difference.

    Like everyone else I think this sounds great but am totally curious to how it will work with FPS's. I like the configuration idea with the PC and it looks quite well done, just think £60 is abit rich for me when I can use controllers just fine

    Cheers for the advise, I been looking for something like this for a long time. Lot of money wasted on products that were basically cr4p. This is awesome, well worth the money spent.
    I actually enjoy FPS now an micro movements is a snipers dream.
    Cheers again.

    Got mine from TiocStore.Com also, next day delivery. Cheers Guys
