We here at Lazygamer have always had a soft spot for some of the more ludicrous and pointless peripherals you’ll find for consoles (and PC!). Here’s just such a thing – though some enthusiastic gun nuts might just think it’s the best thing ever.
The Delta 6 is a full-size, life-like military-styled rifle for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC that its makers say will make for the most immersive shooting experience. It’s got built-in motion sensors so it knows where you’re aiming, and “replacing” the magazine reloads in-game. The thing even knows when you’re aiming down the site, to zoom in for sniping and such.
According to it’s makers, you’ll get “the realistic, immersive experience that gamers worldwide were craving — real kickback, premium materials, live-action motion sensing controls, triggered zoom, and more.” and because it’s so darned realistic, it has an orange tip so it can;t be confused with a real gun.
Still, it’s quite likely that this device will raise the ire of conservatives, who believe that videogames train children to be killers. honestly though, I really don’t like using these sorts of things for my games, preferring traditional controllers, and yes, even the keyboard and mouse. I am a lazy bastard.[Thanks to mass murderer Erwin Kempff for the orange tip]
