If your gamer already has every game they want, then this holiday season maybe you should consider buying them a nice controller to help them take their hobby to the next level. Our tech junkies Blair Herter and Morgan Webb have taken a look at some of the best controllers as part of our 2011 Holiday Buyers Guide.
V3 And VX Fighting Sticks
The V3 and VX fighting sticks from Hori will be a great addition to any fighting gamer's arsenal. Both are designed to not only look great, but to provide enough stability to offer an authentic arcade experience. They're responsive, come with two turbo settings, and the Xbox version even supports voice chat.
Fighting Commander 3 Pro
The all new Fighting Commander 3 pad controller from Hori is designed to give you a leg up against your fighting game competitors. Its extremely adjustable, allowing you to change both the input range and the directional pad by up to 20 degrees. It also includes a LR button toggle switch, turbo functionality, and a slick six button layout.
Das S Professional Keyboard
The Das S Professional Keyboard is one of the best ever made. The mechanical key switches offer a lovely tactile feel and audio click unlike any other in its class. It's extremely durable, comes with two USB 2.0 hubs, and is great for both casual and hardcore PC gamers alike.
Not only does the Steelseries Diablo 3 gaming mouse look amazing with its demonic red illumination settings, it's also one of the most durable, versatile mice we've ever seen. It's ambidextrous shape and size is perfect for all PC gamers, plus it comes with seven ergonomically placed, programmable buttons. The mouse also features an Avago laser senor with up to 5700 CPI and it comes guaranteed to last for 10 million clicks (that's three times longer than the average mouse!). This thing is sexy, and perfect for any PC gamer whether or not they're interested in Diablo 3.
