Gears of War 3 will be out soon, and there's something you need to start thinking about: your poor thumbs. You're going to be mashing, pushing, and pulling your control sticks through a lot of battles, and you'll need all the traction you can get to make sure you don't accidentally steer Marcus Fenix into a waiting horde of Lambent Locust. That's where KontrolFreek steps in with their new FPS Freek Epic edition.
We included KontrolFreek FPS Freek editions in our Gadget Pr0n roundup from last year, because they actually add a lot to the gaming experience.Especially if you're a first person, or in this case third person, shooter fan. They brought these by the office recently, where I got to try them out. The ridged edges grab your thumb nicely, and the concave design feels incredibly comfortable under the pad of your opposable digit. Plus the cog design with the inner skull will make the Cole Train proud.
These will be out on September 13 for $13.99, giving you a week to ready up for Gears of War 3. Read the rest of the specs after the break.
