    Next time you do one of these reviews could you please show the software? I would've liked to see how exactly you configure it. And a quick look of the device in action would be great too. Aside from that, good job getting some eyes on these products.

    I own it for the PS3, and it's only so-so. It's not going to make a terrible player the MVP, yet it will increase face button reaction time for the average user. The mouse emulation is too floaty to claim game-breaking precision, so this device should really only be considered for people that can't grasp controller aiming / acceleration, and want mouse aiming.

    It becomes an annoyance calibrating the thing for each game you play, and typically isn't worth investing the time to fine tune it, unless you're spending months on a particular game. The best feature by far is the macro tool, which lets you program a string of controller commands, and bind it to a single key, which comes in handy in games where you repeat the same task over and over (ie. selling/deleting/moving items and confirming action)

    Just a note, this thing will not work with all keyboard and mice, link to compatibility list: http://www.penguinunited.com/? page_id=92

    And I'd suggest a XIM3 over this thing for the 360.

    Things like that shouldn't even be allowed, especially when considering console FPS's since it would give a pretty huge advantage over a majority of controller users.

    I don't even care about competitive play, or even FPS's for that matter, but I still feel it offers an unfair advantage on what should be one of the fairest and most level playing fields - consoles.

    ei; everyone is using the exact same controller and everything else works/runs the exact same (or atleast *should* be). Whereas PC there are a lot more things to consider that can make the better player, like machine performance, better mice, custom setups, etc.

    That is exactly what these sort of devices are doing, creating an unbalance similar to what is seen on PC.
