Back at the 2010 CES, I was able to spend some time with the folks from SplitFish and Dennis Dozier taking a look at the Dual SFX Evolution for the PS3. At Gamescon, SplitFish is introducing three new FragFX controllers including the eco-friendly FragFX Shark
for the PlayStation 3, PC and Mac. The other two controllers are the FragFX Piranha
and The FragFX Barracuda
. While SplitFish hasn’t released too many details on these PS3 controllers, they are touting them as offering different levels of innovation to your controller lineup. My interpretation is that they will probably have some, but not all of the features of the flagship FragFX controller to make them more cost-effective.
As for the FragFX Shark, SplitFish incorporated power conserving technology in order it make it greener. The biggest advancement is that it only requires a single AA battery in each piece to generate 50+ hours of game play and/or 500 + hours on standby. Not bad for someone that wants to get into their game and not worry about dead controllers.

Pros Versus Joes, Part Zwei
Teflon Hearts Team Leader and former #1 C.O.D. global leaderboard champ Dennis Dozier (zDD) will be taking on all challengers at Gamescom 2010 again. Dozier will be trying to extend his tradeshow perfect record after another undefeated performance at E3 2010 using the SPLITFISH FragFx for PS3™.
"I love being able to use a MOUSE for FPS on any platform," commented Dozier. "Demonstrating SPLITFISH's intelligent, high performance gear for playing FPS on game consoles versus standard type controllers, gives me an opportunity to show why mouse gaming on a console for me is hands down no brainer. The FRAGFX SHARK is the new standard for what console FPS gaming should be.
