Hardware designer SplitFish
will make their first appearance at the Tokyo Game Show
this year, showing off their new line of FragFX controllers for the PS3. The PS3 has gotten more high profile first person shooters than the PS2, and SplitFish's controllers are specifically designed for FPS gameplay. I'm glad third parties are stepping up--the Playstation family of controllers have never been very comfortable for FPS gaming.
