Use a keyboard to play games on your PS3

Pre CES season means lots of "announcement of announcements" planned for the huge event at the beginning of the year. Video games, being very much a consumer electronic, are not immune to the pre-noucement phenomenon. To that end Penguin United has announced that they will be announcing a unique adapter for the PlayStation 3 console, called Eagle-Eye, which will convert any USB keyboard and mouse into a "turbo charged controller". Suggested retail price for the Eagle-Eye is $49.99, though many gamers can't put a price tag on playing Killzone 2 with their preferred control interface.


PENGUIN UNITED ANNOUNCES EAGLE-EYE CONVERTER

FOR SONY PS3 AT CES

 

Converts Keyboard and Mouse into Turbo Controller for First-Person Shooter Video Games

 

Fremont, Calif., (December, 2009) - Ask most video game fanatics and they'll tell you that first-person shooters just play better using a keyboard and mouse. That's why Penguin United has created the Eagle-Eye Converter in order to meet this specific need. The Eagle-Eye is an adapter that converts any standard USB HID keyboard and mouse into a turbo charged controller for the Sony PS3 video game console. The Eagle-Eye Converter will be on display at CES January 7-10, at Booth #5413, North Hall.

 

The Eagle-Eye Converter provides a customized key mapping feature for all PS3 controller buttons that seamlessly transfers the command data to your keyboard and mouse. Now first-person shooter games like Call of Duty; Modern Warfare, Killzone 2, and BioShock can be played with greater dexterity, speed and accuracy than with a standard controller.

 

"One of the drawbacks with playing first-person shooters is the lack of speed and accuracy offered by traditional controllers," stated Richard Huang, President of Penguin United. "We found a simple solution by bypassing the controller and transferring the button features directly to the computer keyboard. The Eagle-Eye offers an amazing alternative for fans of shooting games."

 

Product Highlights:

 

·         Customized Key Mapping Feature Transfers Command Data to Keyboard and Mouse

·         Same Data Transfer Rate as Original PS3 Controller for Greater Dexterity

·         Optional Turbo Mode for R1, R2, L1, L2 and the 4 Primary Action Buttons

·         Supports 2 USB Ports for Standard HID Keyboard and Mouse

·         Provides Turbo Function for Standard PS3 Controller when Not Using Keyboard/Mouse

·         SRP: $49.99

·         On Display at CES Booth #5413, North Hall
