is not a new Die Antwoord
song, but rather a videogame accessory company that specializes in making thumbstick nubs designed to help those of us who like playing first person shooters but suck at them. Apparently, the simple raising of the thumbsticks is supposed to make fast and accurate aiming easier.
Today, they have announced the new FPS Freek CQC Signature Series
. This new line uses a "unique hybrid convex/concave design" made out of a super-grippy material that's been laser-etched (because lasers are rad) KontrolFreek
The thumbstick nubs (I don't know what else to call them) fit both Xbox 360 and PS3 controllers, but are said to also fit many third party controllers as well. They're actually very affordable at only $10.99 and can be found at KontrolFreek.com
Amazon and in Microsoft stores everywhere.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
KontrolFreek Launches Signature Series Line of Performance Gaming Gear
August 22, 2012 – ATLANTA
FPS Freek CQC Signature Series gives gamers increased accuracy, control and comfort
– KontrolFreek, creators of the popular FPS Freek®, Speed Freek™ and other performance gaming accessories, today introduced the FPS Freek CQC Signature Series
– the first in a planned line of Signature Series
“The original FPS Freek CQC has come of age, and to celebrate, the CQC is the first product in our Signature Series,” said Ashish Mistry, President and CEO of KontrolFreek. “Inspired by the pros, the FPS Freek CQC Signature Series was designed for gamers who demand the ultimate balance of speed and control in their gameplay.”
The FPS Freek CQC Signature Series
incorporates a unique hybrid convex/concave design, newly formulated grip material as well as a laser-etched emblem in KontrolFreek’s signature green color. It’s a perfect accompaniment for close quarters combat in titles like Halo, Battlefield, Call of Duty, Gears of War and more. The FPS Freek CQC Signature Series fits both Sony PlayStation3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 controllers, but will also fit many third-party versions. It retails for $10.99 and is available now from KontrolFreek, Amazon and in Microsoft stores nationwide.
The original FPS FREEK CQC (Close Quarters Combat) debuted in 2011 and has quickly become a must-have controller accessory for gamers who like to get up close and personal with the enemy in First Person Shooter (FPS) games. The lower height of the FPS Freek CQC increases accuracy and provides an unprecedented level of control without sacrificing speed.
Gamers love the FPS Freek CQC Signature Series because it’s perfect for smaller hands and the left analog (character movement) stick due to its lower height (1/4 inch shorter than the FPS Freek Classic). They also report that the newly formulated rubber surface and grooved design provide even more grip and comfort.
"I really LIKE THIS the MOST! CQC is where it's at. The new layout gives me more grip...,” said celebrity pro gamer Kelly “Mrs. Violence” Kelley.
"The CQC Signature Edition is amazing! They give ultimate grip and control for FPS gaming. … Simply impressive!" said Squishy from Active Respawn.
