X Scorch

'X Scorch' for Xbox 360 gets in on the split controller craze



With PlayStation Move  (and, let's not forget, the Splitfish lineup), the PS3 is taking part in the dual-controller wizardry that Wii owners have been enjoying for years -- a layout designed to allow free arm movement, but functionally allows us to play games without having to expend the effort to lift our arms from our sides to rest our hands in our laps. Now Xbox 360 owners will be able to get in on the slack-armed fun -- and utilize mouse control in their first-person shooters while they're at it -- with Bannco's "X Scorch" controller, an Xbox-based version of another two-handed PS3 setup, the "FragNStein."

The X Scorch, which is cross-compatible with PC, combines a custom mouse with a wireless Nunchuk-esque controller that features a D-pad, an analog stick and some trigger buttons. According to Bannco, the device is upgradeable via firmware updates and has "digital sniper buttons," which certainly sounds impressive. The X Scorch retails for $79.99.

I will stick to my 360 pads for the xbox and PC. I cant concentrate on more than one controller
Can't wait for Shenmue 3



I hate jokes that rely on visual imagery.

I've had it right up to here with them.

Hmmm i know a couple of hardcore pc gamers which will love this, but personally I'm with Tara, no seriously I'm sat in her in living room  :)

Years of playing with a gamepad I would never get used to that, I find the wii hard sometimes  :P

The movement from a mouse is far faster than a controller, Expect to be shot down quick by any one using these.

I go out of my way to use my 360 controller to play PC games.

This is definitely not a product for me.   :P
