The MAG II Is The Motion Sensing, Gun Shaped Controller That Will Put You On The Front Line
Living room soldiers everywhere: pay attention. The gun shaped controller you have been waiting for is finally here. All Interactive Entertainment have just announced the MAG II, and it will launch on November 13th for a cool $150.
The MAG II is compatible with both the PS3 and the PC. The gun will sense movement via “Gyroscopic and Motion Sensing Induction Movement Tracking.” Yikes, that’s a mouthful, but in layman’s terms that basically translates into an accelerometer and gyroscope, just like every other motion sensing controller on the market. The MAG II will also allow users to download onboard software and firmware directly from All Interactive Entertainment’s website. All you need to do is connect the controller to your computer via the USB port and you will have access to button mapping for various games.
If you are ready to step up to the front line and make your virtual soldier sessions a little more realistic, you may want to grab a MAG II. You can pre-order it from both Amazon and GameStop.
