Ages ago I wrote an FPS Freek review on my main blog. It’s a small extender that makes the stick on your controller longer, and supposedly easier to use. I thought I should share it here too with a link.
Short summary: don’t bother buying them. I wish MS would allow the use of keyboard and mouse on the Xbox 360!

I’m pretty sure Hutch did a dual commentary with someone and they were discussing this. They loved it, but as you say – at $10 it’s not much of a punt, but for us in UK/Eire we just get shafted on price on everything. Anyhoo, for the PS3 there’s the Frag FX2 – http://www.crunchgear.com/2009/04/20/review-splitfish-fragfx-v2-controller/ – I won’t be rushing out to buy one, but it looks interesting.
That’s a pricey bit of kit, although if I was looking for a gaming mouse on a PC I’d probably almost pay that much.
Except for one review, everyone raved about the FPS Freeks. I don’t know if it’s because they were afraid to look stupid for wasting $10 on a piece of plastic and rubber, or if it was a sophisticated marketing campaign.
That said, I still have it on my controller but I play at a sensitivity of 3, fairly low, and each time I try to increase it my games really suffer.
Seems like SeaNanners not only read your mind, but also made a video about it:
That’s very interesting and seems fair but when you have an affiliate code, a review can’t be completely objective. I honestly don’t think those things will make a huge difference to your gameplay. I seem to be a lone voice on the subject though!
