KontrolFreek boosts driving game performance
Earlier this month, IGN was sent a prototype controller adapter designed to improve sensitivity in driving games. Those who play racing games know that nothing beats a good wheel and pedal set up, but there are many who don't want to spend extra money on such a peripheral. Control pads, however, are far from optimal. Analogue controllers have ushered in the era of analogue steering, but making small adjustments with an analogue stick can be a pain. This typically results in oversteering and requires constant correction -- something that can really pull you out of the experience.
Enter the new adapter from KontrolFreek. The small adapter attaches directly to the left analogue stick easily. The adapter sports little wings on each side to give players extra leverage, making small adjustments easier. The adapter may look silly, but IGN claims that it actually does improve control. Head over to the KontrolFreek website for more info. You can also register to be notified when the product becomes available. So, would you stick some horns onto your controller if it gave you the edge?
