Avenger Elite Controller External Adapter - PlayStation 3
Delicate, but high performance
The only reviews on this site so far complain about this item breaking. Well yeah, yank on it enough and it will. The Avenger is not meant for little kids, or brutal treatment. If your the kind of person who breaks controllers or can't have anything glass in your house then don't bother getting this. However, if your the type of gamer who wants fast button presses and smaller movements to press those buttons, this is for you. FPS players will see a real difference in their gameplay, and almost all multiplayer games that require any sort of reaction time (so pretty much all of them) will appreciate the Avenger. While it can handle some rough handling while attached to the controller, don't think that this is some sort of tank of a product.
On a side note, if you do get this item, READ AND WATCH EVERYTHING YOU CAN FIND ON IT FIRST. There are some small things that are very important that are not well explained on the included instructions, like how to move the arms so they don't break off. (I didn't follow this advice, but some super-glue fixed my small problem, and I've had no further issues.)
Drop price then I might buy it way to much for it not wroth the price......"............................
ok ok ok
if people want to pay alot of money for something that go's on to your controller go for it. besides i did not say its not good i seen it work on a video. that don't make it worth the 50 buck
Good idea, bad execution
I read the reviews and watched the videos. I thought the idea was fantastic. I had already though of adding buttons at my fingers by modifying the controller. This would prevent me from doing that. The item showed up today and I quickly opened it up and installed it. Quickly I realize that the arms are not in a good position for me. The box contains SEVERAL warnings about bending the arms. This left me unable to adjust them. Additionally my right index finger is unable to reach R1 without tripping the arm above it. Finger to fat? The item felt a little loose on the controller but I felt it something I would get used to. The arms are a little flimsy compared to the way they rave about how precise the design is. I almost expected some nifty metal gadgetry but it is all plastic with some metal screws. I have nothing against plastic if it is made to work properly. Send it back to the drawing board. The idea is sound, it just lacks proper execution. I would have given it a 1 for Overall Rating but I feel the designer is on to something so I game them a little buff for the concept. Save your money unless you can hold one in your hand before you buy. I'm sending this one back opened but unused.
The most inovative controller accessory!
This is one great product. It works extremely well, and increases your reaction time dramatically. If you play such games as Call of Duty, this item is a must have!!!
Waste of money.
This stupid thing broke not even 5 minutes out of the box. How can something that costs 50 bucks do that!?
This promises to be the best Avenger yet. Perfect for getting the most out of Halo 4. I guess I'll have to wait for Halo 4 to come out before I know for sure but the Avenger product line hasn't disappointed me yet.
Do you want faster reaction time to gain a step up on the competition? Then this is the product for you. Sure it may look like something out of an alien movie. But that's what makes it work. The product is super easy to put on your existing controller. Patience is key with this product, you won't get used to it overnight. So make sure to allow for some transition time. Once you get used to it, you won't play multiplayer without it. Great for playing Cod or Halo games.
Simply The Best - P E R I O D !
Simply The Best - P E R I O D ! My Scores have more than doubled since I've been using the Avenger !!!!
This really helps
So my friend told me about this adapter for my PS3 controller that will help me be faster. At first I didn't believe him and he let me try his out. At first I'll be honest it was an adjustment but after using for a day or two it was much easier and I say how much better i got. I highly recommend this for everybody that likes to play shooter games and wants to be faster and better.
