Apparently these little badboys will help you improve your game in FPS by giving your thumbsticks more movement.

Anyone got them?

Ahh, I have these on my Xbox 360 controller.
They are comfortable as hell ! I think it does help with your game.
I noticed when I'm playing FPS, my aim seemed more precise.
Also, if you put up your sensitivity, I noticed that you won't lose as much control.
I think it's worth getting if you want to up your game in FPS.
I recommend it Smile

I want to try those out, but is it worth the 9.99 US? Hmmm...Decisions, decisions..

I'm not sure. I was just at Walmart yesterday and didn't see anything.
I'll check BestBuy this week though. I'll probably buy one just to try them out.

I just googled those and it looks like it makes the joystick higher lol.
I read that it helps you improve though. I dont mind trying these out.

I just bought one at my local Target today for my 360 controller.
I just tested them out a few hours ago, and I would have to say that it takes some time to get used to. It is very comfortable though. After a couple games of MW2, I started getting used to it. I actually like it, and will be keeping it on my controller.
I'm going to put my sensitivity up more to see if that will improve my game as well.

somewhat related, but have you guys seen the ps3 trigger extenders? Not sure what they are called, but im wondering if anyone is using them. They seem more reasonable to me then buying one of those hacked controllers or making one myself, as im not that invested into mw2.

Anybody able to find this in Canada? I did a little online searching and couldn't really find anything in Canada. I have a bit of a problem with my thumbs cramping (big hands). So this might not only help my game, but make thing more comfortable.

If I can't find anything, then I might just order online. That $9.99 price + shipping and conversion, shouldn't be much more than $14 CDN.

$14 CDN is kinda steep to pay for 2 pieces of plastic.... lol

Group buy?

Price drops to 8.99 for 2 or more and shipping doesn't increase that much... bored at work so I looked at the shipping for multiple:

1 = $2.98 Price per unit = $12.97
2 = $3.50 Price per unit = $10.74
3 = $3.50 Price per unit = $10.16
4 = $4.54 Price per unit = $10.13
5 = $5.06 Price per unit = $10.00
6 = $5.06 Price per unit = $9.83

Factoring in currency exchange will add roughly a buck to each price. Potentially getting dinged at the border might be a deal killer though.

i tried it for the xbox and it does make it easier for your aiming and gameplay
it feels like you have slight better control then using the normal controller,
the downside is i play with tactical controls and if your willing to take a extra .5
seconds i wouldnt want to buy this. i had a harder time switxhing secondary, jumping,
and reloading. it might just be me but it felt like i was missing the buttons more

Well... I just bought these! I figure I'll give them a try. I think at the very least it'll help with the thumb cramps. I always felt the PS3 controller was too small for my hands.

Online... $10 + $3 shipping.


Edit: Actually I got two... my friend wanted one. Shipping for one is $3 and shipping for two is $3.50. So it was roughly $11.75 each + exchange rate.

i think the easiest controller mod you can make is the pelican trigger extenders. They are about $5 and are great for l2/r2 games like fps and racing. I have three pairs now on all my controllers because its hard to go back to playing without them.

im ok, i just like it because i can play on super high sensitivity with m/kb. Like in battlefield or hl2 i can turn around so much faster but in cod joystick isnt as accurate.
