Quite an advanced gadget this Gamercore controller, since it integrates three of the basic devices regularly used while gaming on a PC: keyboard, mouse and joystick. iGUGU, the company behind it, makes a very good point when talking about the PC as being one of the most versatile gaming platforms out there but, which suffers a lot when it comes to the actual gameplay
. This way, PC gamers are always limited to the W, A, S, D keys and Razer gaming mice.
The Gamercore is the perfect solution for stepping away from the computer's small monitor and onto the large screen TV, with a control unit that will not only provide mobility while gaming on the PC, but also an enhanced experience. Or so they say. Actually, they boast a 3.5D gaming experience, thanks to some 6 accelerometers, which will allow you to play anything from racing on the ground to flying in the skies .
"With the extensive processing, memory and storage characteristics of even the most basic computer systems, the PC is truly the most powerful videogame console available on the market today, but until now computer gaming has been limited to relatively small desktop or laptop screens. With iGUGU Gamecore, gamers can have the best of both worlds with the ability to enjoy their PC-based games on a large screen television in the home theater. With our wireless controller, the experience is further enhanced because not only can gamers search for and access games stored on their computer or on the Internet, but they play these games using intuitive body motions to add a new level of realism," said Isaac Calderon, president of iGUGU.
What I see is a wireless 2.4 Ghz controller
, which comes with its very own VGA-based cable adapter for the large screen TV and wireless USB dongle. It is being showcased at E3 Expo 2010 and according to your choosing, the iGUGU Mid range or the Long Range (more expensive), you'll enjoy more freedom. The starting price is of $89 and expect it to be available soon
