Coming to a First Person Shooter Game Near You: Mag II Magneton Induction Gun

I’m no gamer. Never have been and don’t wanna be. But this seems cool. I think.

“Plastic gun controllers aren’t for everyone. They’re tiring to hold up over long stretches of gaming. All Interactive Entertainment’s MAG II is a space marine shaped gun that shrinks offers a near 1:1 FPS experience with any existing game. Shooter games designed for the Wii Remote and PlayStation Move controller require the Wii Sensor Bar or PlayStation Eye because that’s how the controllers are tracked. The MAG II has no sensor bar. There’s a USB dongle that plugs into an Xbox 360, PS3 or PC USB port and the gun controller which has a built-in gyroscope for motion tracking. That’s it. It’s super simple to set up.”

    You know what’s weird;I got better at playing Black Ops after shooting regularly.I played COD on and off before I owned actual firearms, but the first time I jumped into the game after going to the range two things happened which struck me as unusual.

    One, I ditched the scoped guns for an iron sight M4 and kicked arse.
    Two ,I was staring at the front sight in the video game like I did on the range and was dropping folks left and right as a result. It was kinda uncanny.

      Thank you for writing that. These games are now something for me to consider.

    I’ve never understood the attraction of video games or Facebook. I have a feeling that one or both will become irrelevant within five years.

    Sniper Elite V2. Setting is the collapse of Berlin at the end of WW2, awesome graphics. Check out some YouTube videos of it.

    Real gamers would never use something like that due to the how slow & imprecise aiming & movement are. Stuff like that is for children & filthy casuals (the metaphorical unwashed masses of the gaming community).
