The Avenger – CES 2011 Engadget Video Review


N-Control, Inc. releases the Avenger, a state-of-the-art gaming accessory for the Microsoft® X-BOX™ controller. The Avenger accelerates the user’s reaction time and provides gamers with advanced rapid-fire capabilities. On November 9th, Activision® will release their highly-anticipated title, Call of Duty®: Black Ops.™ Gamers will be looking for a tactical advantage, and the Avenger is poised to provide the upper hand. The Avenger is an external enclosure that tightly grips the exterior surface of the original X-BOX controller to enhance gameplay. This accessory provides an intuitive user-interface, geared to improve the gamer’s accuracy and reaction-time. “It enhances the user’s speed and manual dexterity,” says David Kotkin, lead designer of the Avenger. “This sophisticated accessory is specially engineered and constructed for those who want to push their gaming abilities to new heights.” The Avenger promises rapid, fluid movements between individual buttons and analogue sticks, allowing gamers to access nine functions simultaneously. The attachment comes equipped with high-precision tension straps, hand triggers, and sensitivity adjusters, which can be fine-tuned like a musical instrument.

  2. Zareste says:

    @Wofaze might be true. I wouldn’t dump money on this gadget, but dual-sticks do have their uses.

  3. Wofaze says:

    @Zareste
    I bet that’s not the case with driving games, dual stick shooters and platformers etc.

    @Zareste no

  9. ChaosPunksXe says:

    This thing fucking sucks. Every one of those fucking arms broke on mine and it just feels so unnatural. The “controller stand” is so impractical as you would much rather hold the controller tightly so that you have the best maneuverability. Don’t waste your money guys, this thing is a rip off. Just get a PC.

  18. MrMojo112 says:

    Looks like you would have to reteach yourself how to use a controller. That’s 20 years of gaming to break…sounds more like work than fun. Pass.

  19. EskiLdn says:
