As many of you FreekNation loyalists already know, last night we officially released the FPS Freek CQC Signature Series. We are very excited to get this great attachment on your controller, but first, I wanted to take a few minutes to explain some of the benefits and reasoning behind the new CQC Signature.
Since the very beginning, customer feedback has been our number one source of determining the products that we bring to market. Without you, we’d probably still be working on developing time travel mouse pads or adamantium implants for domestic pets—so, we thank you for all of your input and direction over the years. FPS Freek CQC Signature was developed just for you!
Some people have small hands—not freakishly small or anything—just small. Female gamers and 13 year-old boys, for example, have smaller hands than NBA players do, generally. So it makes sense that there should be an FPS Freek that’s more accessible for people with different sized hands.
FPS Freek CQC Signature isn’t only for those with smaller hands, though. Testing has shown that our current FPS Freeks have a slight adjustment period that varies from person to person. That period is almost nonexistent with the lower rise of the CQC, making it a great “in-between” FPS Freek. Moving to the FPS Freek from the CQC is again less dramatic, causing adjustment periods to go away almost completely.
Using the CQC alone brings your thumbs back closer to the controller’s face buttons without sacrificing precision control. This creates a more natural feel while also adding an insane level of grip and comfort over stock Xbox 360 or PS3 thumbsticks. Trust me when I tell you that you will leave the CQC Signatures attached to your thumbsticks all the time, no matter what game you’re playing. They are that good!
We’ve also reformulated our rubber compound for the new CQC. It’s softer, more comfortable and best of all, gives you more grip and less slippage during gameplay. The pad’s geometry is different too. We’ve found that with the ongoing battle between convex and concave it’s really difficult to make everybody happy. With CQC Signature’s unique convex/concave design, we think we’ve really hit on something that everyone will love. Plus, it’s green!
Another great reason to try a set of FPS Freek CQC Signature is that they are fantastic when mixed and matched with other FPS Freek products. Use a single CQC on your left or right thumbstick in-step with your favorite FPS Freek on the opposite stick and discover a custom combination of deadly accuracy that’s just right for you. Try out some different combinations and be sure to tell us about your favorite on Twitter.
Honestly, no matter how you play, CQC Signature is another great FPS Freek you’ll be glad to have in your arsenal. Read the official press release here. Buy FPS Freek CQC Signature Now
Lately I’ve been reading a ton of stories from top video game industry execs and other knowledgeable people predicting the end of consoles as we know them. According to many experts, this next generation of consoles by Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony will be the last.
The basis for this prediction is that mobile gaming, Smart TV’s and streaming services like Gaikai will give consumers more options for getting their video game fixes more conveniently and for less money. I can clearly see the reason for the fear. As the streaming game services improve and integrate themselves with televisions that land in our living rooms; and as Android and Apple devices connect seamlessly to that same TV, where does the console fit in?
If you think about it, we have already seen what the Smartphone has done to dedicated devices like GPS’s, MP3 players, cameras and even wristwatches. Why wouldn’t gaming consoles suffer the same fate?
What do you think? Do you think the end is near? Or do you think that consoles will remain fixtures beneath our TV sets? Tell me what you think via Twitter.
According to a contract unsealed earlier this week as part of the ongoing court battle between Activision and former Infinity Ward employees, a new IP code-named ‘Destiny’ is slotted to see light in 2013.
Little is known about Destiny except for that it’s a series of “sci-fantasy, action shooter games” that will initially release exclusively on the successor to Microsoft’s Xbox 360, referred to as the “Xbox 720” within the contract. If you’d like to see the full story or even review the entire unsealed contract, visit the Los Angeles Times.
Recently Microsoft announced a 4GB Xbox 360 console with Kinect bundle for $99—a shockingly low price that’s sure to turn some heads. But, is it a good deal?
On the surface, a $99 price tag seems too good to be true. I mean really… a console with Kinect for $99? That’s less expensive than a PS3, Wii or even any handheld device out there. Count me in!
But, as you know—if something sounds too good to be true it usually is—and that’s the case here if you don’t know what you’re getting yourself into.
If you’re a smart consumer who pays attention to things, you’ve probably already noticed the asterisk (*) next to the $99 price. This indicates something. In this case it indicates a required 2 year contract to Xbox Live Gold at $15/month. Ouch.
So let’s do the math:
A new 4GB Xbox 360 with Kinect bundle costs about $300. Add 2 years ($50/year) of XBL Gold and you’re up to $400.
With this new bundle you start with a $100 for the console and then add $15 each month for 2 years (24 months). That gives you a grand total of $460.
Honestly, it’s not a bad deal as long as you realize what the total cost ends up being after your contract is up. Knowing that, what do you think? Do you find that a $99 + $15/month subscription model is easier to swallow than $300 + $50 + $50? Let me know what you think via Twitter.
