Shint Plastic Guns: AIE Announces MAG II Gun Controller

All Interactive Entertainment is releasing what they’re billing as the FPS-friendly MAG II gun controller on November 13th, just in time for the release of Black Ops II.

From the looks of the hardware, it appears to be a full-fledged controller and not a controller housing like the PlayStation Move Sharpshooter. Instead, AIE’s controller is set to offer full support for current and past FPS releases for the PC and PS3. The MAG II tracks motion with a gyroscope, meaning there’s no need for a camera or sensor bar and it will allow firmware updates and mods on the PC.

The form factor looks sleek, but I’m curious how well gripping and using button inputs in the lower half and stock will work.

The MAG II is available for preorder via Amazon and Gamestop.
