Default Game controller for MC3 out soon

Well, not sure if anyone has posted this yet, but there is a modern combat 3 controller AND stand (which makes it look more like a TV). Looks pretty awesome, but not quite sure if I like the look of the controller. Retailed at $79.99 available at apple store on October 5th, amazon and Target.

Mouse + keyboard > Touch controls > Controller

From best to worse FPS controllers.

Just my opinion.

Hey, this isn't just for mc3, but a lot of other games plus upcoming ones. I think I might look into getting one actually. Hmmm. Just wish the controller looked more comfortable to hold. And $80? I'll wait for a price drop or get it used.

They sent me one of these, the price point seems insane.

Is the controller comfortable to hold? Do you think it's worth it?

looks like a nonstarter...

I would buy it for about half the current price though. I might buy it from target and play with it for a few days and return it just to test it out lol.

It says it plays exclusively with gameloft. Does that mean it will never work with other games? I want to play minecraft, bastion, real racing 2-3, galaxy on fire, black ops zombies...

I would replace mouse+keyboard with trackball+keyboard (specifically the original Logitech Trqckman Marball, which I don't believe is produced anymore), but I know I'm in the minority. Same accuracy, greater speed, no wrist fatigue.
