Product Description

With the look of an assault rifle and lightweight construction for ease of use, this accessory allows gamers to get down on the floor in full sniper pose and wreak havoc in their favorite first-person shooter games, including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and Call of Duty: World at War, and all other shooter games. Designed with modern warfare in mind, the Assault Rifle's trigger functions as the R1 button for realistic "reaction" game-play. Each OEM Sony PlayStation controller button is represented on the Assault Rifle, including the D-pad, PS button, start and select buttons, and clickable thumb sticks for strafing, running, steadying the weapon, and exploring the game environment. Gamers can pull the trigger with one hand and press the controller buttons with the other to shoot enemy combatants and move through the gaming environment. The Rifle comes with a removable scope and stock. The Assault Rifle also features a built-in speaker with realistic sound effects that can be turned on and off for a fun game play experience. By pulling the trigger, the Rifle emits single shot, three-shot burst, and fully automatic sound effects to complement the on-screen action that can be activated even when the Rifle isn't synced with the PlayStation 3. Setting up the Rifle is as easy as pushing a button. Gamers simply plug in the USB dongle key to their PlayStation 3 units and then press the home button on the Rifle for wireless synchronization. Four LED lights display controller port selection. The Rifle is powered with two AA batteries and has an on/off switch to conserve power. Each package includes the Assault Rifle controller, USB dongle key, scope, and stock.

Man, this thing sucks! Its so light and flimsy that it feels like it will fall apart any minute. I thought maybe the aiming point on screen would move with the gun but noooooo you still have to move it with the thumb button just like a PS3 controller. You end up just holding the gun still while you play. Instead of just a quadrail with buttons they should have mounted a foregrip to it and put the buttons on that instead. It wouldn't be so awkward.
The sound effects just rot and need to be left off and the scope is totally useless. You cant even look through it.
Complete waste of money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of Money.... August 12, 2010
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This would be far more successful in my eye's if you could somehow move the gun for the right analog. Sadly, there is an analog on the gun which truely destroys the whole experience. Also, the sounds on the gun sounds similar to what you'd hear on a cheap $1 gun. Also, this gun doesn't work with the default controls in some games, such as Medal of Honor Airborne, Brother's in Arms: Hells highway and other shooters that use the R2 button to shoot.

This is a cheap toy gun with a built in PS3 controller. It has no special capabilities and does not function particularly well. I was lead to believe that it actually does something other than disguise a controller as a gun. Great idea but very poor execution.

Don't waste your money on this Toy Video Gun. It's just a BIG Controller. I was under the impression that I could just point and shoot, NOT the case. The Gun is a nice concept, but really useless. Not too mention that it does not work with ALL games. It only works with FPS games. I gave mine away after a week to my Seven year old nephew.

Hi,

Thanks for taking the time out to comment.

Yes, as mentioned in the video and ad copy, the rifle itself cannot point and shoot (unless you get the Move enabled version of it). The controls of a typical PS3 dualshock controller are mapped out on the gun. So, the left analog (which is typically used for walking around) is also placed on the rifle, along with the D-pad and all other controls. The R1 button which is mostly used for shooting is linked to the rifle's trigger.

You see the games itself need to support motion tracking in order for you to point-and-shoot the way that you're suggesting. COD does not offer motion-tracking in that sense (e.g. it is not compatible with Move), hence it cannot be played with a Move-enabled rifle either. However, if you want to play KillZone3 or some of the other Move titles, then we have another version of this Assault Rifle (look up PSM-SRGM on Amazon) that you might want to try.

I'm somewhat surprised that you rated it so low, despite the clear spec/feature details of the product in the text and videos.

This was a complete waste of money! I thought it would be like playing duckhunt for nintendo but its not. Its just an over sized PS3 controller that looks like a toy gun. I wish I had bought this in a store so that I could have returned it.

As this was a "new" on the market, there was not that much information on it.

I'll know better next time. It is an alternative controller that's about it. Not comfortable to play with it now sits in a corner gathering dust. And I gained wisdom not to be the first on the block to try anything new out. I'll wait until someone else has to learn the lesson I just did. The controller might be great for "twitchers" but you'll wear out your thumb quickly. Response time is slow and the "controller" will require some learning curve to be effective.

Other than being "had", I'm sure someone out there will enjoy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better Luck Next Time August 25, 2010
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Could've done better. As mentioned, you aim with the analogs. To me the left one is out of place, kinda hard to sprint or hold your breath for the sniper rifle w/out having to lift your fingers off the buttons on the right, or accidentally pressing them. Can't look through the scope because of the plastic inside of it. It is nice to pull a trigger and have the buttons on the right of the rail though. It also vibrates when you shoot. As mentioned in the description it is lightweight, seems to be made of a hollow, but sturdy plastic. However, if it was 5 lbs, hours of holding it would make it seem heavy. Takes a while getting used to, and if you're like me, and you know you're not gonna pick it up again and play with it online (MW2), return it and get your money back. Should only be $25, if that.

Hey Ray,

Thanks for your note. I'm surprised to hear you say that about the quality of the product itself. You see, we've been heavily testing this product since it was launched -- even large scale use at gaming expos -- and have not yet had any issues with the quality of the material itself.

The scope -- as mentioned in the ad copy and elsewhere -- is for cosmetic/aesthetic purposes only. I'm sorry if you were mislead to believe otherwise.

We hope to connect with you further to discuss product concepts, ideas and feedback. Please look us up on Facebook to chat.

Take care.
