Love your PlayStation 3, but prefer Microsoft’s controller layout? You’ve got options, the latest being Gioteck’s GC-2 PS3 gamepad. Adopting the Xbox 360 controller layout, the GC-2 appears to do an admirable job of repositioning your thumbs, but its appeal lies in how much you’ll have to twiddle those digits. Hidden among the controller’s bevy of commonplace features (wireless connectivity, a turbo button and force feedback) is a thumbstick sensitivity toggle — allowing gamers to switch between four different levels pressure sensitivity. Hardly revolutionary, but it’s nice to know there are options when in-game settings don’t cut it. PlayStation 3 owners can pick up the GC-2 now for $40, and Gioteck says a Wii U variant will be available in April. See the full press release for yourself after the break.
