PRIMAX, manufacturer and supplier of computer peripherals, has launched two new game controllers. The two innovative products are the Raptor 3D gamestick and the Conqueror Pro gamepad.

The most striking thing about both products is their cutting-edge design. The ergonomic grip allows users to spend hours comfortably playing their favourite computer games, with maximum playability being achieved through the choice of buttons.

The Raptor 3D's autolock firing buttons and 3D, 40-rotation angle grip, make it the perfect tool for carrying out dangerous missions. The gamestick has four autolock firing buttons on the grip, four standard ones on the base, an adjustable throttle and a 360 revolving hat switch1, which allows the user to look around selected games in four directions (up, down, left and right).

The four-way view and rotation option helps make all games incredibly responsive. The rotation angle of the handle provides a broad forward view and enables the user to move the game in any direction. In driving or flying games speed can be controlled by the stick’s adjustable throttle controls. In addition to this, the accompanying GameSuite 98 software offers a legion of programming possibilities.

1 The hat switch is a button on top of the gamestick operated by the user's thumb.

For each of the Raptor 3D's firing buttons, a corresponding turbo button can be programmed. To activate the turbo button the user simply presses once, and a light then indicates that it is working.

The Conqueror Pro gamepad unique shape means it fits comfortably in the hand for optimal performance and is also conveniently lightweight. The gamepad has ten programmable firing buttons with a rubber feel and a hat switch for optimal surround view in four directions. For easier control, the eight-way direction pad has attachable mini-sticks, which act as miniature joysticks.

In short, precision control means nothing stands in the way of victory. It's simply a question of shoot or be shot!

Both game controllers are available from Maplin, Tempo and Dixons Stores Group. The Raptor 3D gamestick costs £29.99 and the Conqueror Pro costs £14.99 including VAT.
