The Novint Falcon: The Novint Falcon lets you control a game in three dimensions, and also lets you feel high-fidelity three-dimensional force feedback. The Falcon controller moves right and left, forwards and backwards, like a mouse, but also moves up and down. When you hold the Falcon’s detachable Grip and move your cursor to interact with a virtual object, environment, or character, motors in the device turn on and are updated approximately 1000 times a second, letting you feel texture, shape, weight, dimension, and dynamics. The Falcon lets you control and interact with games in more realistic way, allowing you to develop real physical skill and muscle memory, adding a new dimension to gaming.

Anybody wanna try this? A little pricey at $149 but that's already discounted @50% with loads of games included.

im sure having to keep your hand suspended and fingers in that position can only mean fast path to RSI!

I dont know it has got great reviews from alot of sites who have actually tried it...
I would have thought about ordering it if they would sell it in EU

Ive paid more for gear that only works with one game like guitar hero world tour
