Default PS3 mouse

I've seen these before and saw they had good reviews. What I wanted to know is first hand info from anyone here who has used one.

I NEEEEED a mouse to play FPS.

Do not get one. They are garbage. I got one some time ago and they suck horribly. The buttons on the mouse are utter garbage and barely work. You have to mash down so freaking hard to get them to shoot.

You might want to look into the "FRAGnStein" or whatever. Supposed to be similar but I haven't heard terrible things about it, either. I am personally not ready to buy one yet because I got burned on the FragFX. But if the buttons on it are actually usable I would definitely get it.

Thanks for the heads up Hunt. I did check into the Fragnsteing. I think I'll get one.

Awesome. Tell me what you think of it so I can decide if I should get one also lol. Just be sure to update the firmware though.

Problem with all those is that they still do not work like normal mouse in PC games.
There are still all the limitations from gamepad, like maxium turn rate and so on.

What's the price point on those things? I have seen one before (can't remember the name) that sells for the 360 for over $200. Rumor has it a lot of the well known console gamers and console gamers in online cash prize tournaments use them. Pretty cheap if you ask me.
