lovely device. as usual, however, there is no alternative model for left-handed players. so these means i'm either going to be using my old and reliable ambidextrous Saitek Cyborg (there really is no available combination stick and throttle controls for southpaws anywhere that i've found), or using my Razer Naga and Logitech G13. while that might mean a sacrifice in immersion, the mouse will likely lead to much greater precision the way the control scheme separates the torso reticule and the independent hardpoints on the mech's arms. it will be interesting to see how that Artemis stick can reconcile that particular game mechanic.

This looks much sexier than the Razor controller:

I'm partial to the Razer, looks more solid I think. The big iPad like screen on there fits in well with the whole MWO theme.

I hate the idea of the razer...i hate razer products. I would have preferred a logitech one, but that one that Warrender has posted....now THAT has some promise.

Razer have some nice concepts, but that's it. I've owned a few pieces of their gear, and every single one was a flimsy piece of **** that broke down way too quickly. Cheaper Logitech gear has lasted me several times longer with the same treatment.

If I do ever upgrade from the basig logitech joystick I have now, it will be for something like this: X52 Pro Flight System - Fully Integrated Stick and Throttle Flight Controller | Saitek.com

Everyone has their own history, mine with razer is pretty bad.

Considering I started playing these games with nothing but a keyboard, just having the mouse\kb combo is enough for me.
