Rifle for gaming stirs up controversy
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A video game controller that is modeled after a real gun is stirring up controversy.
David Kotkin is designing a controller to replicate the look and feel of the G36 semi automatic rifle. The Delta Six Controller acts like the real gun when shot. To reload you tap the magazine and a sensor helps simulate viewing through a scope. The controller even shakes a little when you shoot to provide a realistic feeling. Some are criticizing the controller for being too realistic.
"This cannot hurt anybody. This is electronics inside of it. It's just a controller. But is it training the player to hurt somebody? Well you have a point there. Have I made it too good? Sometimes I wonder," said Kotkin.
Kotkin agrees the controller may not be for everyone, but thinks it could be the start of a new chapter for gaming.
