Third-party gaming controllers are always a mixed bag, ranging from terrific, like the popular Logitech Cordless Action PS2 controllers, to decidedly weird, like the SplitFish EdgeFX
, to head-scratchingly awful, like this Pelican / Nerf
abomination. Mad Catz
has never been afraid to spew out products all over the bottom half of this spectrum, and the recently-released PS3 Wireless Thumbpad is no exception. Looking for all the world like it was designed by someone who has never attempted to actually hold a SIXAXIS, the QWERTY thumbpad clips on to your controller ... at the top
. While we're not sure how you're supposed to use this thing, we are
almost 100% confident that no one at Mad Catz looked at a picture of the Xbox 360 QWERTY thumb keyboard
before sketching this one out.
