Update: Looks like mLani has just gotten official with the controller, which is now dubbed the "MoBi" and set for release in the third week of May. Still no indication of a price, but mLani did confirm that both the mouse and controller are indeed wireless, and that the mouse (2000 DPI, 500Hz) comes with its own PC software to allow for full customization. Head on past the break for the full press release.
mLani Announces "MoBi" Release Date
Edmonton, Feb. 28, 2009 -- mLani Studios, Inc (mLani) today announced the completion and impending spring 2009 release of its new wireless PS3 controller, the MoBi.
The patented split-grip mLani MoBi is compatible with all games, and features a completely customizable PS3 controller button set. With a right-hand mouse for targeting prey and a left-hand grip for full motion control, the MoBi is the most advanced controller in the world. Complete programmability, digital sniper buttons and upgradeable firmware provide unprecedented levels of customization. The MoBi is also a full featured wireless PC gaming mouse with extra buttons and left hand control for WASD, making it the world's first universal cross-platform FPS tool for PS3 and PC gaming. The MoBi is the ultimate console controller while also offering an ideal PC first-person shooter experience.
mLani listened to what gamers wanted in terms of style, grace and customization, and created a controller that is fully customizable and ideal for both console and PC gaming. Each button is configurable, and the MoBi's digital R1 and R2 make it the most accurate targeting system available--no more squishy button presses! The 2000 DPI, 500Hz refresh rate low-lag laser mouse exceeds the standards of the PS3's abilities and meets all high-end PC mouse needs. The included PC software allows users to adjust or reprogram any button to the exact feel they expect from a high-end controller.
"We are pleased we were able to embed our high-quality standards into a product that not only maximizes a gamer's experience but actually improves the gamer's score over traditional PS3 solid controllers," said Mr. Tetterington of mLani. "Re-sellers, licensors and retailers are encouraged to contact us quickly, as demand is expected to exceed all previous third-party controller sales. Retail meetings are now underway for the scheduled roll-out in the third week of May."
As promised, mLani is also finalizing its first Nintendo Wii™ product. Complete details will be released in spring 2009.
