CTA may be best known for its endless array of kid-friendly Wii accessories, but it's not forgetting about the grown-up gamers out there -- or, at least, grown-ups who enjoy shooting plastic guns in their living rooms. Its latest product is the $65 Assault Rifle for the PlayStation 3, which promises to add a whole new degree of "realism and excitement" to games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 -- oh, and it also makes sound effects even when you're not playing a game. Head on past the break for the video.

CTA Digital Offers Realistic Gaming Experience with First-Ever Assault Rifle Controller for PS3

With the first of its kind Assault Rifle Controller for the PlayStation 3 available for purchase, CTA Digital outfits serious gamers with the right accessory for realism and excitement during first-person shooter games. Fully compatible with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and other FPS games, the Assault Rifle Controller will take gaming to a new level.

BROOKLYN, NY – In the past, war games on the PlayStation 3 lacked that necessary bit of realism; namely, the feel of a rifle during simulated combat and the ability to shoot with the trigger. For the first time ever, PlayStation 3 gamers now have the perfect peripheral for battle with CTA Digital's newly- available Assault Rifle Controller, adding never-before realism to first-person shooter games.

With the look of an assault rifle and lightweight construction for ease of use, this accessory allows gamers to get down on the floor in full sniper pose and wreak havoc in their favorite first-person shooter games, including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and Call of Duty: World at War, and all other shooter games. Designed with modern warfare in mind, the Assault Rifle's trigger functions as the R1 button for realistic "reaction" game-play. Each OEM Sony PlayStation controller button is represented on the Assault Rifle, including the D-pad, PS button, start and select buttons, and clickable thumb sticks for strafing, running, steadying the weapon, and exploring the game environment. Gamers can pull the trigger with one hand and press the controller buttons with the other to shoot enemy combatants and move through the gaming environment. The Rifle comes with a removable scope and stock.

The Assault Rifle also features a built-in speaker with realistic sound effects that can be turned on and off for a fun game play experience. By pulling the trigger, the Rifle emits single shot, three-shot burst, and fully automatic sound effects to complement the on-screen action that can be activated even when the Rifle isn't synced with the PlayStation 3.

Setting up the Rifle is as easy as pushing a button. Gamers simply plug in the USB dongle key to their PlayStation 3 units, and then press the home button on the Rifle for wireless synchronization. Four LED lights display controller port selection.

The Rifle is powered with two AA batteries and has an on/off switch to conserve power. Each package includes the Assault Rifle controller, USB dongle key, scope, and stock. The Rifle itself is available at Amazon (http://tinyurl.com/38ha6oe) and many retail outlets. You can check out the video demo of the Assault rifle here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwxM11zYF2M).
