N-Control Avenger for 360 launching at $40, absorbing PS3 controllers soon

The N-Control Avenger, an arcane assembly of levers, cables and switches designed to make the Xbox 360 controller's buttons easily and quickly accessibly without moving your thumbs away from the analog sticks, is now shipping. It's launching (not literally launching, unless the cables are too tense) at a price of $39.99, a nice discount from the "regular" $59.99 price.

Jealous PS3 gamers waiting to tune up their controllers will be delighted to know that a PS3 version of the device is being prepared for a Q3 2011 release. N-Control is also working on a version to augment the Xbox 360 Razer Onza controller for release in Q4.
