Why I LOVE the Kevin Butler commercial itself, they gotta be joking with this new gimmick.  Why would one EVER use this thing over a controller.  Possibly if you play your games on a projector and actually could look around the entire screen.  But how much can a standard tv even show?  I have a 32 inch i think, and i can already pan the whole scren just by flicking my wrist, let alone moving my whole arm.

 

I say of those 20% of players who ever try it, 90% will bring it back and use a controller.

 

So thoughts?  Anyone used this thing?  Is it another SUPER SCOPE liek NES?

The Sharpshooter is pretty awesome...if you have a huge tv. Like you said, just minute movements can get you across you the whole screen. I tried it on a 72" Sony tv and it worked amazingly. After awhile tho you have to recalibrate and that kinda sucks. It's really fun but in my opinion the classic 'controller' will always win.

I don't have the sharpshooter but I do use move. I think it's a lot more fun than using the DS3. But I generally prefer pointer controls over twin sticks.

So this thing is sort of like playing with a Lightgun / Light Rifle eh?

It is an accessory for Playstation Move, the Move controller basically sits in the plastic gun. So it kind of works like a lightgun but require much more subtle movements.

The sharpshooter was fun during campaign and easy enough to use on the harder difficulty. But I've never dared to use it online. I would only use it online if they offered a mode that was sharpshooters only.

hmmm, lots of mixed experiences, but it seems the overall majority of those who like it actually like it a LOT. I wish I had the money to do it myself...

come on guys! it's not that bad, it's just that everyone seems to have a grudge when a new peripheral comes out! if you're lucky enough to have one, the sharpshooter is pretty awesome if you ask me. (its soo l33t wink)

I think Babe0booey raves about it, he seems to like it a lot. I've never tried the gun yet but I don't think it's the fault of the gun that Oly is terrible 😉

I sure do rave alot about it!

 

It takes some fine tuning as you find a comforatble hitzone box size which allows movement etc, but once you get that set you're laughing. Its alot of fun with the sniper class, I went on a mazzive killing spree with it. Like i said it takes some tuning and practice, I advise you train in bot games before going out in the online world, also the campain is good for training as well.

 

Good luck, you'll love it!!

It feels more realistic if you ask me. If you turn at the normal speed you would while aiming a gun it is spot on
