Welcome back to Show and Tell, where Peter Salib unboxes sweet tech for every area of your life. Gamers: Could you ever reach your limit of gaming accessories? Most would answer with a resounding, “Never!” If you’re looking to upgrade your first person shooter (FPS) game, Salib is here to unbox the Arkade Blaster FPS Motion Controller. Even PewDiePie has a collab with this brand, so let’s see if the device is a level-up.
Taking immersion to the next level
Looking for a gaming controller that brings you into the action? If you’re not experienced, you may not know that in an FPS game, you play from the perspective of your character; the experience is more immersive and personal. So, the Arkade Blaster was especially maximized for these games. You can play in 360 using your phone, which mounts to the top of the controller, sliding closer or further from your face depending on your play style. Using a high-precision gyroscope, the Arkade Blaster follows your movement, whether you’re leaning or turning. It also produces haptic feedback, creating a more tangible experience.
The Arkade Blaster connects to your phone using low latency Bluetooth, which is necessary for high-quality audio and video. And if you’re looking to become the next Twitch star, push the Arkade logo on the gaming controller to begin live streaming immediately. The rechargeable battery lasts for 14 hours. (But maybe you won’t be playing for 14 hours straight.)
The buttons are pre-programmed for over 100 games. For PC, compatible games include Fortnite, Call of Duty, Halo, Overwatch, Gears of War and many more. For Android, games include Roblox, Sniper Fury, Modern Combat, Shadow Gun and Grand Theft Auto. But if you’d like a little more freedom, you can also customize your Arkade Blaster, creating new actions for each button using the app. The possibilities are nearly endless.
You can also choose the design you like. The colorful “skin” in the video was created in collaboration with PewDiePie, a long-time YouTuber and one of the biggest gamers on the platform. He earned $13 million in 2019 alone and is the only solo creator to reach 100 million subscribers, according to Business Insider.
