Saitek Introduces Cyborg 3D Force Stick
9:07 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Saitek today introduced a follow-up to their popular Cyborg 3D Gold joystick dubbed the Cyborg 3D Force Stick. The new joystick has four thumb buttons, four base buttons, a rapid response trigger, 8-way POV hat switch, lever throttle, and 3-D twist. (The Cyborg 3D Force Stick also offers PC users force feedback, support for which is currently missing from Mac OS 9 and X.)

Here's more on the new joystick:

Thanks to the most advanced force technology available, PC players receive the most realistic and varied force experiences; they can actually feel the action on the screen with the new Cyborg 3D Force Stick. Whether it's the recoil of the laser blaster or the shock of hitting an asteroid, the experience of touch takes the game to another dimension. The new processor delivers up to ten force experiences simultaneously.

Like the original, award-winning Cyborg joystick, the Cyborg 3D Force Stick is equally comfortable for left- or right-handers, with dual left/right hand throttle. The 3D Rudder Twist on the handle increases the realism in flight sim games but the stick is also great for racing games where force effects are prominent.

A USB connector allows for simple "plug and play" on Windows or Macintosh.

Although Mac users won't be able to take advantage of the force feedback, the rest of the joystick is fully functional. For more information, check out the Saitek USA web site.
