It costs as much as a console and doesn’t sense gestures like Project Natal.
But game playing dads may still covet the new Ferrari Wireless GT Cockpit 430 Scuderia Edition controller from Thrustmaster.
The folding metal controller has 50 hours of battery life, 10 meters of range and weighs 23 pounds. It works with PCs and the PlayStation 3; a spokeswoman said there aren’t currently plans for an Xbox version.
It also costs $250 (which btw could be $100 more than a Project Natal setup, according to a report saying Natals will go on sale around October 26 for $149 or $299 bundled with an Xbox 360 Arcade edition.)
