Built to meet the needs of FPS gamers Mad Catz has announced today that coming this 2011 holiday season they will be shipping the new F.P.S. Pro Wired GamePad for XBOX 360 and F.P.S. Pro Wireless GamePad for Playstation 3. Both variants feature backlit analog sticks which can be set to glow in 3 distinct colours. For the XBOX version those colours are green, orange, and red; while the PS3 version will be blue, purple, or red.
Both variants also includes two new rear buttons to allow for easier remapping of controls for FPS players to set up the controller to their prefer needs when they’re looking to get a better rate of control out of their playing experience. Each variant comes with 9 pre-set modes allowing players to remap action buttons or Thumbstick commands as they like. The controllers themselves come in 3 flavours of colours: Stealth Black, Army Green, and Swat Blue. While not a major FPS player myself I must admit these look pretty awesome and wouldn’t mind setting one up for my own needs either for FPS titles or other games.
The F.P.S. Pro GamePads will sell for $39.99 (USD) each and you can find out more on the Mad Catz website.
