Novint Falcon Limited Edition  - Novint Falcon Limited Edition
Fri, December 07 2007 | 5:06PM | PermaLink Feedback?
"The Falcon is a fantastic game controller, although I still think a few kinks need to be ironed out. With the circular grip we used the Falcon quickly became painful to use unless you had a lot of desk space to spread out on, for example. Several of us ended up almost up-ending the Falcon completely with some over-enthusiastic swings, for example. However, just because it is good, it doesn't mean that it'll sell or that it's good for the market. I've been round the block enough to know that selling something like the Falcon, even to seasoned gamers, will be an uphill struggle. This is the major fault of the Novint when you get right down to it, it's an awesome gadget, but it's a pretty sure thing that it'll never really sell well enough to take off. Is it the coolest peripheral we've ever had our hands on? Undoubtedly and, although the comparison has probably been used before and is a bit unfair to start with, the Novint puts the Wiimote to shame in many regards. Unfortunately though, we can probably only recommend it to readers on the "Oh my god, that's so cool"? factor at the moment. The reality is that there just aren't enough games out there which are new to the Falcon and, although the Quake 4, Penumbra and Half-Life 2 mods are fantastically cool, without the promise of support from future developers, they just don't amount to $239 worth of cool."
