Console gamers are familiar with such controllers but this is totally new to PC gamers. Some might like this and most definitely some will never even touch them. This one is produced by Razer. Razer has just announced that the new Hydra controller with Portal 2 bundle is now out in the USA.

From Razer's website:

Introducing the Razer Hydra, the world’s first PC gaming-grade motion sensing controllers that let you extend your natural body motion directly into the game. A breathtaking new way to play when you can intuitively reach out and interact with the virtual world in complete three dimensions, as you would in real life.

Faster with ultra-low latency and more precise with one-to-one tracking to the exact millimeter and degree makes this the best motion sensing for absolute game immersion.

The Razer Hydra is bundled exclusively with Portal 2, which includes the Sixense MotionPack DLC that features 6 TrueMotion levels that were specifically created for use with the Razer Hydra.
