One for the gamers out there today… Splitfish announces the Fragfx Shark 360 controller which is basically a mouse for your Xbox 360. I’ve always wondered what gaming with a mouse on the 360 would be like?! Not only can you use this with your 360 but it can be used on PC or Mac as well. It runs on 2AA batteries and supposedly can give you up to 50 hours of gameplay time. I don’t see a price mentioned though… Read the PR below for full details, but I think I want one..
