The Dual SFX Frag Pro is a full featured wireless PS3 and PC gaming controller with programmable button configurations and adjustable mouse aiming that provides unprecedented levels of accuracy. It improves upon the tremendously popular FragFX, adding a dual wireless system to the intuitive controller.
An ergonomic, 2000 DPI laser mouse provides PC-like accuracy and easy PS Home navigation, while the left-hand grip provides full SixAxis motion control and a whole slew of customization functions and other special performance features.
SplitFish will also be providing a first ever sneak peek at their revolutionary SPLIT, DUAL WIRELESS, ANALOG STICK controller innovations designed specifically with SPORTS and other ACTION/RPG titles in mind such as FIFA, MADDEN and LITTLE BIG PLANET. The Dual SFX Evolution combines the intuitive action-gaming mechanics of two-tier accuracy control into one complete control interface.
A right-hand motion/analog joystick controller joins an updated version of the Fragchuck made famous by the original FragFX. Together, the two halves provide two handed freedom and simultaneous macro and micro gaming control necessary for a superior action game experience.
"2009 has been a tremendously interesting and exciting time in game ware developments for SPLITFISH. We were able to evolve ideas with core game developers and pro gamers to expand on revolutionary concepts like the FragFx and other cutting edge innovations. Our goal was to make gaming on a console more intuitive and fun, as well as fill our Pro Gamer's wish lists.
We wanted to create a whole new level of individualization and performance in gaming interfaces great for everything from MW2 to our other favorites like LITTLE BIG PLANT, FIFA and MADDED. With the FREVOLUTION X DUAL wireless controllers, we have produced the most advanced controllers for first person CONSOLE/PC gaming styles that we know of." says Jason Johnson, Head of Creative Development for Splitfish AG.
Both the Dual SFX Frag Pro and the Dual SFX Evolution include dynamic sensitivity adjustments, analog stick swap ability, full support for all PS3 games, as well as PlayStation®2 games played on PS3, and upgradeable firmware.

Wouldn't that give players an unfair advantage over the people using the dualshock 3?
I figure it is like the people that have a super fancy mouse and keyboard that has like 100 buttons and they macro everything to them. If those are alright then this should be also.
I know some people have issues with the PS3 controller for FPS, so a high quality controller would be a nice option. I know that all the non-Sony PS3 controllers I have suck terribly in comparison to my DS3.
