Designed and built with both casual and serious FPS gaming in mind, the MAG II features 3 pre-programmed sensitivity options and is the only gun controller to incorporate motion sensing and gyroscopic induction movement tracking.

The MAG II Gun Controller is supported by a team of engineers. Future downloadable updates (via PC) will be available to unlock new functions and gameplay modes accessible via the MAG II Gun Controllers' Function Dial.

The MAG II Gun Controller is set to hit markets at a price of 149.95 AUD, which roughly converts to Rs 8,363.

Here are some of the major features of the MAG II Gun Controller as listed on the official website:

  • Compatible with all First Person Shooter games
  • Full functionality of official controllers
  • Real time, in-game, on the fly calibration
  • High precision motion tracking gyroscope, eliminating the need for a sensor bar.
  • Wireless connection and built in vibration
  • Updateable system firmware and mods
  • Works with all TVs, projectors and monitors

Those looking to purchase this may also be interested in one of the year's biggest first person shooters that will be coming out later this month - Black Ops II. Recently, Activision had released the launch trailer for the game. The trailer shows a bunch of new things, like inclusion of wearable wings that let you fly, wrist mounted grappling guns, and mechs that will do the fighting for you – all this with Back in Black by AC/DC playing in the background.

The trailer also mentions the pre-order bonuses for Black Ops 2, which include the Nuketown 2025 multiplayer map and double XP for the first weekend after release, which will be November 16 to November 18.

Here is the description of Nuketown 2025 by Activision: “An arena-style map with unique art design, Nuketown promoted the type of fast-paced action that Call of Duty fans from around the world have come to love. Now re-imagined in a 50's depiction of the ‘Model Home of the Future’ Nuketown 2025 is set to take that familiar close-quarters chaos into the future!”

Call of Duty: Black Ops II is set to release on 12 November 2012 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. The game will also be available for the Wii U at a later date.
