Press Release: PS3 INTENSAFIRE
From the minds of gamers. We saw a need in the gaming market. Console and accessory customization is a large part of the gaming world. The problem was that gamers buy mod kits for their controllers only to find out they were too complex to assemble themselves. So we partnered with an engineering team to get a product to the gamers that eliminates the technical curve, and offers more than the standard mod kit does.
What does it do?
The PS3 INTENSAFIRE enhances the newer PS3 Dual Shock 3 controllers allowing them to transform to rapid fire controllers. The 8-mode sleeper settings, include rapid fire to the R1, R2 and "X" buttons. There are 8 total modes with 5 preset modes and 3 user customizable programmable modes.
It uses the D-Pad to toggle modes, and on and off. Usable in all PS3 Games, including gamer favorites: KillZone 2, The Call of Duty series, BattleField Bad Company 2, and other current and future first person shooter and fighting games. The IntensaFIRE promises to bring your gaming to the next level.
How is it better?
Rapid-fire mod kits exist. The PS3 INTENSAFIRE however, is a complete user programmable rapid fire kit that you can install yourself... EASILY. There are controllers on the market, prefabricated, that do what the PS3 INTENSAFIRE offers, each controller going for well over $150.
We offer a kit that is extremely simple to install, taking no more than 2 minutes with no tools for less than half the cost of the prefabricated units.
Other mod kits require drilling, wiring, gluing, and deconstruction of your controllers. The PS3 INTENSAFIRE is a snap on clip that needs none of the above tools. Connect the PS3 INTENSAFIRE flex board to the controller and you're ready to go!
Bonus: You get two free LED's to customize your controller that go in with just a clip. You have the option to change these LED's in the middle of a match; its that easy to do!

verry cool, from the usermanual it makes it look like its plug and play no soldering required...
still kinda fuzzy on exactly how it works after installed though...
i hope that all future fps games come with code that limits firing rates to make mods like this useless. kind of like what iw did with mw2, they limited the fire rate of the fal to prevent cheaters from using rapid fire controllers. anyone thinking about buying one of these needs to stick to gaming on the 360. glitching and cheating is expected on the 360, not the ps3.

ok, I got my controller a bit early, ;] just got back from work. have myself a dualshock 3 in pretty much pristine condition.
let me know what I need to do.
Actually, I have 4 Sixaxis and Dual-Shock controllers, two of each, from both 2007 (launch) and 2009-2010 production models, to give you a broader test scope if interested. I'd be happy to swap back and forth among them to test it out.
I will definitely keep you in mind tripellex... but in the meantime, if you can mail me a shipping addy ionbladez then I will forward it to our IntensaFire contact to send the sample out to ya for review.
