SWITCHBLADE LOCKS AND LOADS WITH THE SUPPORT OF CALL OF DUTY 4 AND MORE
New FPS Pack Gives PC Gamers New Ways to Play Their Favorite Shooters
Blue Orb, Inc. today announced the release of three new "Blades" for its popular SwitchBlade application, which lets gamers play PC games with an Xbox 360(TM) controller. The Blades, or game-specific controller solutions, offer support for recent blockbuster Call of Duty 4, as well as Call of Duty 2 and the ever-popular Counterstrike: Source.
Since first-person shooters on PC are traditionally played with a mouse and keyboard, many developers opt not to include controller support – or included it with very limited capabilities. But since many enthusiast gamers have chosen the Xbox 360(TM) to get their shooting kicks this generation, PC gamers who want to brush up on their controller shooting skills now have options– as do gamers who simply prefer the console controller style.
"Since SwitchBlade was such a resounding success in the MMO sphere, we decided to take the next logical step, and tackle the PC's definitive genre – the shooter," said Aaron Levin, Vice President of Business Development at Blue Orb. "We took our first leap with our Half-Life 2 Blade a month ago, and now we're supporting one of the most popular titles out there with Call of Duty 4."
