As the saying goes if you’re not cheating you’re not trying to win. While the new Hoops Freek’s joystick addition isn’t exactly breaking the rules, it does give users added precision and control in games such as NBA 2K11. Come this holiday season this will be a must on the list of all avid basketball video games.
KontrolFreek (www.kontrolfreek.com), makers of the revolutionary TD Freek, FPS Freek and Speed Freek attachments for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 controllers, announced today they are expanding their family of quality sports adapters to include a new basketball-themed adapter called the Hoops Freek™. The controller enhancement arrives just in time to give players improved control and comfort on the court in titles such as NBA 2K11 and EA’s completely revamped NBA Elite 11. Both NBA games demand more sophisticated joystick work than ever, and Hoops Freek is ideal for players who want the most out of these improved gaming experiences.
The Hoops Freek is a snap-on joystick extension that provides improved leverage, comfort, and maneuverability within game play. The device features a premium grip surface designed to look and feel like the skin of a real basketball. The extra leverage and maneuverability introduced by Hoops Freek enhances game fundamentals like dribbling, defending and passing. At the same time, it allows advanced players to slice through defenses and pull off more complicated moves like: picks, blocks, crossovers, spins, layups and dunks with considerably less effort than ever before.
Hoops Freek begins shipping on October 5, for $9.99 and is available for pre-order at http://www.kontrolfreek.com/Game-Controller-Accessories/KontrolFreek-Hoops-Freek.asp
