Cube has launched a Pozible campaign for a new wireless USB video game controller for Android devices and PCs that offers a similar look and feel to Sony’s Dualshock line of controllers for the PlayStation family of consoles.
The Gamepad CGX01 can connect to Android tablets with a USB port, as well as Android smartphones. It also has a USB dongle to be used with PCs, as well as a receiver to plug it directly into a TV. The design is very similar to the Dualshock 3 controller, and the fact that it doesn’t use Bluetooth means that the connection will be more reliable and steady thanks to the 2.4 GHz radio signal. Although, the range is still limited to under 30 feet, so that limitation is still in place.
The CGX01 even has its own built-in game store with hundreds of compatible titles, but it will also work with any mobile game that offers native controller support. The same can be said for PC games, if they offer controller support, the CGX01 should work.
What’s intriguing about this controller is the fact that you can get it for a very low price if you back its Pozible campaign. The $5 price is sold out, but you can still get the controller for just $7 if you pledge your support. Even if this thing is a dud in terms of its built-in Cube store and game compatibility, you can’t go wrong with another wireless controller for your PC rig that is less than $10.
You can check out a video of the controller in action down below, and if you want more details you should read about the gadget on its Pozible page.
