I used to love PC gaming. Unreal Tournament ’99? Counter-Strike? Those were my jams, son. For years, I’d raged about how console controllers could never replicate the precision needed for PC shooters. Then I traded my PC for a Mac and joined all my “regular people” friends on Xbox Live.
Nowadays, I’m much happier in my gated community. Still, part of me yearns for the lightning-quick madness of mouse-and-keyboard controls. I just want to spin on a dime and put a single sniper round through some fool’s eyeball one last time.
That’s where Penguin United’s Eagle Eye Converter 3.0 comes in. Basically, this device claims to let console players hook up their mouse and keyboards to their Xbox 360.
Sounds great in theory, but does it actually work?
