Being a video gamer I am always looking for ways to make things a bit more comfortable. Recently I was given the opportunity to test out the XTendPlay Ergonomic Adapter. If you are a gamer then you know that a controller needs to work with you without major adjustments. When I play FPS games I need my fingers to be in full synchronicity. When I play casual board games, or slow paced games I can afford to be more flexible. The XTendPlay Adapter worked for the casual games for me. I tried playing Battlefield 3 for a few rounds with the adapter, and it seemed uncomfortable because of the squareness.
While I am not saying that this product is not well made I am stating that the product is best suited for those that play in a loose style, and are willing to make change. The product is well made. I will still use this for my family, and casual games. Maybe in time I will grow to like it more for my FPS games. The adapter fits all Playstation 3 controllers, and there is also an XBox version. The adapter is made of a soft-touch, ultra-lightweight fleXlite™ foam.
