Paradox – Trackball control for PS2

If you’ve been annoyed by the lack of accuracy you get with the dual control sticks for your PS2, you’ll be happy to know that bodieLobus has announced that the Paradox – their trackball-based controller for the PS2 – can be preordered right now.

It gets better – there’s a contest during the pre-order period that allows for you to enter a contest to help design the official logo of the limited edition run of 30,000 controllers. While the contest is in effect, the price is quite low. Even right now, the price is only $21.99, so it won’t hurt your pocketbook too much.

Those interested in a preorder can check out BuyReflex.com. Check out the official Press Release below:
