“Our dedicated community of gamers define our future, and thus asking them to help design, name and vote for our next FPS Freek analog stick seems natural,” said Ashish Mistry, CEO of KontrolFreek. “Over the years, we’ve listened to our fans’ ideas, but this is the first time we’ve expressly tapped the passion and creativity of the community by issuing a call for designs. We’re really excited to see what they come up with.”
