sniping without sixaxis? -- updated with results

21 replies 4 views Edited Mar 3, 2009

I read in another post if u are sniping the scope moves depending on your sixaxis motion so if u have it steady the scope will be steady

 

but what if u dont have sixaxis or have it turned off will the scope stay still all the time or still move? Thanks

sniping with a ps2 controller and there is absolutely no movement on the rifle. well just a bit but its almost perfect sights

I'll add to that, if it's ok PANCHO. What I'd like to know is.....are you at a disadvantage if you don't have/use sixaxis? I've heard it's used to fine tuning your shots

I wondered about this too, even though I don't use any third-party controllers.  Regardless, I think you will be SOL when you have to turn a valve...

I've got a normal ps3 controller with sixaxis anyway. It was only curiosity made me ask that question.

What's SOL?

$h!7 out of Luck. Anyway, yeah, he won't be able to turn a valve. XD Although, I wonder why he doesn't have a sixaxis, don't 3rd parties also have motion control?

Honestly, I can't begin to tell you much better it is to "tweak" your aiming with the sixaxis.. It was awesome.

i have 2 ps3 controllers that are messed up due to stupid cod4 , the analog sticks move on their own

 

so i prefer using a ps2 controller with an adapter they seem a lot more durable to me

I'm very glad to hear this.  Of course, I will have to feel it for myself, but GTA 4 had some of the worst sixaxis usage, especially on the motorcycles.  It was almost impossible to drive those things!  Anyway, back on topic - I think it makes more sense to have to hold the controller steady to get a steady aim rather than having no control over the gun bouncing around and having to press an arbitrary button to "hold your breath" like other games.

 

That being said, I hope non-sixaxis users will not be perfectly steady just because they don't use sixaxis.  That would be totally unfair.
