After raising over $200,000 on Kickstarter, anticipation surrounds The Delta Six Video Game Gun Controller for use in first person shooter videos games.
With a realistic design and functions, there is nothing comparable currently available and with two Call of Duty first person shooting games in the top ten list of best-selling video games for 2014, the market for the controller is huge.
The company recently announced the launch of new features that work to enhance the shooting experience for the player. The device now provides real recoil when firing, an optional railing system, a more realistic weight and rapid fire abilities, and improved coding makes aim more representative of a real firearm.
The sales of The Delta Six continue to rise despite controversy. Met with excitement from supporters and criticism from a small vocal group of opposition, The Delta Six is a very hot topic of conversation in video gamer circles and beyond. IGN states, “It takes the action of Call of Duty and brings it to life while making you look like a total bad ass.”
Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump weighed in on this issue, tweeting: “Video game violence & glorification must be stopped – it is creating monsters!”
Other celebrities have publicly criticized The Delta Six and company owner, David Kotkin. Piers Morgan was so adamant about the product he refused to shake Kotkin’s hand after a televised interview. However, Morgan’s studio staff allegedly rushed up to Kotkin after the interview to find out where they could purchase The Delta Six. Barbara Walters also lambasted Kotkin for creating The Delta Six when he appeared on The View.
“The people who see this and complain that the Delta improves marksmanship is like saying a knife is too sharp and shouldn’t be sold. You then have a lot of people wanting that knife,” said David Kotkin, Owner of The Delta Six.
The Delta Six is compatible with all major gaming systems, including the Oculus Rift, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and the PC.
