Performance gaming accessories company answers community requests, launches new KontrolFreek UltraX Thumbstick for XBox and PlayStation gaming consoles.

The increased precision and decreased force required to move the analog stick will result in a better player and a better way to game. I guarantee it.

KontrolFreek, creators of the popular FPS Freek®, Speed Freek™ and other performance gaming accessories, today added to its renowned Classic line of thumbsticks, introducing KontrolFreek UltraX – a convex version of the best-selling KontrolFreek Ultra.

Created with precision and accuracy in mind, the black on black UltraX features a dome-shaped dimpled thumb surface that provides an extremely even and consistent contact surface, giving gamers better medium to long-range accuracy and is perfect for sniping and trick-shotting in first-person shooter games. UltraX can be used to gain a competitive edge in almost all console games, and is sure to please fans of the native PlayStation thumbsticks.

"UltraX was a long-time coming," said Ashish Mistry, President and CEO of KontrolFreek. "The KontrolFreek Ultra has been a top seller since we launched the company, and while the changes are subtle, UltraX is sure to make its mark."

By increasing the length of the analog sticks by half an inch, precision is improved dramatically. UltraX provides a range of motion increase of more than 40%, giving gamers the ability to make smaller, more precise in-game movements. This affords the luxury of turning up controller sensitivities to maximum levels so gamers can turn on their opponents faster and gain the upper-hand during intense gun battles.

"This longer KontrolFreek will allow you to get on target much faster," YouTube commentator Sik Sensei says. "The increased precision and decreased force required to move the analog stick will result in a better player and a better way to game. I guarantee it."

Earlier, this month KontrolFreek introduced the atomic orange FPS Freek Vortex, which pairs two different thumbstick heights and styles in one package. Each package includes one taller, convex FPS Freek that provides more leverage and accuracy for the right aiming stick and one shorter, concave FPS Freek CQC that is designed to enhance the grip and maneuverability of the left stick.

KontrolFreek UltraX is designed to fit both the Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation3 controllers, but it is compatible with many third-party controllers. It retails for $10.99 and is available now from KontrolFreek.com. KontrolFreek products are made in the United States and are sanctioned for tournament play.
