XGaming Inc. is at it again, this time bringing to market a trackball design for Mac and PC gaming enthusiasts looking to replicate the arcade experience at home. The company today announced the
Aimed squarely at game fanatics looking to recreate an authentic video game arcade experience at home, the X-Arcade Trackball is part of the same family of products that started with the eponymous X-Arcade itself, a massive joystick and button array modeled after the heavy-duty, industrial-strength controls found on coin-operated video games. The controller, available in one and two-player editions, has become a hot commodity amongst video game emulation fans and other hardcore game players.
Like its joystick cousin, the X-Arcade Trackball is made of wood and the same sort of components you’d find in the arcade. It features a dual-button layout to accommodate left or right-handed players, and sports dual PS2 and USB ports, so it’s compatible with both Macs and Windows-based PCs. In fact, XGaming said the X-Arcade Trackball works as a standard multi-button mouse in games and other applications. It also comes with a fifteen-foot long cable.
The X-Arcade Trackball also comes with games, although the titles are PC-only.
Announced today, the X-Arcade Trackball is anticipated for release in June, and it doesn’t appear that a price has been set yet. More details are available from the Web site.
