With the much anticipated releases of Halo Reach and COD: Black Ops, Datel’s tech team has been hard at work further developing the already impressive spec of their WildFire 2 wireless controller– adding even more super enhanced game specific features to give the ultimate gaming experience.

Wildfire 2 is the only third party Xbox 360 controller that features direct sync with the console– no cord or dongle required. The WildFire 2 delivers seamless control and accuracy, plus programmable Turbo Rapid Fire, vibration feedback and full analogue input.

But what sets WildFire 2 apart from all other controllers is its unique all-new Customizer feature which lets the user tailor the controller to the way they want to play. This new feature is simple to use, but delivers maximum effect. By connecting the controller to the USB port of any online-enabled PC users can access WildFire's built-in Customizer profile. From within this application they can download a whole host of custom created controller moves and enhancements such as Sniper Mode, Low Recoil, and Macro/Combo sequences to customise the controller like never before.

Choose to remap WildFire's buttons.  Speed up or, slow down the controller's own Turbo Rapid Fire feature, annihilating opponents with just a few button presses.  Swap the analogue sticks around if the player is left handed, or even use the Call of Duty configuration on Halo Reach. Once the gamer has selected their game-conquering configuration, settings will be stored on the WildFire controller, ready to use in-game.

With the Xbox 360 powered up, WildFire 2 is combat ready!

WildFire 2 the most powerful weapon in a 360 gamers armoury.
