PENGUIN LAUNCHES EAGLE EYE; CONVERTS KEYBOARD AND MOUSE INTO TURBO CONTROLLER FOR FIRST-PERSON SHOOTER GAMES

FREMONT, CA (AUGUST, 2010) - When Penguin United first introduced the Eagle Eye Converter at E3 (E3) the enthusiasm from gamers and industry insiders was overwhelming. Since E3, the anticipation and internet chatter has dramatically increased as gamers wait for the Eagle Eye to arrive. Penguin has announced that the Eagle Eye has launched and is available for immediate purchase from the company’s web site as well as Amazon and other select retail outlets.

The Eagle-Eye converts any standard USB HID keyboard and mouse into a turbo charged controller for the Sony ® PlayStation TM 3 video game console. The Eagle-Eye Converter provides a customized key mapping feature for all PS3 controller buttons that seamlessly transfers the command data to your keyboard and mouse. Now first-person shooter games like Call of Duty; Modern Warfare, Killzone 3, and BioShock can be played with greater dexterity, speed and accuracy than with a standard controller.

The Eagle Eye Converter lets you use a Keyboard and Mouse to control the game instead of a traditional PS3 hand-held controller, allowing the user to customize keys and start playing immediately. The Eagle Eye is equipped with a high-capacity CPU, making the mouse movement fluid with no delay and no“dead-zone”.

“The feedback and enthusiasm from gamers has been astonishing,” stated Richard Huang, Penguin’s President.“Whether from diehard fans of first-person shooters, PC or PS3 games, the response since E3 has been amazing. We anticipate tremendous demand for the Eagle Eye and look forward to providing gamers, retailers and the video game industry with an exciting new product that will change the way gamers experience first-person shooters.”
