A new device has been created to aid first-person shooter (FPS) video game players see the exact centre of their screen and comes in the form of the new Airdrop Gaming’s HipShotDot red dot sight attachment.
If you are one of those FPS that places a sticker in the centre of your screen for you to easily recognise the centre and where your sites are pointed without the need to zoom in.
The HipShotDot provides a more up-to-date alternative providing an easy to see illuminated red dot just like you would get from a laser sight. Whether the device can be classed as cheating is another point as there is no possible way to track will tell whether one player is using it over another. Airdrop Gaming co-founder Tim Murphy explains :
“Gamers ever since Doom would place a piece of tape in the center of the screen and mark it with a marker to make their own little reticle on the TV, so then they’ll have these sights on their television all night,”
“We can say that it is not software based, it is not going to shoot for you,”-“You still need to know how to play and some skill set to be able to play. So when it comes to cheating, we say it is probably like that much [indicating inches] rather than that much [indicating feet].”
The HipShotDot is now available to purchase for $29.99, for more information on the new Sony PlayStation 4 Still Top Selling US Games Console After 5 Months Straight FPS sight attachment for your TV jump over to the Airdrop Gaming website for details.
