Seems like this took a lot longer than it should have given how useful KontrolFreek accessories are for gaming, but as the old saying goes it’s better late than never. Nevertheless, both KontrolFreek and GameStop have announced that the controller accessories and thumb-grips for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 controllers have been made available on GameStop store shelves across the nation.
Ashish Mistry, CEO of KontrolFreek commented about the new partnership, saying…
“KontrolFreek is excited to be working with GameStop to bring our line of high performance gaming products to the destination gamers trust,” … “GameStop’s reach expands our footprint to an audience of discerning shoppers that know they can find the best in gaming gear at GameStop.”
The company has two separate packs available at GameStop stores, including the GamerPack VX, which contain the KontrolFreek Classic (one of my favorites) and the FPS Freek Vortex. Both thumb-sticks are available for the Xbox One and PS4. The second pack is the FPS Freek CQC Signature, green thumb-sticks with the KontrolFreek logo on them.
Clint Walker, senior merchant for the video game accessories at GameStop, also commented about the accessories, saying…
“As the video gaming specialist, GameStop is always looking for innovative products that we can offer to enhance our customer’s gaming experience,” … KontrolFreek has a great reputation among gamers for creating high quality products and will make a great addition to our stores.”
This comes shortly after KontrolFreek gained a foothold on the retail shelves of various outlets in the U.K., including both Best Buy and GAME.
In addition to this, the company also recently announced their line-up of accessories to accompany the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 for home consoles and PC.
The design for the thumb-grips of Black Ops 3 are orange and designed after the logo of the upcoming game from Treyarch and Activision.
Ashish Mistry also had comments to spare about the Black Ops 3 thumb-grips for the Xbox and PlayStation, saying…
“KontrolFreek’s Call of Duty products are a ‘must have’ for KontrolFreek and Call of Duty fans,” … “We’re just as excited about the reveal of the new Black Ops III game as everyone else, and with the Reveal now here, we can build anticipation leading into the fall.”
The new Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 thumb-grips are available now for both the Xbox One and PS4 for $17.99.
You can find the KontrolFreek accessories at your local GameStop store, if you’re looking to increase the precision of your thumb-stick control by about 40%. And yes, they do work, I should know because I have quite a few of the KontrolFreek thumb-grips. You can learn more about KontrolFreek by paying a visit to the official website.
