Hyperkin's AK Striker accessory for PlayStation Move.
The AK Striker, a PlayStation Move controller attachment designed to replicate an AK-47, has been released by video game accessory maker Hyperkin just over a month after the deadly shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in which 20 children and six adults were fatally shot by a semi-automatic rifle by gunman Adam Lanza. Hyperkin states that its AK Striker PS Move accessory gives gamers "the ability to play shooting games with a more realistic feel that they otherwise would not have."
The accessory features a retractable rear stock, a collapsible navigation controller cradle, the full complement of face buttons on a standard PS3 DualShock controller placed on the gun handle, and a firing mode selector. Players can wield the AK Striker like a full rifle by using the included shoulder attachment; or like a submachine gun with the shoulder attachment removed.
"We have taken every suggestion very seriously on the design of the AK Striker and made the necessary changes to better fit the needs of PS3 gamers," said Steven Mar, Hyperkin's Executive Director. "As it stands, the AK Striker now provides the most authentic and realistic PlayStation Move experience out on the market."
The AK Striker carries an MSRP of $34.99 and can be found at a variety of video game and electronics retailers.
