Genius has announced a new line of PC joysticks aimed at the flight simulation fan. The line is called MetalStrike and each of the three models feature a turbo function. The MetalStrike FF and Pro joysticks feature force feedback that causes vibrations when the player bumps, crashes, or shoots something in game.

The sticks have 13 programmable buttons and an 8-way POV hat switch. The sticks have a four-axis design and offer rudder control. Also featured is an air control system to keep hands cool while playing. The MetalStrike 3D retails for $26.99, the MetalStrike Pro with vibration is $39.99 and the MetalStrike FF with force feedback is $69.99.

All of the sticks are available now. Gamers who like flying games and are not using force feedback are missing the most realistic part of the game. The force feedback joystick is priced well and will add greatly to the realism of your game.
