If you're a fan of SwitchBlade, the World of Warcraft custom controller, you'll be excited to hear that the company which makes it is planning on expanding their offerings to several other games.

Blue Orb, Inc., the company that brings the console controller experience to PC games with SwitchBlade(TM), has announced plans to add support for Guild Wars, Hellgate: London, and Half-Life 2 on January 29.

The game-specific solutions, called "Blades," are being fine-tuned by Blue Orb's user experience team, and promise to bring gamers a whole new way to play these popular titles. In addition to the new offerings, the World of Warcraft Blade has been upgraded, with new class-specific templates that offer a better controller experience to individual classes.

"The WoW Blade launch exceeded even our own expectations," said Aaron Levin, Vice President of Business Development for Blue Orb. "Its success has only reaffirmed our goal - to provide something that many people have been demanding; the console experience with their PC. It goes beyond just slapping on controller support. Our team creates a finely tuned experience."
