The Delta Six controller for video games, set for release early next year, is raising excitement and concern as it looks very similar to an actual firearm.

The Delta Six controller is intended to give adult players of First-Person Shooting (FPS) games, such as 'Call of Duty,' a more realistic experience (video below).

However, the Delta Six controller is bound to stir controversy that it will encourage violence among young people, reports the Daily Mail.

The controller has all the controls of a standard joypad on a fake military assault weapon, it also aims like a real gun.

The Delta Six controller includes numerous accessories and can be converted from a sniper rifle to a sub-machine gun.

The Delta Six was created by David Kotkin who told the Daily Mail: "For the first time a Call of Duty player will feel more immersed in game-play and have more control over the game than ever before. The only way to get more real is to enlist."

"This wins against a reg controller, even with and Avenger adapter on it. We're more excited about Delta Six than any other project to date. The Wii, and the Move tried but could not make a fun and innovative motion control for FPS games. So we had to."

"This is fun for adults, not for gamers younger than 21. The Delta Six is expected to cost $89 when it launches early next year."
