I wonder if this will work well for first person shooters (not as a mouse but for your movement WASD etc.)

I think it would as long as the buttons are programmable.  According to the site, it seems this is intended as a mouse replacement, so the buttons might be hard-coded to perform specific tasks, especially right and left click.

EDIT:  I re-read the site, and it's a companion to the mouse, so it might be fully programmable.

Fujitsu-Siemens as a joint venture of both companies is dead.

Just watched the demo and now I'm really curious. Of course it's dirt cheap and will have to find it's predecessor(s) on eBay.
