If you’re one of the many gamers who prefer playing with console controllers that offer paddles or back buttons to let you jump, slide and do all sorts of stuff while keeping both thumbs on the analog sticks, then you’re in luck — if you’re a PS4 gamer. Today, Sony has announced the DualShock 4 back button attachment release date is set for January 23, 2020!
As its name implies this is an official Sony product, and is called the DualShock 4 back button attachment, and is cheap! Paddle-enabled controllers usually amount to at least $150 and more, right? For Sony’s PS4 controller back button attachment, it’ll cost just $29.99!
- Responsive Back Buttons and High-fidelity OLED Screen: The two back buttons can map up to 16 different actions such as triangle, circle, R1 and R2 to name a few and provide amazing tactile feedback, so you can jump and slide without missing a beat. The attachment also features an integrated OLED display that provides real time information around button assignments.
- Highly Configurable: A dedicated button allows you to remap back button inputs on the fly, so you are always prepared no matter what game you’re playing. Furthermore, you can save and choose up to three different profiles for use in various games and there is also a headset pass-through for connecting any 3.5mm wired headset to the controller.
- Developed by PlayStation: The product is tested and approved for all of your favorite PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR titles, and is built with the ergonomics of the DS4 in mind.
Needless to say, this would be perfect for shooters. I for one am super excited to try this out. Now, everyone can get paddles and extra back buttons for jumping and crouching, and it won’t cost them an arm and a leg.
Are you picking up one of these bad boys next year?
