So this is a thing now.
A miniature, wired PS4 controller with all the non-essential features stripped back and a flatter design. I suppose for a kids first time playing on the console, the Dualshock 4 may be a bit intimidating, and thus… This thing.
It actually looks pretty neat, though it’s a shame that it’s wired.
If you have very tiny hands or just don’t want to pay for a full-fledged controller, the Mini Wired Gamepad from Hori will be available across the US and Canada this holiday for $29.99 USD (MSRP) / $39.99 CAD (MSRP).
