PS releases a new controller. I tried it in Brussels.
I went to Brussels to try this controller. And honestly, my experience with it was really good. With this new controller, you’ll get lots of controls using the PS. It is great for regular users and users with special needs. This controller is great for both, and I’ll discuss the details in this review.
There’s a huge difference between the regular controller and this one, even with the unboxing experience. The parts are laid out in the box in a beautiful way. NO matter how you carry the box, it’ll stay balanced.
Let’s discuss the details, This is the new controller from PS. As soon as you open the box, you’ll be greeted with the whole set. This is the controller itself, and these are all the additional parts and the cables. All the parts inside the box are well-balanced placed. This is the USB-C to USB-C cable to allow you to connect the controller to the PS.
My guess is that the length of the cable is 1.5m. This is the controller and some of the parts attached to it. You can remove the buttons and replace them. Even the X button in the middle is removable and customisable. All the buttons are replaceable.
To remove the button, you have to push inside and up. This method won’t allow the buttons to be removed by accident. Here are 4 additional small buttons. There are another 4 big buttons, as well. There are 2 extra big buttons. Here’s a button that can replace two buttons with one.
They are easy to install. There are two additional wheel controllers. Here are also small stickers that you can place on the controllers to let you know which is which. This controller is an additional controller to the PS. It is great for people with special needs and other users. It is great for people with deceases who can’t use the normal controller to play. I had a meeting with some users with special needs using these new controllers. Enabling these users to play is something very important. It is great for users who can’t use the normal controllers to play along side the normal controller. This new controller open the way for a sea of customisation. The wheel buttons attached to the controller has a lock mechanism to allow it to be elongated.
The design of the controller allows it be fully customised. You can orient the controller however you prefer. Thus allowing all users to use it however they prefer. This is the Profile button, but why does it have it?
You can make different profiles where each button can be customised as you prefer. You can edit the configuration of the profiles from the PS, and the profile will be saved on the controller itself. You can save different profiles and change between them using this button.
The controller has a charging ports and 4 different peripheral ports. These ports are great for users with special needs. All the customisation can be saved to the profiles. It might take up to 2 weeks to get used to using it. You can also change the sensitivity of the buttons. Each controller can work independently. Or it can be attached to another controller. Or it can be attached to a normal controller. You can program it however you prefer. Having bottom threads can allow the users to fixate the controller however they prefer. I’ll fully review this controller in a separate review.
You can pre-order it, and it’ll be officially available in Asia and the Middle East. It is expected to cost 86$ or higher. This controller is great for most users, and I think it is a great addition for gamers. With this controller, you can do things that you can’t do with the normal controller. You can customise all the buttons, including the X button from the software.
The software that allows for such customisation is built in the software of the PS. You can customise each and every button. You can even customise the ports. The customisation level is amazing with this controller. You can even customise the sensitivity of the buttons. Even the joypad can be customised. This all add another dimension to gaming. I think there will be games only developed to be played with this new controller.
PS has been developing this Access Controller since 2018. Do you think that this controller will enhance your gaming? 🤭
And should these controllers be more popular among gamers? 🤔
These controllers can add another dimension to gaming that makes gaming more entertaining. I spoke with a person who was a gamer before, but because of an accident, he wasn’t able to game again. The only way he was able to play is to move his arm around and press the buttons using the other hand. He was able to play very basic games using the the normal controller. But using this controller, he’ll be able to play games like Gods of War and other demanding games. This is a great humanitarian step from PS to allow people with special needs to be able to play again. I haven’t seen anything like this before in the gaming department, where a company pays so much attention to create a new device for people in need. This is something to praised. And I am sure that, with time, this controller will get even better.
Let me know what games should we play using this new device. Hopefully, these buttons can be 3D printed to allow for even more customisation. However, all the buttons included in the box are enough for most users..
See you later.😇😍
