Sony has announced the Dualshock 4 Back Button Attachment is coming early next year, featuring two customizable buttons. It will be possible to attach them to the back of the wireless controller and program whatever you’d like. It still has headset integration for a regular 3.5mm audio input.
According to Sony, “This new attachment elevates your gameplay by delivering more versatility and performance, while maintaining the comfort and feel of the DualShock 4 wireless controller you’ve come to love.”
There are three key points to know about the attachment:
- You can assign 16 different functions to three different accounts, for example, if your child or girlfriend prefers different control settings.
- It’s easy to set controls by simply scrolling. Plus, they are really well-positioned for your fingers. Maybe it will make Souls-like games more passable for beginners.
- It releases on January 23, 2020 and costs $29.99 USD. It’s a very competitive price for those who doesn’t want to spend $200 for a custom SCUF controller.
Despite the fact that Sony should have made it a long time ago and the screen is on the back of the controller (where no one ever looks), this might be a good feature test for DualShock 5.
