With the back button extension, Sony introduced a new extension for the PS4 controller in mid-December 2019. In the meantime, the first tests for accessories have gone online – with initial opinions and conclusions. For the tester on IGN.com, the back key extension could even be an indication of the PS5 future. Sony promises a number of innovations for the new controller, including haptic feedback. The Verge also sees the DualShock 4 accessories as an astonishingly good expansion. The back button extension is available from February 14 for around 30 euros.
In mid-December 2019, Sony introduced the back button extension for the PS4 controller. The accessories are primarily intended for players who compete with other players in competitive titles. There are two programmable back buttons on the attachment, to which 16 different actions can be assigned. An OLED display also shows the assignment in real time. The DualShock 4 accessories will be released on February 14 for 29.99 euros. The first tests are now available – and they are consistently positive.
For the tester on IGN.com the back button extension for the PS4 controller could even provide an indication of the usability of the PS5 gamepad. Sony promises a number of improvements for the upcoming controller, including haptic feedback. The buttons on the PS4 extension feel high-quality and have a good pressure point. However, when using the extension, the DualShock 4 must be connected to the power one hour earlier than without accessories. In conclusion, it means that the accessories on the controller initially feel strange. After a few days, however, you are completely familiar with the expansion.
The Verge comes to a similar conclusion, the expansion also sees a good alternative to third-party controllers. In addition, the back button extension is priced at 30 euros far cheaper than many of the third-party pro controllers offered for PlayStation 4. The accessories are particularly recommended for fans of action and multiplayer games. (buy now for € 268.80)
