Controllers have certainly evolved from "back in the day" and with the current market teeming with pro options for console players to use, it's no wonder that Sony would be looking for any and every way to capitalize on that. In their latest peripheral move, Team PlayStation revealed a new attachment that adds additional programming options to the DualShock 4 controller. 

As seen in the video above, the design is sleek and meant to be a natural addition to the already familiar controller. According to Sony: 

  • 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.

The new DualShock 4 back button attachment will be launching for $29.99 in US and Canada on January 23, 2020. Learn more here
