If You’re Still Excited About Sony’s Recent Controller Tieups, Here 2 Absolutely Awesome Pro Gaming PS4 Controllers That Could Tie You In While You Wait

So when I recently talked about the new Dual Shock 4 controller making its way to the market, I was very much convinced that Sony would be true to its word when they said that they would not be creating a pro gaming PS4 controller in the similar vein as the Xbox One’s Elite. Little did I know that there was this little loophole that could forever change the game for the entertainment powerhouse. With its recent launch of the PlayStation...

Why the best iOS game controller is hard to find (but worth it in the end!)

“Why is it so challenging to play popular game titles on my iOS device?” is a very sound question that may have been earshot for mobile gamers in recent years. And while the Android platform enjoys a wide variety of controllers to choose from, finding the best iOS game controller might probably be closer to finding a needle in a haystack. Personally, I find the lack of visible options for the iPhone or iPad a bit disturbing, especially for a brand and...

These PS4 and Xbox controller thumbstick extenders can level-up your FPS game!

When I wrote an article about game controller accessories not long ago,  I knew that one of the stars of this line of products would be PS4 and Xbox controller thumbstick extenders. The reason being was that after some digging, I’ve come to find that the usage of this accessory really does make a difference in FPS gameplay, to the point that the world of eSports has taken notice as well. There is a lot of rationale for having thumbstick extenders as these can have a significant...

Improve your in-game shot with these PS4 Trigger Extenders

Improve your in-game shot with these PS4 Trigger Extenders

To continue from my original article on controller accessories that improve performance, I’d like to talk about another kind of product that is not as prominent physically, but proves to be similarly beneficial. It’s initially hard to understand the purpose of having PS4 trigger extenders, when the stock triggers (L2/R2 butons) provided in the controller are actually pretty good at onset. I personally am extremely comfortable with the stock triggers myself as I’m content with the amount of responsiveness I get from them. In terms...

Price-friendly PS4 Analog Stick covers that deliver the best performance

In a previous article, I had written about how some controller accessories go beyond a seemingly aesthetic effect. Rather, these little products are actually beneficial to your gaming experience by fulling optimizing your grip on/around your controller, such as in this case, PS4 analog stick covers. Furthermore, these controller accessories carry one of the more important benefits to the user – these will improve the overall lifespan and usability of controllers by covering areas of your controller, reducing the wear and tear that...

You deserve the best Android controller out there, and here’s why.

You deserve the best Android controller out there, and here’s why.

Understand this – Gaming on a smartphone is everywhere. It’s in the guy beside you in the bus, the person sitting in the queue, the teenagers grouped together in a table; when you see them holding their phones in landscape orientation while swiping and tapping constantly, you can be sure that there’s a game being played. But we must also understand that gaming, in the purest of forms, deserves to be played using the controls that have become intuitive through our years – by flicking...

Looking for PS4 Controller Housing Shells? Here are 4 Eye-Catching Variants!

Looking for PS4 Controller Housing Shells? Here are 4 Eye-Catching Variants!

The DualShock controller has become the most lauded controller over the past decade (forget about the “banana” design from the PS3 version!).. and to think my reaction to holding a PlayStation controller for the first time in 1996 was less pleasing (More buttons? A pair of rounded pegs at the bottom? I found it weird!). Currently, with the DualShock4, it not only retains the features we’ve come to love (analog sticks, yay!), but also integrates dedicated buttons for in-game options and sharing gaming moments on social media,...

The best arcade sticks you’re lucky to get your hands on

It has been 7 years since Street Fighter 4’s release, and within that period there has been numerous opinions on the best arcade sticks you’re lucky to get that are suited nicely to fighting games. Let’s face it, 7 years is enough time for manufacturers to release multiple iterations of their products, each time finding ways to improve the fighting gamer’s overall experience. It’s in this time frame as well where the average fighting gamer would have found and stuck with the arcade stick for the long term...

Things to consider when buying a computer gaming controller

Things to consider when buying a computer gaming controller

Computer gaming has had a very rich history which dates back to the Atari days in the 70’s. And while the animating sprites and shapes on screen have always been the center of attention, you can’t help but acknowledge two focal points in gaming through the years – the computer gaming platorm and the computer gaming controller. While one encases the chipset, power and graphics that are projected onto our screens, the handiwork and function of the gaming controller is what brings about the gaming...
