New DualShock 4 Back Button Attachment Revealed By Sony (VIDEO)
Despite the reveal that the PlayStation 5 is arriving in Holiday 2020, Sony doesn’t seem quite ready to stop coming up with new and exciting innovations for the PlayStation 4. To that end, Sony has officially announced that the DualShock 4 is getting its own back button attachment that comes with its own set of programmable options.
Announced via a new blog post over on the PlayStation blog, the back button attachment actually grants its users two additional buttons, both of which are programmable and highly tactile. The reveal comes with a short video showing off the attachment’s features. Check it out below:
Here’s a list of the Dual Shock 4 back button attachment’s features courtesy of 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 DualShock 4 back button attachment is slated to release in the US and Canada on January 23, 2020 for $29.99 USD and $39.99 CAD.
