I’m a bit of a fan of game-themed controllers but I have to be honest I simply never buy them. I just couldn’t justify paying so much for a game and a controller. I mean I was in Pick n Pay the other day and they were selling Dualshocks for R899. R899 for the worst controller of the generation? I think not.
But if I was forced to buy a new controller then this new one that is launching in Japan alongside The Last of Us would be close to the top of my shopping list. Strangely it has absolutely no Last of Us branding on it but the metallic grey is subtle enough not to be a problem and different enough to stand out when you reach for controllers.
How about you, are you a fan of custom controllers like the one above or gaming-themed ones like this Tomb Raider controller?
