So, I saw this on the Playstation Blog today - an officially licensed “Performance” controller will soon be available for PS4.
Now I’m someone who likes having the latest technology with a big soft spot for the look and design of the stuff I buy. When it comes to video game hardware, this is especially true. For instance, I may have 7 Dualshock 4 controllers of various colors…(or hey, I may not).
Now I personally prefer the symmetric stick layout of Dualshock controllers over Xbox controllers and found that the company behind this new controller in the above article sells a similar controller with the stick layout I prefer.
So this brings me to my question. I find the idea of a customizable controller (e.g. analog sticks of various shapes and sizes that you can switch out, remappable and removable back paddle ‘buttons’, etc.) very appealing, and one with extra buttons just… However…I don’t like the idea of having a competitive advantage (for PvP games at least) coming from the controller that I use, and many of the additional features this controller provides seems like it can offer such a thing. Should I deny myself such a nice piece of hardware for petty moral matters like ‘fairness’ lol? I’m curious Waypointers, what are your thoughts about non-standard controllers that can offer players an advantage?
