From some angles it looks like a PS4 controller and the green color is aweful. What a freak..

PLASTICA-MAN1538d ago (Edited 1538d ago )

They look like the counterfeits of PS2 controllers you find in local stores of countries which sell counterfeits (of course). I also think they lack the triggers rumble motors. 100% pass. Thanks. I would opt for the original one, looks better and is more secure.

Yokan1538d ago

Not trying to be a d*ck but Im want to know if Im wrong, is counterfeat or counterfeit?

famoussasjohn1538d ago

yokan - Correct spelling is "counterfeit".

jrshankill1538d ago

from the article

"Aside from the size and wired features, the new controller should function the same as the standard Xbox One Wireless controller (including the force feedback rumble)."

Please read articles before commenting.

PLASTICA-MAN1538d ago (Edited 1538d ago )

@ jrshankill I was talking about TRIGGERs' IMPULSE (the new added feature for the Xbone controller, which alone, justifies its purchase), not the MAIN "force feedback rumble" that even counterfeits controllers have.

Please read comments before commenting.

Seeing how small the controller is compared to the original one, I really doubt they are able to add 2 ultra mini rumble motors for the triggers since this is not only very unlikely feasible due to the shrunk size, but also the vibrations will be very unoticbale again because of the tiny size of those new 2 motors which will kill the total sense and purpose behind their concept and would be irrelevant. They have to confirm that explicitly.

Color is ok.

Shape is ugly.

XanderZane1538d ago (Edited 1538d ago )

It says "Full rumble effects" on the Amazon website. Which means ALL the rumbles from the original controller is in this mini controller.

I want one, but I want it wireless and I want it in the U.S. Don't want to buy it from Europe. That green color is pretty bad though. They should have used Blue or Red.

Nice little (pun intended) alternative to the original. And they are already available in some locations.

I cant attach an image but they were found at walmart in the black and green colors as well as a red one and a blue one.

the price on the shelf is $39.96

The ps4 controller looks like the xbox controller more like

nX1537d ago


The PS4 controller looks like the PS1 controller, at that time there wasn't even a Xbox on the market...

Gunstar751537d ago

Whatever!! Hahaha! The truth is the truth... Look with your eyes

which also looks a 360 controller from certain angles. so basically the mini XB1 controller looks like and xbox 360 controller, from certain angles.

smellslikeralph1538d ago

i love the color green but these controllers just look cheaply made IMO

OldDude1538d ago (Edited 1538d ago )

"From some angles it looks like a PS4 controller and the green color is aweful. What a freak.."

Except for the offset analog sticks, completely different triggers and overall shape, and the lack of a touchpad, yeah its quite a rip-off of the PS4 controller. Troll harder.

KwietStorm1538d ago

LOL man why are you people so sensitive over nothing? He didn't say it was a ripoff of anything. But st a glance, yes, it has a similar overall shape to the Dualshock 4, as opposed to the standard Xbox controller. So what?

OldDude1538d ago (Edited 1538d ago )

Mirror? By your logic every controller is like the PS4 controller then. They have the same general shape. "You Guys" imply that everyone rips off Sony when in fact they hardly ever innovate. Its nothing like a DS4.

SilentGuard1538d ago

Ahh, no, it looks nothing like the PS4 controller. Resembles the 360 controller more than the One controller.

babadivad1538d ago

It does a little like a PS family controller. But why are they making this?? If anything the X1 controller is too damned small!! No idea why they went (slightly but noticeable) smaller than the 360 controller. I mean, who is going to buy this thing, toddlers? Wake me when they make an Adult sized controller.

*Deeeep Breath*

Ok rant over.

ITPython1538d ago

There is quite a lot of contours that are almost identical to a PS4 controller.

Although the fact it is wired will probably turn many people away.

user56695101538d ago

i dont get it aint the ps4 controller a copy of xbox controllers. huh yea

rule number one on n4g. no matter what it always have to do with ps, unless is negative, then we blame it on the other guy

equal_youth1538d ago

they might not even be bad if they get the official license. so i will keep my eyes out for this one and maybe if i stumble upon one i will get it.

jrshankill1538d ago

Yeah. Good to have a choice too. Cheaper alternatives are nice for backup controllers.

My_Outer_Heaven1538d ago (Edited 1538d ago )

Looks like a hybrid of dualshock 3 and 4 with the light bar being removed for a wire.

haha... "the Derick Zoolander controller for kids who can't play good"

Mikefizzled1538d ago

How can we be expected to teach children to learn how to game if they can't even hold the controller?

Kingdomcome2471538d ago

Haha. I was going to say something along those lines. I love Zoolander.

Mikefizzled1538d ago

I didn't like it when I first watched it when I was 9 or 10. Now I'm 19 and I love it dearly.

MRMagoo1231538d ago

you cant go wrong if you have ben stiller and owen wilson, pretty much any movie with either one of those guys is a classic imo.

matrixman921538d ago

thats some circa 2002 madcatz stuff right there
