The PS4 DualShock 4 Back Button Attachment is a great upgrade at a great price

The PS4's DualShock 4 controller now has two more buttons with the addition of the Back Button Attachment. The $30 accessory is the perfect complement to the original controller and adds two buttons. The design is a little bulky, but it's still a great accessory for the price.

This thing is getting stellar reviews. What would be it's best use (I am not a competative online gamer).

I'm planning to get one, as I said from the beginning it will be great for them I play shooting games and have to aim and hold my breath at the same time using the right stick for both. Same for running with the left stick and then having to press and hold the same stick to sprint. I'm always in fear that the stick will snap when I do so. Plus for the price of thirty dollars I'd that is still the retail price o the U.S. then it's not a steep price to pay for added comfort and continued longevity of the conteoller.

You can let your thumbs on the sticks all the time. Useful in most games.

For me it will be using them as the L1 and R1 buttons. This will eliminate the index finger movement, going from L2 and R2.

We're apparently getting a whole bunch of them at work, so likely I'll be able to snag one to bring home. Sometimes my job has nice perks.:)

PS5 controllers will have this built in. It will allow ps4 controllers to have the same functionality and work with the PS5.

Do you have a link to this information? Or are you just speculating?

Pretty cool. I’ll probably pick up two.

Contrary to the article tho, the biggest advantages of the ms elite controller and the paddle buttons but the ability to control the expo curves of the sticks (response time) and store a second profile to a button position so you can be snappy for FPS games and slower for racing type games or whatever at the flick of a switch. You can also adjust the throw length of the triggers on the Elite. So doesn’t really put them on the same page but still - seems like a great ds4 add-on.

deadfrag410d ago

Very true!But people that are saying contrary and putting this in the same level has having a Pro Controller most likely never player with a Pro Controller like the Elite or the Astro!

The word "great" was used twice in a single sentence. Was it too hard for the author to come up with another adjective? Okay, Gensie, this might help you out. http://adjectivesstarting.c...

SamPao410d ago

I think that was on purpose. The usage of the same adjective twice gives the sentence a tone that cannot be achieved by using different ones. It gives the word more focus and is also very often used in this case.
So yeah
