    Mini Hori PS4 Controller?

    Do you think the PlayStation 4’s DualShock 4 controller is too big? Then Hori’s new adorable-looking Wired Mini Gamepad might just be the controller for you.The miniature controller works like a regular DualShock, with all the buttons and triggers that you’d expect. Even the touch pad is there, sort of: there’s a dedicated button to simulate a click on top of the controller, and a “TP” button on the bottom that lets you use control sticks to simulate the gestures. And while it’s a wired controller, the cord is three meters long (or just shy of 10 feet), so unless you’ve got a really huge living room, it should reach your couch just fine.
    The new controller is the latest in a series of officially licensed PS4 controllers that Sony is releasing, following the first pair, which launched last December. Along with the Hori Wired Mini Gamepad, there are also new options from @PLAY and Nacon, which are decidedly less interesting, but worth a look if you really hate Sony’s own controller option for some reason.

    So, you're probably wondering why I am even posting this. Well, look at the controller. Does it look eerily similar to a Switch joycon to you?

    It's not made by Sony, it's a Hori product, but still. Not really a big deal, but I find it kind of interesting. I've always wondered if the Switch continues to sell well if Sony could follow suit with another portable or some sort of hybrid-capable console down the road.

    Floppy Floppenson and I don't go together very well... So I'll help you out on this one

    I don't think there's any coincidence. Maybe they used the Joycons as inspiration or something.
    It really does look like them Joycons, how peculiar.
    And watch as they'll call them Play-con controllers.

    Guess Horizons decided they needed to emulate the most uncomfortable controller to ever disgrace mankind/s

    I think the Dualshock 4 controllers are pretty comfortable. I wouldn't want them smaller.

    Yeah, for real. I'm just thinking to myself, "who asked for this?".
