Introducing the Onyx
HORI's "Onyx" PlayStation 4 controller is out next week in the UK. The pad's part of a reasonably wide range of third party devices, but this one's more of a "pro" option. It's got all the functionality that you'd expect, and unlike some other licensed controllers, it doesn't have to be connected via USB to work. Can't say we're...
Ladies and gentlemen, we present you the most bizarre PlayStation peripheral we've ever laid our sweaty hands on: the HORI Dragon Quest Slime Controller. This Japan-exclusive PlayStation 4 controller takes the form of a slime -- a monster from Square Enix's Dragon Quest series. For those who don't know, the slime is essentially the...
He slimed me
Much like with the PlayStation 2 back in the day, Hori has announced a Slime DualShock 4 for a new generation. The rotund peripheral – designed to tie-in to the release of Dragon Quest XI on the PlayStation 4 – includes all of the features that you'd expect, including (incredibly) a touchpad, mono speaker, gyroscope, and headphone...
Say goodbye to the rear touchpad
Veteran Japanese manufacturer Hori recently announced that it's making a new grip accessory for the PlayStation Vita, and it seems pretty darn handy. The grip adds R2, L2, R3, and L3 functionality to Sony's handheld, supposedly making it a great fit for Remote Play sessions. It looks rather comfortable, too. The...
King of the Kontrollers
Capcom may have slightly fumbled the launch of Street Fighter V, but there's no denying that the title is a formidable addition to the company's long and proud lineage in a genre that it has arguably dominated since the early 90s. However, as any truly dedicated player will tell you over and over, the interface you use to...
PC elitists love to remind us how they're superior gamers, spending their days updating drivers and replacing their thermal paste. Unfortunately for them, playing on the ol' desktop precludes them from enjoying some of the PlayStation 4's exclusive titles – but they should feel right at home with this licensed Hori controller...
Asymmetrical sticks FTW
Data shows that a lot of ex-Xbox fans have made the switch to the PlayStation 4 this generation, but not everyone's happy with the placement of the DualShock 4's analogue sticks. While many of us have grown up with Sony's symmetrical layout, others are more familiar with the asymmetrical format adopted by Microsoft – but...
Make some room
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd, the sequel to SEGA’s strangely popular rhythm game, may be packed with dainty melodies and twee vocaloid voices – but there’s nothing elegant about its monstrous PlayStation 3 peripheral. The optional Hori manufactured extra – which rivals the first boss from Team ICO classic Shadow of the...
As has become common-place for any major fighting game release, Hori has announced a bunch of new Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 fighting sticks
The stick's are due to launch in Japan on November 17th alongside the game. The PS3 version will retail for ¥13,800. There's no word of a Western release just yet.
If you're a member of the so-called 'gaming elite', you're probably of the mindset that first-person shooters can't be played on anything other than a mouse and keyboard
Thankfully Hori's got your back, with this licensed controller set-up for the PlayStation 3. Entitled the Tactical Assault Commander 3, the peripheral bundle consists of an optical right-handed mouse and a keypad. The pad even..
Are you ever out and about thinking to yourself: "Damn, I wish I could play the Playstation 3 right now
" Probably not many of you. But for the few of you in that situation, Hori's got your back with this ridiculous Sony-licensed LCD docking station. The devices attaches a neat little 1,366 x 768 LCD screen and Stereo speakers to your PS3 allowing you to essentially take your system anywhere..
