Sony's gone ahead and detailed the mini PlayStation 4 controller that it announced not loo long ago. Manufactured by HORI but officially licensed by the PlayStation maker, the Mini Wired Gamepad is designed with younger players in mind, but we imagine that it could also be a nice fit for those who find the standard DualShock 4 a bit clunky.

As its name suggests, the controller is wired, although the wire itself measures in at a respectable ten feet. Sony says it's 40 per cent smaller than the DualShock 4, and naturally, it comes with all of the same buttons. However, because of its size, it is missing some features, namely a light bar, a headphone jack, a speaker, motion sensors, and vibration. It's retailing at $29.99 in the US, so it comes in cheaper than the regular DualShock 4.
