This PS4 Football Controller Is Unpleasant To Behold

By "unpleasant to behold", we mean this thing is ugly as hell.

If you managed to tear yourself away from staring blankly at the image above for long enough to make it to these words, well done. I am not sure even its own mother could look away from its hideousness, let alone love it.

To unofficially coincide with the release of FIFA 18 , Sony have released a special edition controller that has basically been fumbled together on Adobe Fireworks on someone’s break.

Here are all the things I hate about it:

– It is blue. Football pitches are green.
– The random tactical squiggles that are supposed to mean something, I guess?
– The PlayStation FC logo is PES 4 levels of lazy customisation.
– The superimposed, hideous penalty box on the touchpad.
– It is not shaped like an actual football.
– Everything.

This special DualShock 4 will be available from 29th September in Europe but, for some reason, not the UK. Small mercy, really. I can’t wait to see what they pull out for Wimbledon next year. Circle button as an orange? Or maybe the gamepad grunts at you every time you select something? Actually, I am totally there for that.


Get paid.
