Horipad Lets You Play your PS4 with an Xbox Controller

By James O Malley on at

If you make the switch from Xbox 360 to PS4 then you might find the new controller takes some getting used to. Rather than the have the stick sitting under where your thumb would naturally be, Sony is continuing to insist on its classic Dual-Shock style alignment. But a new third-party controller could be about to change that.

Horipad is a PS4 controller that basically looks a lot like an Xbox controller with Sony's touchpad slapped on to the top.

Sadly the pad isn't a replacement for all of the standard PS4 controller's features: it lacks motion-sensing technology and, shockingly for 2015, is a wired controller. But if you want something that feels like an Xbox, but can play The Last Of Us, this is probably your best option.

The new controller will apparently be coming to Japan in July, and will cost around £25. We'll update when we know more about wider availability. [T3]
