Nacon's Asymmetric Wireless Controller | Coming this Spring.

Tuesday 5 March 2019

Spring is only a few weeks away (for people like me who go by the astronomical seasons) and I have another post on another controller from Nacon to tell you all about that shall be released this spring! This one is more in the style of an actual PS4 controller and is around the same price as the typical PS4 controllers you can get. The biggest difference with this controller the layout but it will help gamers like me who prefer one analog stick higher than the other feel comfier playing, having the analog stick so close together on the normal PS4 controllers can make my hands ache. The other difference is that you will need to plug in the Bluetooth USB receiver for wireless play, it's given the name asymmetric due to the layout for the analog sticks and the complementary ergonomics that provide gamers like me an alternative way to play on the PS4. The features this controller includes/comes with are:

  • A functional touchpad
  • Battery level indicator button on the back of the controller
  • Rechargeable battery
  • USB Bluetooth Receiver
  • Micro USB cable 

The feature that interests me most about this controller is the battery level indication button, when it comes to games I'm always interrupted my gameplay in order to see how much I have left so having a button I can just press without ruining gameplay is a big thumbs up for me. The Bluetooth receiver wouldn't bother me much especially when it allows you to play from 7 meters away, I've used controllers that have needed a receiver before and there it makes no difference from not needing one, you just have to remember to plug it back in if you ever take it out to use both the front USB ports of the PS4.

The finish on the controller looks matt whereas the PS4 controllers I have are more glossy, but being matt will make it better for grip as the gloss effects on my controllers often make my hands slip when gaming, the analog sticks have a cute little design on each of them, they're different from each other, I think this is for grip as they look a lot like an old pair of thumb grips I used to use so you won't have to worry about purchasing thumb grips. From looking at Nacon's brand it's clear they care about players comfort and style, they keep it simple and are also able to make the controllers look stylish at the same time, you will be able to enjoy the use of playing this via PC too.
