I’m gonna say right off the bat here, that yes, this Playstation VR aim controller is the ugliest peripheral you have ever seen. However, in VR you won’t even have to look at it, since you will be busy with the virtual world you’re playing in.
Alert the masters! YouTuber OsirisX must be banished, for they have orchestrated an unholy union. OsirisX installed Arch Linux on a PlayStation 4 that still had version 1.76 of its firmware, and then installed Steam on the desktop OS.
Gadget customizer ColorWare already offers custom colors for the Xbox One and PS4 controllers, but it’s also been releasing limited edition graphics for both current gen controllers. Its latest offering is the DualShock 4 Ballistic, an awesome glossy brown fiber graphic inspired by Kevlar.
I’m not sold on virtual reality gaming just yet. It’s interesting to think of the potential, but I want to see some cool games before I spend my cold hard cash. If you are a PS4 fan and have been wanting to get in on the VR action early, today is the day when pre-orders for the Playstation VR Launch Bundle kick off.
Chairs with haptic feedback are nothing new. But they haven’t taken off because they’re usually expensive, not realistic – why would your butt vibrate if you get shot? Plus, the novelty wears off fairly quickly. But a cheap one that you can put together is a different proposition.
The PS4’s touchpad makes it easier to use the console’s virtual keyboard, but nothing beats the real deal, like Nyko’s new Type Pad for the current gen PlayStation.

In 1988, Nintendo hired Sony to make a CD-ROM add-on for the Super Famicom to compete with the Sega Mega CD. But Sony also made a standalone version of this “Super Disc” add-on – a console that could play CD games and media as well as Super Famicom cartridges – and presented it at CES in 1991.
The original PlayStation debuted in 1994. You probably still have one in your closet somewhere. Well, if yours is not working and you want a project, you can turn it into a clock, just like Twitter user @Rurue0111.
Along with death and taxes, one other thing is certain: at any given time somewhere in this wide world of ours there are people arguing about Final Fantasy VII. One of the most argued points is whether or not the PlayStation classic should get a direct sequel.
Back in 2013 we saw an old piano that was turned into a controller for Doom. The Sound Fighter project had a similar goal – play Street Fighter Alpha 3 on pianos. But whereas the Doom hack simply mapped controller buttons to piano keys, Sound Fighter mapped certain moves to chords.
One of the PlayStation 4’s worst flaws is the short battery life of its controller. The DualShock 4’s always on LED exacerbates the issue, but the fact is it has a low-capacity battery. You can buy Nyko’s external battery to alleviate the issue, or you can go the DIY route and follow Redditor AtariXL’s guide.
Console modder MakoMod gave me a blast of nostalgia with this wonderful case mod. His PlayStation case mod features a scale model of Midgar, the technological pizza that Cloud, Barrett, Tifa and Aeris call home.
MakoMod made the case mod over an 8-month period.
Gold-plated Xbox One and PlayStation 4 case mods exist, but obviously they cost thousands of dollars. If you want your gaming system to have some of that shine yet still keep both of your kidneys, you might want to settle for ColorWare’s limited edition 24-karat gold-plated Xbox One controllers.
