Those mini PS4 controllers are coming to North America -- Cuuuute

We touched on Hori's upcoming Mini Wired Gamepad for PlayStation 4 and a number of you fine folks expressed interest in the device for either yourself or your little loved ones. While these controllers were originally announced for Europe, they've since been confirmed for North America, too.

The gamepads are 40 percent smaller than the standard DualShock 4 and they have a 10-foot cable. Sony notes that they do lack a touch pad, light bar, stereo headset jack, speaker, vibration, and motion sensing, but apparently "certain touch pad inputs can be simulated via the left or right sticks."

The Mini Gamepads will be out in the US and Canada "this holiday" for $29.99 USD and $39.99 CAD.

Why would someone think that is cute? O.o

Those bumper buttons look terrible.

I'd get it for the price, it's a lot lower than the DS4.

Sure, its about half the price (you can get them for 50-60euros here), but you know whats gonna happen if you buy cheap stuff like that.

It's gonna feel cheap, it's barely gonna work and will break down soon enough. The only use i would see on it is that D-pad. It might actually be better than the one on the regular controller for 2D fighters. But i can't really be sure. These things are always a gamble.

Hori's stuff usually isn't terrible, just not better than the original. I usually get them when I need a 3rd party accessory.

A wired controller on a ps4.

That's a disturbing sight.

I wonder if it will have at least have a decent battery life span.

Given that it's wired, you will never need to charge.
