Nacon, a brand that makes controllers for the PC and PlayStation 4 among other things such as Mice, Keyboards, Audio peripherals, Gaming chairs, and various other gaming items since 2014. Nacon has announced a new officially licensed wireless controller for the PlayStation 4.
In this day and age where there exist a dozen PlayStation 4 controllers of different types at different prices there is a new entry on the way. The NACON Asymmetric Wireless Controller is going to be a wireless controller that will come with a rechargeable battery and a USB receiver which will be required to provide a Bluetooth connection apparently, the USB receiver reports uninterrupted transmission of up to 7 meters from the console. It is not clear yet that if the controller will work with a PC with either the included Dongle or any other 3rd Party Bluetooth Interface.
The controller shall feature an Asymmetric layout with analog sticks which seem to be covered with rubbered and are concave, this should help users gain a little more grip. The controller also comes along with a small led indicator strip at the bottom of the seemingly large textured touchpad to notify users of the battery level, there is also a button at the back that let’s user check battery levels without exiting the game. The controller has a 3.5 mm headset jack to support ‘audio and chat’ functionalities. There is also a mini USB port at the top for charging. It only has a 4-way D-PAD, unfortunately (Sorry Fighting Game fans).
The controller is officially licensed by Sony for the PlayStation 4. It will be available in the Q1 2019 and will retail at a price of $59.99.
