It seems that Sony have forgotten how to design good looking controllers, because after the Destiny 2 DualShock 4, they’ve now announced an equally awful PlayStation F.C. limited edition controller.
They’ve taken a blue controller, slapped some PlayStation symbols on one hand grip as though they were tactics patterns, a PlayStation F.C. crest on the other and embossed some penalty area lines onto the touchpad.
Best of all, while they proclaim that it will be available “across the region” on 29th September – you know, just in time for the football season… which start in August – this excludes the UK, Australia and New Zealand. It looks terrible, and they’ve decided that only mainland Europe are even vaguely likely to buy it.
Meanwhile, over in the land of Xbox, they’re sticking to the classier side of controller design. Sure, some of their colour combos are a bit weird – I’m not sure I like my combat green with orange thumbstick balls controller, but it was cheap – and their Tech series do fall into the “just put some lines and random symbols on it” class of design, but then you also have the gorgeous Shadow series, the most recent of which was announced last week and looks like this:
Oh, and you will be able to buy it in the UK as well, which is nice of them.
