Sony reveals Back Button attachment for DualShock 4

This morning, Sony announced a “Back Button” add-on attachment for the DualShock 4 that we never knew we wanted.

The $40 accessory adds a pair of pro-style customizable buttons onto the rear of the controller that can be mapped to any other digital functions that already exist on the DualShock 4. The attachment includes an LED display for users to set-up the mapping too, programmable profiles, and a pass through for the headphone jack.

The Back Button attachment will obviously miss the Holiday shopping season, but will be available soon on January 23rd, 2020. Check out the trailer/product shots below.
