The new Mini Wired Gamepad for PS4 looks like the perfect travel companion

PS4 Mini Wired Gamepad

If you've been holding out for a cheaper, more compact PlayStation 4 controller for the young one in your household, you're in luck. This week, Sony announced on the PlayStation Blog that Hori's new Mini Wired Gamepad for PS4 will be available in the US and Canada this holiday season for $29.99 -- half the price of a standard controller.

The Mini Wired Gamepad is 40% smaller than the DualShock 4, but still features all of the same joysticks and buttons as its wireless counterpart. The only button that the Mini Wired Gamepad is missing is the touch pad, but Sony says that many of those inputs (which are often inessential) can be simulated with the right or left joysticks.

This ultra-cute tiny PS4 controller is a great option for children and the small-handed

 If you like playing console games with the younger generation, you may have come across the issue of their tiny hands being unable to perform certain combos, reach certain buttons easily, and so on. While this makes them satisfying opponents, it might be better if they had a controller more suited to their physiology. Well, good thing there is one! Read More

Sony and reMarkable’s dueling e-paper tablets are strange but impressive beasts

 Poor paper. It’s in that ironic category where those who love it the most are the ones trying their hardest to replace it. Case in point: Sony and reMarkable, a pair of companies as unalike as you’re likely to find, yet with the shared mission of making a device that adequately serves the same purpose a few sheets of paper do.

PlayStation VR: New model

On Monday, Sony updated the PlayStation VR FAQ on the PlayStation Blog to reflect the fact that a new model of the hardware will be launching in the near future. Dubbed CUH-ZVR2, the updated model features a number of welcome changes, including a modified design with stereo headphone cables integrated into the headset and what Sony refers to as a "slimmer, streamlined" connection cable that won't be as obtrusive as the original model.

‘Knack 2’ review: Growing up

Knack 2 review

Sony has a long history of successful mascot-driven platformer games, from Spyro the Dragon to Crash Bandicoot to Ratchet and Clank and Jak and Daxter. In 2013, with the launch of the PS4, the company tried to add a new name to that list: Knack. Unfortunately, Knack was a bust. Not only was the character itself unappealing, but the game was lambasted for its repetitiveness and uninteresting story.

When Sony announced that Knack was getting a sequel at the fourth annual PlayStation Experience event last December, PS4 owners let out a collective groan. But against all odds, Knack 2 manages to hurdle over the low bar set by its predecessor and establishes itself as a solid (if unspectacular) entry into the competitive genre of 3D platformers.
