    I was hoping for something closer to the Xbox Elite, at least in looks and customization. These don't offer that level of features, you'd think they could at least make them look a little sleeker. I guess maybe the features are worth it for some hardcores and/or pro gamers. I saw it mentioned somewhere that one or both are wired because in competitions with a lot of people the bluetooth interference can cause control lag, etc. Would still think wired would be optional, not required.

    Umm....any wireless controller can be played wired. Not sure why you'd limit it to wired ONLY.....

    Looks like I'll be passing on this. Wow.

    Well on teh one site it says "USB cable for compatibility with all PS4 systems". The only time you should need to do the USB connection is to pair the controller so that is a necessity, but I just can't understand why they would ever make these wired. That would be truly asinine.

    I also don't see the front light, which is required for use with PSVR.

    Presto Bitch!!

    Good catch Spike, no front lights... good for me, bad for VR users.

    Here's the pic I was talking about. So weird with that metal coaxial style nub at the end, but I think it's an always wired controller, judging by the text I circled.

    When I saw the Gamespot article last night and the headline "Pro Elite Controller for PS4" I was so freaking happy. Then I read the article and was completely deflated.

    I don't understand why Sony doesn't make their own like MS. Hardware is Sony's damn specialty. Surely they've seen how in demand and successful the Xbox Elite Controller is??

    I can never go back to playing a shooter with the R3 button. I just can't. Having that button turned off and re-mapped to a paddle is the best thing ever.

    That one looks better. Don't know anything about the company. Looks like a possible alternative though.
