Now here is a modern day story that will certainly warm your hearts and send tingles down your spine – a PlayStation employee (who is obviously under Sony’s payroll at the end of it all) decided to help out a gamer who suffers from Cerebral Palsy by delivering a custom DualShock 4 controller.
This employee was alerted to the particular gamer’s situation after the gamer contacted PalyStation support, who explained just how the DualShock 4’s touchpad made life difficult for him to enjoy games on the PS4. Peter Byrne, who is based in New Jersey, made mention in a Facebook post, “When I use the PlayStation 4 controller my game constantly pauses because my left hand hits the touchpad which is frustrating for me. Around two weeks ago, I decided to message PlayStation support and they gave this email address and said tell them my issue and wait for a response.”
Alex Nawabi answered this call, who then went ahead by conjuring a custom one-of-a-kind controller which would disable the touchpad, and a button located at the back of the controller would replace it. It was Nawabi’s first ever attempt at something of this nature, as he happens to be in PlayStation’s retail marketing operations.
Peter was obviously touched by what Nawabi did, sharing later on, “I honestly got choked up reading the letter as I did not expect anything like this to happen. Mr. Nawabi really cared about my situation and did this on his own time to make my experience better. I honestly can’t thank him enough for everything he did for me. Thank you Mr. Nawabi it really means a lot too me!”
Nawabi remained humble as he started to receive much words of support and praise, saying, “Really didn’t expect this. Thank you all for the kind words. I’m eternally grateful. Seeing how happy he is, and how stoked his mom got, has me in tears. Please keep in mind that the Research and Development team at PlayStation is filled with some absolutely astounding individuals who wake up every day and try to come up with a solution for everyone. What I did only works for a single individual and it should not undermine their work in any way. I cannot stress this enough. Without them, we wouldn’t even be close to what we are today. If you’re not aware, they’ve recently added more accessibility settings that let you remap buttons to help with a large portion of needs. Their team members are the true MVPs.I’ve always cared, I always will care.”

If you were one of those who happen to grow up in the 1980s, surely you would have come across the likes of the Nintendo Entertainment System, or NES for short in many homes of your friends and contemporaries, so much so that you bugged your parents to get you one as well so that you can be with the “in” crowd. In fact, the NES proved to be quite the tool that kept you glued in front of the TV regardless of how the weather is on the outside, and now that you are all grown up with an Xbox One, PS4 and Wii U in your home, how about rolling back the years for your little one with the $35.99 Nintendo Entertainment System Backpack?
You would definitely feel as though this is one backpack that is full of power, where the custom zipper pulls do happen to resemble that of controllers, and there are dimensional details located right on the outside as well. In addition, there will be adjustable and padded shoulder straps for comfort, making this piece of officially-licensed Nintendo merchandise a must-have the moment you lay your eyes on it. It has a maximum capacity of 50 lbs. And is made from 100% PU. Best of all is, nostalgia will “power” it rather than a power supply.

It has been a more or less a couple of years since the Corsair M65 was released, and back then, such a gaming mouse certainly made waves as it did not break the bank and yet came with its fair share of gaming capability.

To sweeten the deal even further, this is one gaming mouse from Corsair that is touted to boast of the highest DPI ever from the company.
Just how high can the resolution go? We are looking at a 12,000 dpi optical sensor to get the job done, which should be more than enough to ensure that every single twitch of your hand will result in a corresponding movement on the screen itself. The advanced 12,000 dpi optical sensor will not stand alone, as it is accompanied by a revolutionary surface calibration tuning utility and high-precision switches, ensuring that the M65 PRO RGB will build on the original Corsair M65’s legacy when it comes to durability and comfort, at the same time include the latest in-mouse sensor and customization technology.

There is also an advanced weight tuning system that enables the gamers to adjust the mouse’s center of gravity to match their play style; where lighter is required for fast-deadly precision and heavier for decisive movements.

When you’re playing console games and the only interaction between you and the game is with the controller, you need to have one you don’t mind holding for 6 hours at a time. Most of the ones that come with game systems are made for the masses, meaning they’re made to be the ideal size for most people. This normally means if you have big hands or small hands, you’re going to have a harder go of it.
If you’re like me and have huge hands, those controllers are not comfortable after the first hour or two. The grips you hold on to just aren’t long enough, and because it’s what comes standard, we don’t think of trying to find ways to make it better. These PlayBudz Grips seem like they might make your gaming experience a bit more comfortable in that they will let those of us with Sasquatch hands easily wrap our fingers around the controller without leaving a pinkie or two to dangle off the back.
These are made of rubber, and come in black, white, purple, blue, red, green, and super saiyan yellow. You can mix and match or buy a solid set for anywhere from $6.99-9.99. They’ll be adjustable as you can push them further on or off to match your hand size. Once your controller breaks, because it will someday, you can just move this to your next controller and carry on like normal, but more comfortably.
