Sony is releasing what appears to be a must-have item for any PlayStation gamer: the DualShock 4 Back Button Attachment. The accessory is pretty self-explanatory, in that it adds two additional inputs (with tactile feedback) to the rear of the controller. There’s also a high-fidelity OLED screen for displaying button assignments. It was likely influenced by the success of Microsoft’s highly customizable Xbox Elite controllers, which feature four removable paddles.

The two back buttons can map up to 16 different actions such as triangle, circle, R1 and R2 to name a few and provide amazing tactile feedback, so you can jump and slide without missing a beat. The attachment also features an integrated OLED display that provides real time information around button assignments.
