Sony Announces Mini PS4 Controller for Kids

The officially licensed controller will feature a smaller design.

Sony has revealed a mini PlayStation 4 controller aimed at children.

The officially licensed peripheral, dubbed the Mini Wired Gamepad, was revealed in a post on PlayStation Blog, where the full design of the fun-sized gamepad is showcased. The controller is made by Hori, known for their fighting sticks and controller designs for a variety of platforms.

The PlayStation 4 Mini Wired Gamepad is 40 percent smaller than the regular DualShock 4, sacrificing the standard controller’s touch pad and light bar. Certain touch-based inputs will still be simulated by the smaller left and right sticks.

Sony’s product is aimed towards young children, allowing them to handle the controller with ease due to its smaller design. The controller is wired with a 10-foot cable, and will launch this holiday in the U.S. and Canada for a suggested retail price of $30 USD/$40 CAD.

Sony recently revealed a Star Wars Battlefront II PS4 Pro bundle, which will release alongside the game on November 17.
