Even with all the success of the PS5, Sony still doesn’t seem very interested in launching a solution to include more players on the console, as Microsoft did with the Xbox’s adaptive controller. So, some of its most creative gamers are creating their own solutions, like an amazing accessory created by Akaki Kuumeri, which lets you play DualSense with one hand:
The accessory looks like a shambles, but seeing it working in practice, there is a very creative solution to reach all the buttons with one hand. The main part of the adaptation fits into the left analog stick and assembles a frame to move the button using a base that you can rest on the table or leg. It certainly takes practice to get the hang of it, but Kuumeri shows that he can play smoothly this way.
The base model of the accessory also fits over the L1 and L2 buttons, bringing them to the side of the upper right buttons to reach them all with the same finger. Another very interesting part of the project is that reaching for the D-Pad can be optional, with a part of the accessory that can be docked or not, depending on the player’s preference.
The coolest thing is that the entire accessory can be made with a 3D printer, and Kuumeri made all the project for download, so you can try doing it at home out of curiosity or to help someone in need.
Nvidia is, in a sense, giving away over a hundred games when you buy a GeForce RTX 40 graphics card. In fact, the gift comes with a Game Pass subscription
Nvidia has decided to update gifts for buyers of GeForce RTX 40 video cards, but there are no games in the new set. Or there is, but it depends on how you look at it.
The bottom line is that when purchasing a 3D card, the user will receive three months of Game Pass subscription as a gift. That is, access to more than a hundred games for free. That is, in a sense, we can say that more than a hundred games are included as a gift, but only for three months.
In addition, customers receive a free three-month subscription to the GeForce NOW Priority cloud gaming service. True, it’s not very clear why the owner of a fresh RTX 40 video card needs cloud gaming, but it’s still a gift.
Such gifts come with all RTX 40 cards, but, as always, not in all regions and not even at all retailers. This particular promotion is available in North America and most of Europe. Buyers in Latin America and most of Asia will only receive a Game Pass subscription.
The world’s first mini-PC with a processor like the Asus ROG Ally game console. Edge Z1 is based on Ryzen Z1
AMD earlier this year introduced the Ryzen Z1 and Z1 Extreme hybrid mobile processors, designed for portable consoles. It turned out that a mini-PC with such an APU will soon appear on the market.
The model is called Edge Z1 and is based, as the name suggests, on the base Ryzen Z1 APU. This, for example, underlies the younger version of Asus ROG Ally.
Let’s remember that the Ryzen Z1 has six cores with a frequency of up to 4.9 GHz and an iGPU Radeon 740M with 128 stream processors. The performance of this APU in games is not particularly high due to the rather weak graphics core, but later there will be a version on the Ryzen Z1 Extreme, which is generally the same as the Ryzen 7 7840U.
The ETA Prime channel tested a prototype mini-PC, but since this is a completely ordinary product, it is unlikely that the serial one will be much different. In addition to the mentioned processor, we can note two slots for RAM, a slot for SSD, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2 and USB-C, USB 3, USB 2.0, RJ45 and HDMI ports. Dimensions are not specified, but the PC is very compact.
There is no release date or price yet, but the manufacturer plans to initially enter some kind of crowdfunding platform.
Steam has added support for Sony DualShock and DualSense gamepads
Valve has added support for Sony DualShock and DualSense gamepads in the latest Steam client update, and has also integrated identity APIs to give developers and players the tools and information they need.
In addition, Valve has also added controller-related filters. Players can choose games that support DualShock and DualSense.
Last year, controllers were used in more than three billion Steam gaming sessions:
- 60% – Xbox controller;
- 27% – controllers for PlayStation;
- the remaining 13% is shared between the Steam Deck, Nintendo Switch Pro and hundreds of other controllers.
Four years ago, during the same period (until November 2019), there were 990 million gaming sessions with controllers:
- 76% – Xbox controllers;
