Console Modder Creates One-Handed PS4 And Xbox One Controllers


Recommended Posts





Ben Heck of element14, who takes requests and creates videos for assorted console modifications, recently created one-handed PlayStation 4 and Xbox One controllers.

The full walkthrough of Heck's PlayStation 4 controller creation will premiere on element14 on Friday, but you can check out a video offering a preview below. Heck was able to relocate the L1 and L2 buttons to the right side of the controller and move the left control stick to the back of the right side of the controller to be manipulated by holding the controller against your leg.

Heck also created a one-handed Xbox One controller for the Able Gamers Foundation which is currently being displayed at SXSW.

Sounds Legit.

Well considering how hard it is to just find a controller where you can remap buttons and axis orientation, the fact that a "one handed" controller has never been done before doesn't surprise me.


It's a matter of demand and supply.
