 当你在 PS4 上玩游戏时,可以说大部分按键工作都是由拇指和食指承担的。现在,索尼为 DualShock 4 手柄推出了一款附件,为手柄增加了两个可编程的按钮,从而让你其余的手指也能加入到游戏中来。
这个小工具被形象地称为 “后侧键连接板”(Back Button Attachment),它通过 PS4 的附件端口跟手柄连接,在手柄的背部增加了 3 个交互项目。其中 2 个是游戏按钮,看上去用户可以轻松用中指进行敲击,而且每个按钮都可以进行编程,从而具备任何普通按钮的功能。

此外,附件上还配有一块小小的 OLED 屏幕,可以提供有关按钮设置的 “实时” 信息。虽然用户似乎没有太多必要了解那些信息或是展示给其他人看,但是,嘿。而且,屏幕本身也是一个切换键,让用户可以在不同的配置之间进行切换或是即时改变设置选项。
