For one reason or another, console gamers have remained stagnant to the ever progressing world around them when it comes to gaming. As a console convert myself, I was jealous of the PC input methods of keyboard and mouse due to the huge accuracy given through high DPI devices.
Well, one company has decided to make my dream come true with the Tactical Assault Commander 4. It isn’t a full keyboard layout, but more the features of what you generally use while gaming. The conventional ‘WASD’ keys are programmed to mimic the left analogue stick while the mouse will mimic the right. The rest of the DualShock controller buttons are mapped out in a more PC gamer friendly orientation. Hori has also added a few additional features to include the ability to walk/ run at the touch of a button and a ‘snipe’ mode to decrease the mouse sensitivity.
As the name suggests, this peripheral is the successor to the Tactical Assault Commander 3. The basic idea was there and it worked well, many reviewers found that mapping an analogue stick to the mouse didn’t work as well as planned. Hopefully, Hori has taken that on board and produced something even better this time around, and I should hope so with pre-order prices starting at around £85.
Will you be interested in purchasing one of these? Maybe as a present to you console gamer family member? Let us know in the comments.
