Sony’s terrible soccer / football PS4 controller somehow isn’t coming to the UK

New, 12 comments

The UK is so into football/soccer that a British indie developer recently released a game inspired by the fact that it’s impossible to escape football/soccer. You would think, then, that it’d be the perfect market for the latest ridiculous PS4 controller cooked up somewhere in Sony’s halls. And yet.

Here are some things about the “Limited Edition PlayStation F.C. DualShock 4 wireless controller”:

  • It’s blue
  • It has a penalty area on the touchpad
  • It says “PlayStation FC” on the right handle
  • It has some unspecified tactical gibberish involving the PlayStation symbols on the left

Sony is releasing this deeply silly controller in Europe on September 29th "just in time to celebrate the kick off of another epic season of football on PS4," which makes sense as FIFA 18 is coming out the same day. The controller won’t be available in the UK, though, which doesn’t make sense.

Oh well. Probably for the best.
