The first BF4 branded products begin to appear in stores online.

Battlefield 4 controllers
EA promised a ton of Battlefield 4 branded products, from accessories, to t-shirts, to all sorts of things. The first of those products are beginning to leak into the marketplace, starting with the official Battlefield 4 PS3 and Xbox 360 controllers.

The new controllers are designed by PDP and are available for purchase on Amazon (for $50 each). The custom controller design includes some interesting features, such as zinc alloy triggers, new “SmartTrack” analog sticks, programmable buttons, illuminated Battlefield 4 logo, and more. Note that these aren’t official controllers from Microsoft and Sony with a BF4 sticker on them, although those are coming in the near future.



This is just the beginning, as PC and accessory maker Razer will be revealing its BF4 branded products very soon. These include mice, keyboards, controllers, headsets, mousepads, and more. EA will also offer assorted Battlefield 4 clothing and gear, such as t-shirts, hoodies, caps, messenger bags, keychains and all sorts of junk stuff. There’s even a novel in the works.

      These are NOT official Microsoft/Sony controllers. They are 3rd party “officially branded” bf4 controllers. Not a DualShock3 with Sixaxis. They are made by PDP, a gaming periphrial company similar to MadCatz or Razer. Thats why the PS3 controller looks identical to the Xbox360 one, and they are NOT wireless. Just to clear up any confusion.

      NOT OFFICAL SONY/MICROSOFT PRODUCTS

      YES “OFFICIALLY BRANDED” BF4 LOGO ON KNOCKOFF CONTROLLER.

      Seriously? Competitive players e.g., much better response time and its not a battery drainer. Wired controller + monitor = win

    Pro controllers always have wires and outperform the standard controllers. Thumbsticks are way more precise and buttons are way more responsive. I’m currently using a Fusion Pro A controller. You’ll never understand until you spend $80 plus bucks to try them out…

        The consoles can’t handle “pro” players or “pro” things.

      Please don’t let just a few people ruin the reputation of us ALL. I am a huge PC gamer and although I do think PCs are just better, that is my opinion and I still respect that people enjoy playing on consoles.

    Those controllers look like garbage, and looking at the other products that PDP has made I can’t imagine them being any good. Anyone have anything good to say about those “afterglow” controllers?

      They’re pretty good if you ask me, i’ve had two now and not because the first wore out, my dogs are chewers :). It’s a smaller controller than the normal 360 and the analogs are quite touchy, in a good way. If you use a mic it will make a buzzing noise every time your controller vibrates though sk I play with it off. You don’t here it but others do.

    The Xbox 360 controller is licensed by Microsoft. (The PS3 controller is not licensed.)

    Well, my original ps3 controller passed away :( today my fiancee bought me onw of these…cant complain! True, is not wireless, i felt a little disappointed too but when i tried…triggers feel so cool, zinc alloy! Feels resistant, covered with rubber, piano black details, logos and that stuff looks cool though! Very ergonomic, looks a like as the 360 but feels different, oh and hasnt the capabilty to tur on the console, at least on ps3, the wire is long enough and it is so light, also has been designed in a way that the wire doesnt bug you, a really great bargain you will get with this controller, has vibration function too

    I bought on of these for my 360. It worked well i was amazed until the thing started to aim down n shoot on its own while vibration or any sudden movement i made. It was great while it lasted wouldn’t buy another one. Better off making your own. But thanks for the idea of using the wheel buttons:) lol.
