This one-off of a PlayStation controller was created by Sunflex in partnership with Square Enix for the upcoming MMO Final Fantasy XIV. I’m sure it functions nicely, but it’s really ugly. I think the handgrips kill me. A commenter on the Kotaku source story ‘shopped the controller picture to show that they were thinking the exact same thing I was. The numbers on the buttons (and below the “select” and “start” ones) are so generic looking that I feel like they didn’t even bother to make this thing attractive.
The controller will be available on the day of launch for Final Fantasy XIV, September 30th. This is the first item to come from a licensing agreement between Square Enix and Sunflex.
