PS Vita Getting L2 and R2 Triggers for PS4 Remote Play Thanks to Add-on by Japanese Manufacturer

on January 29, 2015 2:07 PM

One of the most frustrating elements of playing PS4 games via remote play on PS Vita is the lack of L2 and R2 triggers. The rear touch pad helps, but the lack of tactile feedback from an actual physical button is hard to compensate for.

The Japanese manufacturer Joetsu Denshi Kogyo is releasing something that could solve the problem, outed by the local retailer Rakuten.

The accessory is a cradle that transmits the input from the two additional triggers to the rear touch pad, and it comes in white and black (even if the pictures provided only show the black model).

Apparently it fits only the new PCH-2000 model of Sony’s portable console, but it definitely seems clever, even if its actual effectiveness will remain unknown until a practical test is made.

We’ll have to wait its release in Japan, scheduled for late April 2015, in order to know more.
