Sony has approved a number of official controllers across vendors like HORI and even Razer in an attempt to offer PS4 players a range of options, and now the games-maker continues this trend with the Onyx.

HORI's new Onyx controller is shaped very much like an Xbox One controller, meaning it should be pretty good for shooters. The standard DualShock 4 can be funky at times, especially with its floating triggers (those things are a nightmare to fix if you lose the little spring), so major vendors and peripheral-makers have stepped in with their own respective solutions.

Outside of its looks and ergonomic feel, all in all the Onyx seems to act just like a regular DualShock 4: it sports wireless connectivity, has all of the buttons in the same place (well maybe except for the floating triggers), and rocks the touchpad that can often be wonky to use in-game.

"In addition to featuring all core controls and direct Bluetooth connectivity, the Onyx packs into its broad grip design a touch pad, dual vibration motors and offers asymmetrical sticks. As a result, this latest addition to our growing range makes it easier than ever for gamers to find a controller that suits their unique playstyle," reads the PlayStation Blog.

The HORI Onyx will be available starting January 15, 2018, but no pricing was announced.
