Gamer With Cerebral Palsy Gets A Custom PS4 Controller

It is good news for those Playstation kids who have been wishing to enjoy it but their ailment forbids them to do so.

Sony Playstation has made a customized controller for all those gamers who have cerebral palsy as reported by News12.

Peter Byrne had written to Sony complaining that the DualShock 4’s touchpad was very difficult to be handled by one who has cerebral palsy.

This was when a staffer named Alex Nawabi made him a customized controller for the same, to be used as the official PS4 gamepad.

It took Nawabi about 10 hours to disable the touchpad and put in another button that does the same in exchange.

The act was already very kind and generous but it went a level ahead when Nawabi made him an extra console just in case one of them breaks.

He just thought that the boy wouldn’t feel bad for asking another favor in case the first one breaks down.

This might not be a fully professional console but it does indicate that special gamers needs can be fulfilled without much effort in the future to come.
