Is that a for real product or a hoax video?

*watching without sound probably didn't help*

In not totally sure, but in theory and watching the video it should work and your thumbs will never leave the analogue sticks which is the whole point in the thing.

It's a complete load of bollocks then as there's feck all on the D-Pad, which is used as often as the face buttons on most modern games.

I don't understand though, do you take your finger off the trigger instead to try to pull those floppy rubber bits and that bit way out on the right of the O button?

That just seems more cumbersome than taking your finger off the trigger buttons and simply pressing the buttons themselves.

Did you order one?

No you just move your hand and that presses the Buttons instead of taking your hand off the right stick

Ah gotya, you push your fingers outwards with those things against the back of your fingers.

Still....I can push all the buttons on the control pad without my thumbs leaving the sticks, as I suspect can pretty much any console gamer these days. And again the D-Pad is used just as much as the face buttons so why have they only done half the job? Pretty silly.

At first I thought it was for people who have movement issues or have lost one or more of their fingers or something.

I could see it being helpful for folk who have lost fingers or have restricted movement. I can't see how it would give me any advantage. It takes a split second to press any button on the controller as it is.
