8BitDo’s new Bluetooth controller is for gamers with limited mobility
8BitDo is already known for making great alternative controllers. This new controller hopes do let even more people game. Via The Verge:
The Lite SE — which looks a lot like the Lite controller 8BitDo launched in 2019 — is designed to be used either handheld or flat on a table. The trigger and bumper buttons are gone, replaced with L1, L2, R1, and R2 buttons on the front of the controller. L3 and R3 have their own buttons rather than relying on an analog stick click, and all of the inputs are more sensitive and easier to press. There’s an anti-slip mat built into the back of the controller to keep it from sliding around when used flat.
