Fighting games have been around since the earliest days of the arcade and have invade anything from PCs to mobile phones. But despite their ubiquity, such games are still best played on the machine that gave birth to them. Or at least something close to it.

This humongous PS4 controller is thankfully a one-time thing

We've seen our fair share of gaming devices and peripherals magnified a hundred times their size, but almost all of those have been fan-made. This one, however, is as official as it gets.

Nintendo Switch Joy-con woes fixed with tiny conductive foam

The Nintendo Switch might not have gained a perfect score, but reception has mostly been positive. The most glaring problem, perhaps, is the connectivity issue that plagued some Joy-con controllers. Nintendo has so far demonstrated it skills at downplaying the problem but it might silently already have a fix ready, as well as new Joy-con SKUs. And apparently, that fix is nothing but sticking in a small piece of metal-coated foam to reduce interference from outside forces.

Xbox controllers now supported by Steam Controller Configurator

Valve's own Steam Controller may be one of the most interesting hardware peripherals for PC gaming, but it comes with a steep learning curve. The trade-off to this, however, is that it's deeply customizable, thanks to its software that allows any game's controls to be reassigned and mapped to buttons of a user's preference. A few months ago, Valve began opening up this software and making it compatible with the PS4's DualShock 4 pad, but now it's doing the same for Xbox controllers.
