It’s never been more exciting to be a gamer. I hate to use the phrase, but back in my day we were lucky to have a flashlight dongle hanging over our Game Boy so we could see the screen. Yes, there was a time before backlights. Fast forward to now, and the PS4 has tons of awesome accessories that you never would have seen in the past.
Case and point, today we’re looking at the Controller Wall Mount from Forza Designs. These guys didn’t stop at a PS4 wall mount, so now they’re back again with another of their high-quality accessories. Does this one meet their standards? Time to find out!
The Eternal Gamer’s Problem Solved!
As a gamer, there’s a few things I’m always worried about. One of them is ensuring my PS4 has enough room to breathe, and another is how I’m going to avoid losing my controllers this week. I’ve tried drawers, I’ve tried tables, and yet they still find their way into the couch cushions or into the mouths of my dogs.
With this new controller wall mount, we finally have a solution. The design is simple but perfectly tuned to the shape of the DualShock 4. The mount also includes the screws you will need to place it in the wall, so all you need is a drill. The design is able to support multiple types of screws as well if you have a preference based on the material of your wall.
Here’s the thing: they could have made a cheap plastic mount with just enough width to balance the controller and call it a day, but they didn’t. Check out these specs:
- Made of solid steel
- Manufactured in the USA
- Snug and secure fit with grooves for the analog sticks.
- Mounts to either side of the TV
- Patented design
- 3 x 3 x 2 inches - 0.7lbs
I was impressed with how comfortably the controller sits into the mount. The curved grooves for the analog sticks give it a snug fit as well. The idea of my controller hovering high above my wooden floors would normally concern me, but the mount’s design ensures it won’t simply slip out.
Installation is quick and easy, and once it’s in the wall it’s not going anywhere. When it comes to accessories, especially something as unique as a controller wall mount, I really can’t ask for more.
Our Final Verdict
Do me a quick favor and answer these questions either to yourself or out loud if you feel the need. Don’t worry, I’m not judging.
- Have you ever lost a controller?
- Do you have a dog, cat, or creature from Dark Souls that likes to eat controllers?
- Do you wish you could have a place to put your controller beside your wall mounted PS4?
If you answered yes to one of the questions or threw your hands up and thanked the geniuses at Forza Designs for coming up with this solution, then you’re not the only one. A sturdy, well-designed, fully functional and fairly priced controller wall mount is within your reach.
Personally, I’m going to nab a second one for my other controller. Can’t be too careful these days. Do you have a wall mount for your PS4 or one of these new controller mounts? Let us know what you think of this unique accessory in the comments!
