Best Fake PS4 Controllers 2021

by Tim Blue

PS4 controllers are not invincible. Prolonged hours of button mashing, drops, and just normal everyday use eventually wear out the controller, forcing you to buy a new controller. Leveraging the multiplayer capabilities of some games also requires additional controllers. However, for a lot of gamers, it can be difficult to splurge 60$ on a new controller.

In such situations, many of you might want to turn to purchase a fake PS4 controller. Although these fake controllers are of a cheaper build, and may present a few minor issues, they largely provide the same functionality as the original at a fraction of the cost. This makes them a tempting option for cash-strapped gamers looking for a replacement controller, or extra controllers to play with friends.

Unfortunately, not all fake PS4 controllers are made equal. There are many examples out there on online marketplaces with flimsy buttons, subpar build quality, heating issues and poor reliability. The added lack of a warranty or guarantee on these products can make people understandably apprehensive of such a purchase. Moreover, a poorly built controller can even adversely affect your gameplay. All these factors can make fake PS4 controllers a risky purchase.

To save you the added troubles of laboriously sifting through online marketplaces in the search of your dream fake PS4 controller, I have compiled a list of some of the best-reviewed controllers available on the market, giving you the best bang for your buck.
