E3 2015: A Closer Look at the Insane $300 L.Y.N.X. Transforming Controller from MadCatz

TouchArcade Rating:

We posted a brief roundup of some of the crazy controllers and peripherals we’ve run across at E3 so far this year, but we took an extended look at the MadCatz L.Y.N.X. transforming controller just because it was so cool/absurd/expensive/crazy/etc. Check out the full video below.

I seriously love the idea of a collapsible controller that provides full-size functionality in a form that’s easy to transport with you. The L.Y.N.X. is made of metal and feels very premium. It’s got a nice heft and the buttons and analog sticks feel really good. It’s just… 300 bucks? I don’t know. I guess we’ll see how the public reacts to that price point, but MadCatz did mention they have a similar controller in the works that’ll be plastic and have less features but will be considerably cheaper than the L.Y.N.X. It’s currently only for Android but an iOS version is planned.
