The PDP One Handed Joystick is a joystick developed by Performance Designed Products (PDP) and for the Xbox Adaptive Controller. It has buttons at the side which are programmed to work as AB and XY controls, but which, like the Adaptive Controller, can be reprogrammed.
The box that the PDP One Handed Joystick comes in has a green top, with a picture of the one handed joystick in front, and some more information in the corner. On the side, it tells you a bit more about it, and like other products, there’s the same information in other languages on the back. A picture of the joystick itself is included on another side as well.
Inside, you’ll see the Joystick itself hidden in bubblewrap, with a lead and USB already attached. You get warranty, but nothing else.
So what do I think about the PDP One Handed Joystick overall?
The PDP One Handed Joystick is better designed than other joysticks I’ve tried, and although I don’t use the buttons, I find them easy enough to press. The joystick is easy to move, but where it falls short is when it moves every time I try to move it. Therefore, I would love if companies were to start developing cases for these types of joysticks, so they are accessible for people who can’t use their hands.
I haven’t had time to try setting it up yet as I’ve been busy in the few weeks since I got it, but there will be a part 2 of this review once I get round to setting it up and playing around with it.
