Men Have Always Used ‘Science’ to Explain Why They’re Better Than Women

The creators of the All Controller tried to fix that problem by designing a gamepad that works with everything from the PS4 to PCs to iPhones, so you can use a single controller for every game and platform you play. After spending a week with a pre-production model, I think they might be onto something. Read More >>
