Review in Progress

With a tagline of “smaller size without any compromise”, it seems that the “MP” in MPress stands for Maka Pahoa, an ancient double-pointed dagger used by Hawaiians. The Mpress is an all-buttons controller with rounded edges that is designed for easy transport while maintaining its competitive ability. It is thin but relatively weighty at 4 lbs, providing stability. Regardless, there are holes threaded at the bottom to allow for the addition of feet. There is a lock toggle to avoid getting DQ’d in a tournament due to pressing a menu button and so on.

At least 20,000 OBS-MX buttons have been sold, and they are present in this controller as well. Their activation distance is a mere 1.4 mm. In addition to responsivity, the design ensures that button caps do not pop off or even wear out. To never miss an input, each switch is soldered directly onto the board. The Paradise Arcade Shop is willing to swap out any purchased switches for free.

On the website, you can choose between different Cherry MX and Kailh switches, button colors, and even a black or white printed circuit board (PCB). The price is up there, but you are getting a one-of-a-kind product that can even survive a car being driven over it!
