Sony has announced two new controllers for the PS4: the Razer Raiju and Nacon Revolution. These two new officially licensed controllers are designed for competitive gaming and come with a slew of new features.
The controllers will be coming to the European region, or SIEE region, sometime this year although an official date has yet to be confirmed.
These controllers have been developed by two third party companies, Razer and Nacon, who both specialise in creating pro-gaming equipment and have created two unique controllers for people to purchase.
The Razer Raiju is a more customisable and ergonomic controller to the standard PS4 counterpart and comes with:
– Two extra bumpers with detachable triggers
– Built in control panel on the front of the controller
– Trigger stop switches and hair trigger mode for “ultra-fast trigger response”
– Two custom profiles that can be switched between and modified
– Headset Jack with dedicated voume and microphone control buttons
– Detachable analog stick rubber caps to provide extra grip
– USB Cable attachment to the PS4
.The Nacon Revolution is designed “with the eSport player in mind” and comes with:
- 46° amplitude dual analogue sticks, enhanced with innovative firmware for advanced eSports accuracy and reach
- Four extra shortcut buttons
- Eight-way directional pad
- Four custom profiles – all configurable via the companion PC application, enabling players to: re-map buttons, assign macros to the four shortcut controls and adjust analog and trigger sensitivity
- Two internal compartments with six additional weights – for a tailored balance and feel
- Compatibility with all PS4 systems via the 3m-long secure connection USB cable – detachable for easy storage
Both of these controllers are pegged for launch at around Christmas of this year.
