Two New PlayStation 4 Controllers Revealed

Pin it

Sony have partnered with Razor and Nacon to bring two new licensed pro controllers for the PlayStation 4 which will release this holiday season in Europe.

Sony has worked in close collaboration with Razor and Nacon to help optimize each controller, incorporating the innovative Dualshock 4 controls so that they work with any model of PlayStation 4. These are Razer Raiju and Nacon Revolution.

Razer Raiju

  • Two Extra Bumpers and two extra detachable triggers
  • Built-in control panel on the front of the controller
  • Trigger-stop switches and hair trigger mode for ultra-fast trigger responses
  • Two custom profiles which you can instantly switch between and modify
  • 3.5mm headset jack and dedicated headset volume and mic mute controls
  • Detachable analog stick rubber caps which provide extra grip during intense gaming sessions
  • Compatibility with all PS4 systems via the braided 3m-long USB cable – deatchable for easy storage

As of now Razer doesn’t seem to have any official page for the controller, but you can sign up to receive more information about it here.

Nacon Revolution

  • 46 degree amplitude dual analog sticks, enhanced with innovation 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 braided 3m-long USB cable – deatchable for easy storage

You can check out Nacon’s website here for more information about the controller.

Sony’s collaboration with these two companies seems as though they aim to give direct competition to the Xbox One Elite Controller. No pricing has been announced for now and only time will tell whether or not these controllers are good enough to replace the standard Dualshock 4, even though both of these controllers have a lot of features to offer. As for the release date for the Indian markets, I don’t expect them to launch before next year.
