Sony has announced today that it is partnering up with Razer and Nacon to bring PS4 players some fancy new DualShock 4 controllers dubbed “Pro Controllers.”
The two pro controllers are vastly different from one another and have their own specific features. The Razer Raiju is more along the lines of a traditional DualShock 4 controller in terms of shape, though it comes with some extra triggers on the backside of the peripheral.
- 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 – detachable for easy storage
The Nacon Revolution controller is a little more different, and in this writer’s opinion, ugly as sin. Instead of the analog sticks being aligned like they are on the DualShock 4 and the Razer Raiju, the Nacon Revolution takes a leaf from Microsoft’s Xbox One controller and skews them up a bit.
- 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 controllers will be available before the end of this year, though there’s no pricing information at the time of writing.
