Sony has today given gamers their first glimpse at two new PS4 controllers, designed with e-sports and competitive players in mind.
The tournament-grade Razer Raiju contains a number of features designed to benefit competitive players, including: two extra bumpers and two extra detachable triggers; a 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 users can instantly switch between and modify; a 3.5mm headset jack and dedicated headset volume and mic mute controls; and detachable analog stick rubber caps which provide extra grip during intense gaming sessions.
The Nacon Revolution, meanwhile, features an asymmetrical analogue stick layout typically found on Xbox controllers, as well as the following features: 46° amplitude dual analogue sticks, enhanced with “innovative firmware” for advanced e-sports 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.
Each controller will be wired, and include a detachable USB cable. Both are expected to be released by the end of the year.
