Razer And Nacon Pro Controllers Revealed For PS4

Sony has announced a partnership with peripheral companies Razer and Nacon to produce pro controllers for the PS4. Both companies have worked closely with Sony to produce the Razer Raiju and the Nacon Revolution, with both releasing later this year. The main design influence has been the eSports scene with the aim to get these controllers in the hands of those who enjoy taking part in various game tournaments.

Both controllers have their own features which can be seen in the lists below.

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 – detachable for easy storage

Nacon Revolution:

  • 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

Neither has yet had its price revealed but I’d expect to pay a bit of a premium.

From the heady days of the Mega Drive up until the modern day gaming has been my main hobby. I'll give almost any game a go.

  1. Wired controllers? Ugly things too. Why would anyone pay a premium for those. They look like they have be designed by six years old kids after a Haribo binge!!!

    • Pro gamers still use wired controllers because they offer better feedback than wireless controllers.

      • …and the latency is just a fraction lower as well.

  2. They both look good and can see how they’ll be good for those who take their gaming seriously, especially online, but I’m happy with the DS4 and my wheel.

  3. They look alright, shame they are wired but that – and the lack of a lightbar – should help keep the price down.

  4. I just bought the Xbone elite pad, hands down best pad out there right now

    Give me a PS4 version of that

  5. I prefer the design of the Nacon but that d-pad is just wrong

  6. Weird fat controllers? One of them has one of the sticks in the wrong place? (But let’s not get into that argument again)

    The price will be fun. Someone’s obviously thought “Our 3rd party controllers will look too cheap. Would official licensing help push the price up?”, with someone else saying “Yes, but what if we add all these features that people think will make them great?”

    For 99.999% of people, the controller isn’t going to make any difference to your skills. And that other 0.001% are probably those muppets that think “esports” is (a) a real word and (b) an actual sport.

    • shut up! Using the Xbox Elite controller has made a huge difference for me in BF1, Gears and Forza. No longer having to take my thumb off the right stick means i can react so much faster. Am I suddenly into esports – nope, but i am enjoying the extra precision and (at times) slight edge.
