BigBen Interactive has announced that it has a new officially licensed PlayStation 4 pro controller in the pipeline, and you’ll be able to get your hands on it this October.
The Nacon Revolution Pro Controller 3 is the company’s newest iteration of its premium gamepad, targeted at those gamers who want more options when it comes to customisation.
Sony’s DualShock 4 is a great piece of kit but ever since the PlayStation 4 launched, hardcore gamers who are serious about their competitive performance online have been searching for more robust alternatives.
At first glance, the Revolution 3 doesn’t look all that different from Nacon’s latest model. It sports a smoother, more rounded form while championing the same asymmetric stick layout. The iconic PlayStation face buttons have had their colour restored and the rear side of the controller seems cleaner with fewer optional inputs.
BigBen is positioning the Revolution 3 as an ideal choice for those looking to go pro in their competitive game of choice. As such, this version favours a wired connection over wireless to reduce input lag (includes a 3m cable) and still retains the four programmable shortcut buttons, accessible using your middle and ring fingers.
Like other Nacon Revolution models, it carries most of the same core features as Sony’s DualShock with some extra leeway when it comes to customisation. Also compatible with PC, the Revolution 3 can be linked up to Nacon’s dedicated software to help fine tune aspects such as stick sensitivity and dead zones.
You can also pop off the textured cover on the back side to reveal a compartment where you can insert small weights, adding some extra heft to the gamepad.
Here’s a full rundown of specs:
Wired connection via USB-C cable (3m length)
PS, SHARE, OPTIONS buttons
4 shortcut buttons (S1/S2/S3/S4)
Dual customisable sticks with 46° amplitude
4* or 8-way directional pad
3.5mm headset jack for audio and chat

Internal weight compartments and 6 additional weights included (2x10g, 2x14g, 2x16g)
