PS4 Getting Two Licensed ‘Pro’ Controllers
More power in your hands.
Sony themselves may not be making a ‘Pro’ controller for the PS4, because they don’t want to split their customer base (making a PS4 Pro console apparently doesn’t count as splitting your base), but that isn’t stopping third parties from filling the void. Two of those third parties are Razer (with the Raiju), and Nacon, with the Revolution, who are both making ‘Pro’ controllers for the system.
The Raiju is an advanced controller, with ergonomics and customization being its primary considerations. It has two extra bumpers and two extra detachable triggers, a control panel on the front of the controller, two custom profiles, hair trigger and trigger stop modes, for ultra fast trigger responses, detachable analog stick caps, and more.
The Revolution, meanwhile, “46° amplitude dual analogue sticks, enhanced with innovative firmware for advanced eSports accuracy and reach,’ four extra shortcut buttons, an eight way D-pad, two internal compartments with six additional weights, to make the controller feel balanced in your hand, four custom profiles, and more.
Both are due to launch this Holiday season, and in the absence of Sony providing their players with actual options, they look to be your best bets if you want more powerful controllers on your PS4.
