Gamers worldwide rejoice – a $150 controller by Razer will be available for Xbox One. The gaming controller is dubbed Razer Wildcat, an “elite” customizable pad. Razer describes the controller as a “pro-gamer-validated, tournament-grade” variant.
It displays four additional fully programmable buttons for a more personalized control experience, whereas its back triggers are made of aircraft grade aluminum and multifunction bumpers. So, the four extra buttons are two triggers and two bumpers, associated to whichever input the gamer chooses.
In comparison to other tournament grade controllers, the Razer Wildcat weighs 260 g, making it 25 percent lighter. More technical aspects include the 3.5 mm audio jack, which is also featured by the Xbox One standard controller.
Thanks to its ergonomic shape and weight, it was especially designed for eSports, and it features a quick control panel, which has the role of allowing you to switch between desired profiles. Thus, for each game, you can configure your buttons accordingly. You can also adjust the volume via the control panel or mute it.
About its intriguing design and enhancements, it comes with green stick grips, which are optional, but if you want to add a personalized, fancy look to the controller, you can make use of them.
The controller comes in a case which also features a micro USB cable, four paddles, six thumbsticks, a set of 2 D-pads, AA batteries and, last but not least, a quick setup guide and a product manual, the latter making it easier for anyone to install and enjoy Razer’s Wildcat.
Moreover, Microsoft will include an application via which the user can adjust thumbstick sensitivity, button assignments and the values of the trigger, either minimum or maximum. What’s more is that you can save your personalized profiles using the app, whereas you can load and toggle between two profiles onto the controller.
Moreover, the company also intends to launch the Nabu wristband, initially announced during the Consumer Electronics Show, the 2014 edition. This wristband will come enhanced with a screen where notifications will be displayed, in comparison to Nabu X, the previously launched rival. The Nabu will be correlated with an app for iOS and Android, while it will function with Instagram, Facebook and several others. So, this wristband launches in October for the price of $99.99.
Also in October, Razer wants to launch its elite controller, designed for competitive gamers, for the price of $150.
