Razer has announced its two new advanced controllers – the Raiju Ultimate and Raiju Tournament editions, alongside a new headset dubbed the Razer Thresher, all for the PlayStation 4. The controllers are the successors of the Razer Raiju that was released last year, which is still considered one of the best third-party controllers out there.
Both controllers are fully customizable and they both have wired and wireless connectivity via Bluetooth. They can also pull custom profiles from the cloud, if the need arises, but have on board profiles as well.
The Raiju Ultimate wants itself to be the controller that can adapt to every gamer’s needs, hence the modular options it has, such as interchangeable thumbstick and D-pad controls, multi-function buttons and sensitivity controls which can be adjusted very precisely by the user. In addition, it can sync with your controller vibrations and other actions via Razer Chroma’s RGB LED lighting.
The Ultimate can work with both the PlayStation and the PC, so it can connect via Bluetooth and USB. When you decide to use it in a different way than usual, it has a switch on the back you can turn to, for an instant change.
Button mapping and profile switching are available thanks to a quick control panel.
The Raiju Tournament Edition is not all that different from the Ultimate, and the differences that do divide them are minor – it has only one on-board profile instead of four and lacks the built-in control panel. Because of that, it costs $50 less.
Now, the Razer Thresher for PlayStation 4 is also compatible with multiple platforms, Nintendo Switch and PC included. They last up to 16 hours in wireless mode and have a range of 40 feet. The headset has a retractable microphone, built-in volume controls and memory foam ear cushions.
All three devices are already up for sale and their prices vary from $199.99 for the Raiju Ultimate to $149.99 for the Tournament Edition, while the Thresher will start at $129.99.
So, if you’re a gamer and feel like treating yourself, here’s your chance.
