Sony’s revealed two new 3rd party PS4 controllers; one from Razer and another from Nacon which will hit the market later this year.

First up is the Razer Raiju. Not the first console controller they’ve made, considering they’ve produced Xbox controllers in the past.

The Raiju is designed for professional eSports tourneys, and has a few extra bits to make your experience better.

Unfortunately, it has some really odd button placement at the bottom and the controller is quite huge. It seems to look quite a lot like their Sabertooth controller as well, but we guess if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Here’s the features:

  • 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.

Then we have the Nacon Revolution Pro controller which looks a bit sleeker than Razer’s offering but still keeps its customizable aspect. You’ll also get multiple profiles and settings as well as weights so this might be the more versatile of the two. Here’s the features:

Here’s the features:

  • 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.
