Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced the launch of the Razer Wildcat for Xbox One, a pro-gamer-validated, tournament-grade, console controller with four multi-function buttons added to the conventional array, which allows gamers to re-bind any button on the controller for easy access. Twenty-five percent lighter than other tournament grade controllers, the Razer Wildcat for Xbox One features an ergonomic shape to increase actuation speed and a quick control panel that allows users to create dedicated button layout profiles for different games on the fly.

My Thoughts

This controller is clearly designed to compete with Microsoft’s own Xbox One Elite controller, being priced identically and offering similar features. Right now there does not seem to be a clear winner between both premium controllers, but when it comes to look I’d personally prefer Microsoft’s own controller.
