COG Writes: Razer unveils a new "Pro" controller for the Xbox One and we get some hands one time with it. What we discovered was a unique and new way to use a controller that is not traditional of the "Pro" controller scene.
Rather buy the MS branded one At that price v
Yeah a whole 2 controllers, good call on overcrowding author.
No, thanks. Everyone's trying to cash in. I'll get the official XO one.
Yeah im hoping between this scuff and ms controller someone gives to one up everyone and drops that price.
I find with some of the games today, a pro controller is almost essential
Big mistake this is priced the same as the Elite controller. Should be at least 20-30 bucks cheaper.
If it was cheaper I would jump at it myself. But with it being the same price, I'd rather get the one from MS.
What makes the elite better than the normal one? This one looks cool though.
The elite comes with extra buttons. Plus you can actually switch the buttons around from other spots. It's a pretty cool controller.
Not only that, it comes with its own software the allows you to totally configure it to the T. I'm pretty sure this third party pad wont have that.
Alright thanks for the answer :)
I've heard good and bad about razer controllers, but they look so nice I wouldn't mind picking one up. If it was lower like another person said, I might have picked it up, but for the same price as the elite controller, I figure it'd be pointless to get a 3rd party controller.
lol.. a wired controller with parts you glue on then cant remove.. sure thing.. $150 you say? not a chance.. all lightweight cheap plastic (from the sounds of it) too so basically nothing to warrant the price tag.
umm what controller isnt made from lightweight cheap plastic...... none of them. every controller is made from plastic
the elite controller is much heavier then stock.. due mostly to better materials like stainless steel which also explains why it costs more.. this one doesnt.
doesn't look like very much metal on it to be honest. so there is still a lot of plastic and we aren't sure how they really compare till someone has them together. the weight difference could be just cause of the metal alone and not the durability of the plastic construction.
That nightrain green color is repulsive.
It offends my eyes. Only thing I like it on is the Focus RS
The Elite controller from Microsoft looks like a much higher quality product.
Apparently the PS4 doesn't have pro level gamers because aside from Scuff, all the PS4 controllers are bog standard. Why is the Xbox getting all the controller love? Is the cheapo $5 touchpad really that hard to replicate?
A controller doesn't make anyone a "Pro level" gamer. What ever happen to an even playing field??? I don't even own an Xbox and these things piss me off. It's not like people don't already use every trick in the book to get a victory, but now they give them a controller to allow more BS in game such as drop shot or allowing for quicker triggers. Maybe i'm just old school but i'm not feeling that one bit.
its an even field when anyone can buy one. your economic status is no one else's problem
Trust me it's not a money issue. All I see is a bunch of scrubs trying to get every advantage possible and probably still getting dominated. I understand third parties making these controllers because FairPlay is not their concern, but for Xbox to go down this road when it's supposed to be a level playing field is BS period!
its evolution man. i started gaming on NES when we had 2 friggin buttons and a dpad. should i have screamed unfair when they started adding more buttons each and every single generation of console?? look at snes and sega genesis. they revised controllers mid generation and sega went from 4 buttons to 6 and bumpers. look at playstation 1 it didnt even startwith analog sticks. then they made sticks and people were ranting just like this..... face it this is the way things go. its just evolution of tech and the way we use them. sooner or later this will be standard or something similar to it. hell even for pc gaming we have mice with more than 2 buttons....gasp...
Wannabe your point is invalid because you weren't playing online against other players. Whats next controllers with faster response analogs, turbos etc? At what point do they draw the line??? Bad enough a lot of these games already sell weapons as content that gives players an advantage, but now you have to buy a 150$ controller too???
First off elite is made by MS, as for Razer the CEO dude has stated that he's not a big playstation fan .
Nice but a bit late for me for the Elite is already mine .
Whatever happen to player skills determining the outcome of the game??? Quality controllers are one thing, but button mapping, extra buttons and quicker triggers???
personally i only buy official controllers etc for my consoles
Surely the idea would have been to under cut MS on the price by some margin whilst still offering a solid piece of hardware. Epic missed opportunity. A shame really as I do want one but not for day light robbery.
all these 3rd parties trying to copy the elite sad
This one honestly looks to have the best D-Pad in years. no idea why MS cant do a D-Pad correctly its like they just plain refuse to
You know what's funny? In the past year, SONY has exclusive current gen console versions of USF4 and the upcoming sequel Street Fighter 5; both to be used in major competitions on PS4's. Also, the most successful console game series ever (COD) on one of the biggest video game competition stages in the world (e-sports) have also signed a deal for PS4 being their main console of choice. With all that being said, *NOW* is the time to promote Xbox One Exclusive Professional Competition Controllers? :-/ There has always been Pro controllers for Xbox 360, but the push for Professional Competition controllers on Xbox One over PS4...I just don't get it.
