Razer today announced the Razer Raiju controller for the PlayStation 4 console. Developed to win professional esports tournaments, the Razer Raiju is equipped with advanced controller customization and proven ergonomics to give gamers the legendary “unfair advantage” of Razer.
The Razer Raiju is the result of a close partnership with Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe (SIEE), as well as many iterations of prototypes tested by athletes of esports, ensuring full compatibility with PlayStation 4 and validated performance for tournaments.
Razer Raiju has four additional fully programmable Hyperesponse bumpers and triggers as well as four Hyperesponse action buttons. Hyperesponse is Razer’s proprietary mechanical swtiches technology that delivers precise performance and tactile response.
Positioned for fingertip access, the two additional bumpers at the top and the removable triggers at the bottom can be individually set to remap any of the other buttons on the controller. With the ability to set any configuration, users can decide exactly how they want to use their gaming weapon to dominate opponents.
The optimized yet familiar Razer Raiju shape, balanced weight and molded grips provide a perfect fit for hours of uninterrupted play. These features are a direct result of the feedback from the best athletes of console esports such as Tyler “FeLonY” Johnson and Brice “Faccento” Faccento, former Team eLevate (Call of Duty).
The quick four-button control panel provides easy access to a variety of functions. From switching between two customizable profiles to mute the microphone and adjust the game volume, users do not need to take their hands off the controller during a frenzy. At the base of the panel there is a 3.5 mm universal audio port for stereo audio output and microphone input.
For low-latency play that is crucial to winning tournaments, the Razer Raiju uses a lightweight, braided cable with a Micro-USB connector that is removable for easy storage and transport. The driver also comes with a premium carry bag to keep you protected on the go.
Razer Raiju is already available in the global market for the price of 169.99 €.
