Microsoft unveiled a $150 Elite controller for the Xbox One at this year’s E3, Razer today however, announced a $150 Xbox One controller of its own.
This unique gaming controller is called the Razer Wildcat. It is described as a “pro-gamer-validated, tournament-grade” controller by Razer themselves. It adds four buttons to the top and rear of the device, which otherwise sports the usual two analog sticks, a directional pad, four face buttons, two triggers, and two bumper buttons and a 3.5 mm audio jack
You can bind every button on the controller to whatever input you choose, and the controller has a “quick control panel”. This allows you, the player to quickly switch between different profiles. These can each have a different button configuration setup for various games.
The Wildcat also comes with optional rubber palm grip and analog stick grips (the green things in the images above), a carrying case, and a detachable 10-foot micro USB cable. The controller weighs 0.57 pounds, which Razer claims that it is more than 20 percent lighter than competing tournament-grade controllers.
Razer plans to launch the Wildcat in October for $150, which just so happens to be the same month and price as the Microsoft Elite controller, which will offer some of the same features, but also allows its d-pad and analog sticks to be swapped out.
