Sony has announced two new third-party controllers for professional gaming on PS4. They will launch this year. The Razor Raiju looks sharp in features, boasting a high degree of dynamism and an extra part attached on bottom for more shortcuts. The Nacon Revolution is sculpted beautifully and comes in more rounded edges and a conventional shape.
Razer is a known name in controller manufacturing. They also have an Xbox controller. Both the Raiju and the Revolution are made for and good in esports. Revolution is more customizable. It comes with four custom profiles that can be configured manually allowing you to do sensitivity adjustment, button remapping, and macros assignment to shortcut controls. Raiju comes with two.
However, when Razer says that its pro gaming controller is for esports, it means business. There are two extra bumpers and two extra detachable triggers, detachable analog rubber caps for intense gaming grip, a headset jack (3.5mm), ultra-fast trigger response system, and mic mute and headset volume control right in the controller itself
These will cost seriously, that’s for sure. You can check out the full guide of Revolution on the official page. Raiju also has an official page that you can use to sign up for upcoming notifications.

Here’s what we think
Well, if you compare both the controllers and ask me which am I choosing, it’s definitely the Raiju. The Raiju looks better than the Revolution and also feels comfortable by it’s features. And after all, it’s a Razer product. But what I disliked about both the controllers is that Sony is licensing them. Both the controllers seems like the Xbox Controllers and not a Dualshocker.
Nevertheless, both looks pretty good and will give a tough competition in the market. If someone’s buying one, try to parcel me one as well. Thanks in advance!
