Razer announced that the new Razer Wolverine for Xbox One and PC. The upcoming game controller will be available for the aforementioned platforms this September for $159.99.
The new controller is designed to be adaptable and customizable for both casual and hardcore gamers’ needs. Of course, casuals don’t read gaming news sites so they have no idea the Wolverine exists, therefore they will never buy the controller unless some casual with a buttload of money decides to buy one from Amazon based on a random recommendation that pops up in their feed while they search for sexy waifu figurines and body pillows.
Anyway, the Wolverine features integrated RGB light strips that can be modified and customized using the Razer Synapse for the Xbox, along with 16.8 million color variations that can be cycled through static, spectrum cycling, breathing, wave and more. This will allow you to give the controller LEDs its own visual personality while you play.
According to Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO, the idea was to make a controller for PC and Xbox gamers that was nearly equivalent to the Xbox Elite Controller for the Xbox One, saying in the press release…
“We’ve taken our time with the development of the Razer Wolverine Ultimate to really get it right,” “Thanks to endless design iterations and pro-gamer feedback, we’re proud to be finally releasing a new contender for the crown.”
The Razer Wolverine sports two remappable multi-function buttons and four customizable triggers. There’s an interchangeable directional pad, allowing you to choose from the classic PSX design or the multi-direction tilting design that the Xbox Elite uses. Interchangeable thumbsticks and tactile switch action buttons also make the cut.
Hair-trigger mode and trigger-stop mode are available for the triggers, along with ergonomic non-slip rubber grips so you don’t have to worry about losing the controller during those sweaty-palmed moments when you’re engaged in a do-or-die PvP moment.
There’s a 3.5mm audio port for microphone and headphone output, a detachable 10ft braided fiber micro-USB cable, and the included Razer Chroma SDK and Razer Synapse Xbox app.
