Razer unveils new PlayStation 4 Wireless Lineup!

August 21, 2018 – Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, announced today the release of two new officially licensed controllers for the PS4: Razer Raiju Ultimate and Raiju Tournament Edition. The company also unveiled its new Razer Thresher headset for PlayStation. Razer aims to meet the evolved needs of PlayStation gamers with these new line additions.

“Console games continue to set new standards for gameplay, but controller designs have been slow to evolve in step with those advancements,” said Min-Liang Tan, Razer Co-Founder and CEO. “The power of PS4 offers an incredibly immersive experience with controllers that can unlock the platform’s potential and headsets that exploit the richness of Sony audio. Our new Razer Raiju Ultimate and Tournament edition, and Razer Thresher, answer the call for next-level PS4 hardware.”

Razer Raiju Ultimate

The Razer Raiju Ultimate is crafted as the most modular PS4 controller ever—to challenge the limits of customisability. Sporting wireless and wired connectivity, upgraded ergonomics and a wealth of customisation options, the Razer Raiju Ultimate is the controller that adapts to every gamer.

A new dedicated mobile app enables gamers to make advanced customisation easily. Multi-function buttons can be mapped to create more than 500 customised profiles to fit different playstyles for different gaming genres. Users may adjust the sensitivity of thumbstick movements to achieve greater headshot aiming precision or speedy response.  Advanced lighting effects are powered by Razer Chroma for immersive gaming—RGB LED lighting up in sync with controller vibrations and other button actions.

The controller also comes with a set of interchangeable thumbsticks and D-pad, providing more ways to personalize experiences. RazerTM Mecha-Tactile Action Buttons combine the soft-cushioned touch of a membrane rubber dome with crisp tactile clicks of a mechanical switch. The distinct feel of the controller makes it a unique choice for gamers.

To ensure a user-friendly experience, the controller offers three connectivity modes via a built-in switch located on the back for easy transitions between PS4, Bluetooth, USB and PC Bluetooth modes. A quick control panel provides instant access to functions like profile switching and on-the-fly mapping, while a secure button lock prohibits unintended key presses.

Razer Raiju Tournament Edition

The Raiju Tournament Edition focuses on essential features that gamers seek. With wireless and wired connectivity, an ergonomic design and seamless accessibility, it is strategically positioned to provide a competitive edge.

Razer Thresher for PS4

The Razer Thresher for PS4 provides comfort and control over a gamer’s listening experience. Users can choose a wireless 2.4 GHz connection or a wired 3.5 mm connection. The Razer Thresher can last up to 16 hours in wireless mode from a single charge without concerns of disconnecting.

With a wireless range of up to 40 feet, the Razer Thresher for PS4 is designed to be the most reliable headset in the world for gamers.

Master and mic volume controls are conveniently placed on the headset. A retractable unidirectional boom microphone and mic-monitoring allow you to hear yourself in-game. This mix of seamless control and audio fidelity provides a winning advantage when ambient sounds and clear communication matter.

The headset comes with large leatherette ear cushions made of memory foam that conform to any gamer’s head. The memory foam provides extraordinary comfort, better sound quality, and noise isolation, even for those wearing glasses thanks to the indented eyewear channels in the ear cups.

Within each ear cup is a 50 mm driver that provides loud and clear audio into each cup with a wide frequency response range of 12 Hz to 28,000 Hz.

The Razer Thresher for PS4 is also compatible with the PC, Nintendo Switch, and other devices equipped with a 3.5 mm audio port.
