Today, Sony announced two new licensed pro controllers for the PS4: the Razer Raiju and Nacon Revolution. The two new controllers designed by Nacon and Razer are due to release sometime later this year.
The controllers were developed with competitive gamers and eSports specifically in mind, according to Sony. Further, each controller offers a different layout and unique set of features.
Designed especially for professional eSports tournaments, the Razer Raiju is equipped with “advanced controller customization and ergonomics.” Its features include:

The Revolution Pro Controller features include:
- 46° amplitude dual analogue sticks, enhanced with innovative firmware for advanced eSports accuracy and reach
