In December I had the chance to review the Razer Raiju PS4 Controller, and man was it awesome! Razer made the Raiju for eSports, you can see it in the design choices they made. What I mean by that is they picked wired over wireless, by doing this the effectively increase your response time. I saw this when I played Darksiders, the Raiju felt more responsive compared to my Dual shock PS4 controller. Another thing that I loved about the Raiju is that it feels sturdy (almost like my favourite film camera the Nikon F4, a tank in disguise) and your hands don’t get tired very fast when using it (it just has the right weight for me). They also included a quick control panel for the Raiju, here you can control premade profiles, the volume of your headset and switch your mic on and off. This also helps you to stay in a game longer. The other difference between the normal controller and the Raiju is that it has 4 extra programmable triggers that you can use, the two triggers at the bottom of the controller can be removed with the included screwdriver. The only problem that I would have with the Raiju is that it might be expensive, for the price of the Raiju you can get two normal controllers and a game. But I do feel that it would be a worthwhile investment especially if you do play long hours on your Playstation 4(it might even get you to sign-up for so eSport’s events!) and you are looking for a new controller. The Razer Raiju for me would be my next controller and I would recommend it to anybody! This is your local mad scientist signing out…..I know what I want for my birthday (you hear me Bossman!)
