Microsoft’s Elite wireless controller already offers features such as interchangeable paddles, hair trigger locks, button mapping, and an improved design, but Razer thinks it can do one better. Say hello to The Wolverine.
Equipped with interchangeable D-Pads, interchangeable thumbsticks, and Chroma support, The Wolverine is Razer’s answer to Microsoft’s most advanced (and priciest) Xbox One controller.
At $159, it provides hardcore Razer fans with a peripheral designed to elevate their game. The fact that it features Chroma technology is a nice touch and means Xbox developers can integrate lighting effects into their games.
“We’ve taken our time with the development of the Razer Wolverine Ultimate to really get it right,” said Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “Thanks to endless design iterations and pro-gamer feedback, we’re proud to be finally releasing a new contender for the crown.”
Below is the full list of features supported by The Wolverine:
