The Razer Raiju is a peculiar thing. Razer’s premium PlayStation 4 controller, created for the hardcore console players, is and still remains a mixed bag. Our experience with the eSports-focused controller back in January was pleasant enough, but there are areas that need improvement. Now the masses in Asia can finally get their hands on the Raiju, to determine if it is worth all the renewed fuss.
Priced at S$229.90 | MYR 749 | THB 5,590 | IDR 2,230,000 | PHP 9,299, it is cheaper than what you would have paid if you imported it.
The Raiju comes with customizable triggers and a full headset control component, as well as an additional 4 remappable triggers at the rear, for whatever suits your playstyle. The downside/upside is that it is still a wired-only gamepad. The Raiju also works out of the box with Steam titles, so PC gamers can pick this one up as well.
If you are a specs kind of consumer, here is the rundown:
- 2 shoulder Hyperesponse Multi-Function Bumpers
- 2 removable Hyperesponse Multi-Function Triggers
- 4 Hyperesponse mechanical action buttons
- 4 button Quick Control Panel
- Optional trigger stop switches for rapid-fire
- Optional hair-trigger mode for ultra-fast responses
- 3.5 mm audio port for stereo audio output and microphone input
- Compatible with PC
- In-mold rubber grips
- 2 optional analog stick rubber grip caps
- Carrying case
- Detachable 3 m / 10 ft lightweight braided cable with Micro-USB connector*
- Approximate size : 168 mm / 6.62” (Length) x 105 mm / 4.14” (Width) x 65 mm / 2.56” (Height)
- Approximate weight (With cable): 350 g / 0.77 lb
