HAMBURG, Germany- Razer, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced the release of two new officially licensed controllers for the PlayStation 4, the Razer Raiju Ultimate and the Raiju Tournament Edition. Also announced is the new Razer Thresher headset for PlayStation 4. These new additions to Razers console range are designed to meet the changing needs of PlayStation gamers.

"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 platforms 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 PlayStation 4 hardware."

Razer Raiju Ultimate

The Razer Raiju Ultimate has been designed as the most modular PS4 controller ever, bringing unparalleled customization. Sporting wireless and wired connectivity, upgraded ergonomics and a wealth of customization options, the Razer Raiju Ultimate is the controller that adapts to every gamer needs.

A new dedicated mobile app enables gamers to make advanced customizations easily. Multi-function buttons can be mapped to create more than 500 customized 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 for quick movement. Advanced lighting effects powered by Razer Chroma give a more immersive gaming experience with RGB LED lighting in sync with controller vibrations and other button actions.

The Razer Raiju Ultimate is supplied with a set of interchangeable thumbsticks and alternate D-pad, providing more ways to personalize the Raiju Ultimate according to game and playing style. Razer Mecha-Tactile Action Buttons combine the soft-cushioned touch of a membrane rubber dome with crisp tactile clicks of a mechanical switch for a precise, positive action.

The Raiju Ultimate can be used on both PS4 and PC, with both wired and Bluetooth support for each platform provided via a built-in switch located on the back of the controller. A quick control panel provides instant access to functions such as profile switching and on-the-fly mapping, while a secure button lock eliminates accidental key presses.

Razer Raiju Tournament Edition

The Raiju Tournament Edition focuses on the essential features of a great tournament controller, with the same responsive Mecha-Tactile buttons, programmable multi-functions buttons and cloud-based profiles, perfect for tournament play. With wireless or wired connectivity, an ergonomic design and seamless accessibility, the Raiju Tournament Edition gives pro-players a competitive edge.
