Razer Reveals Onza Xbox 360 Controller at CES

Paul Lilly

The new Onza Tournament and Standard Edition Xbox 360 controllers will give console a gamers a glimpse into the world of Razer, which up to this point has focused entirely on PC gaming peripherals and assorted gear.

Razer says the two new controllers are "built for the hardcore competitive gamer," but how do you do that with an Xbox 360 controller? The Tournament Edition offers adjustable resistance analog sticks that gamers can twist one way or the other.

Aside from that differentiating feature, both versions sport Multi-Function Buttons (MFB) on the controller's shoulders that allow remapping of buttons. Razer pitches this feature not only as a great way to increase efficiency, but also to make things easier for gamers with disabilities who might have trouble reaching specific buttons on a standard controller.

Other features include 4 backlit Hyperesponse action buttons, non-slip rubber surface, quick-release USB connector, and a 15-foot lightweight, braided fiber cable.

Both the Standard ($40) and Tournament Edition ($50) will be available for preorder starting January 17 and will ship later this month.
