Razer unveils Pro-Style PS5 controller, and it has offset sticks

Razer jumps into the PlayStation 5 console scene with an officially licensed premium gamepad. Dubbed the Razer Wolverine V2 Pro, the console features a black and white design and is packed with high-end components and customization features. Notably, the Wolverine V2 Pro has offset analog sticks and boasts wireless connectivity using Razer’s HyperSpeed ​​Wireless technology. Aimed at competitive gamers, the Wolverine V2 Pro will cost $250 and is exclusive to GameStop and the Razer Store.

Although this is Razer’s first PS5 console, it’s not the first in the Wolverine line. Several Wolverine consoles have been released for Xbox/PC over the years, but all of them only offered wired connections. In this regard, the Wolverine V2 Pro addresses the only major complaint we had with the excellent V2 Chroma Xbox console.

It has a similar form factor to the V2 Chroma, but appears to be slightly larger. As an officially licensed PS5 controller, it has all the standard menu buttons as well as a touchpad. But it doesn’t have an internal speaker, adaptive triggers, or haptic feedback.

Instead of DualSense’s Adaptive Trigger technology, the V2 Pro has what Razer calls “HyperTriggers.” These are trigger stops with two settings that are controlled by flip switches located on the back of the console. Lock engagement reduces pull distance to register trigger inputs. Trigger stops are generally aimed at fans of first-person shooter games, as they can increase the rate of fire, bringing the console experience closer to mouse and keyboard controls.

The Wolverine V2 Pro uses Razer’s Mecha-Tactile buttons. This unique design makes the face buttons, D-pad, and shoulder buttons feel and respond to the click of a high-end gaming mouse. The 8-way D-pad uses precision keys for each individual input to improve accuracy.

There are four resettable buttons on the back of the console and two on the top. The rear triggers have the same overall design as those on the V2 Chroma, but they are spaced slightly closer to the knobs.

For further customization, you can download the Razer Controller Setup app for iOS and Android. This application can be used to reset the back and top multifunction buttons. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Razer product without Chroma RGB lighting. You can tinker with the lighting effects that run along the knobs within the app. You can also add what is essentially a second profile for the sensitivity of the analog stick. Assigning the “clutch” button allows you to change to another sensitivity setting while gaming.
