BEST PS4 Pro Controller- Nacon Revolution

BEST PS4 Pro Controller- Nacon Revolution


– So a couple months back,
PlayStation’s European blog revealed two Pro controllers that are officially licensed
for the PlayStation 4, this being one of them,
the Nacon Revolution. So we’re gonna open this
up and check it out. Now, take a look here. Really fancy box. Ah, this is actually pretty cool. So this is, you can tell
right away looking at this that it’s more based on an Xbox One design rather than PS4 right down
to the grips, button layout, sticks where normally on
PS4 you have ’em done here, Xbox One moves up here and
different D-pad design as well but you can definitely tell it’s for PS4 ’cause it has this giant
touchpad at the top that most games have stopped using. So this is a wired controller design which is better for a Pro controller because it gives you the
least latency possible. So we’ll set this up
and hook it up in a bit. Got something else in here which are adjustable weights. This is something you’ll see in a lot of different Pro controllers and like gaming mice, mice,
mousen, mouse, mouses, whatever. It’s adjustable weight so you can have it have the right amount of heft
that feels comfortable to you. So try a couple of these out
and see which one feels right. So yeah, let’s go ahead and
hook this up and try it out. Looking at it in comparison
to the stock DualShock 4, aside from the clearly obvious difference in grips and stick layout, you’ll also notice the
buttons on the Revolution are larger and much more pronounced. Like the DualShock 4, you
have a 3.5 millimeter jack to plug in your favorite headset and the Revolution’s light bar has been moved to the
bottom of the controller rather than the top. One of the biggest things missing compared to the DualShock 4 though is using a micro-USB cable
for plugging in to charge and sync the controller. Instead, the Revolution
has its own power cable that screws on to make
the connection secure and requires a constant plug-in
to be used with your system. No wireless mode whatsoever. Now, of course, as for actual
hands on with the controller, I got to say it is really
really comfortable. Now, if you are a longtime Sony fan, you’ve only ever played
on PlayStation systems, it’s gonna take a little getting used to because it does not match the form factor of PS4 controllers at all but honestly, the grip design
which is closer to an Xbox One is a lot better for you. There are a few little things about it that feel a little off to me. I wish the triggers were a little lower though they do have just the
right amount of resistance and pretty much everything else on this controller feels great. Buttons feel really good. The sticks have a really
great smoothness of motion. I really like the idea that they went with a concave
control stick for the left ’cause you’re just gonna
keep your thumb on that at all times whereas the right
stick uses a convex design which is a little better
when you have to do sharp, quick movements. I also really really love this D-pad. It’s a great balance between
a circular D-pad design where you can do quick rolls but at the same time, there’s
a very clear definition of up, down, left, right. One thing that is a little weird about this controller though
for me is the macro buttons which you have on the backside here. These ones on the outside feel perfect. You can hold the controller and just click them whenever you need to. These ones though, you can hit ’em but they feel like the kinda thing that it’s awkward enough where
in the heat of the moment when you have to hit it
right at the right time, you might end up screwing up. Another thing that’s cool too is that it does have
adjustable weights in it so if you wanna have it be
just the right heft for you, I like having a really
heavy controller personally, you can open up these handles right here to pop the weights out,
put in what you want and put it back away. Now, since this controller
is officially licensed but not made by Sony in house, all of the customizing
is done through a PC app rather than using your PS4 directly. With this, you can adjust four
different profile settings which are really easy to switch
between on the controller. Just flip a switch on the back to change from stock settings to custom and another button allows you to switch between four different
profiles on the fly. In each profile, you can customize the right joystick’s
deadzone and acceleration. You can remap the buttons, adjust the sensitivity of your triggers and even customize your own macros which is mostly handy for MMOs like FFXIV but can be used for other games as well. For instance, let’s say
you’re playing a fighting game and you don’t care to actually
input commands yourself. Well, you can set up macro to do this. So the Nacon Revolution is an interesting and definitely more powerful alternative to the traditional PS4
DualShock controller. It’s more comfortable, the overall build quality
is definitely higher and for those of you
who are deeply engulfed in competitive gaming, the customization options
can have a massive impact on your performance. (Awesome Music Plays) (Beat Drops) Now, right now, this
is exclusive to Europe but hopefully it’ll make
its way over here to the US. If you do wanna grab
one though right away, there are a few ways to import one. For instance, you could grab it on eBay. Then again, maybe wait a bit.
