During our meeting with the guys at Razer we got to sit down and talk about some products you can expect to see launched in the near future. To kick things off, we got an introductory talk from president of Razer USA, Robert Krakoff. He mentioned that although he didn't have any new PC products to show us at CES that we could still expect some new products to get excited about this year.
After that, we got to see a first for Razer in the form of the Onza Professional Gaming Controller for Xbox 360, which provides a number of innovative features that serious gamers can really make use of. This includes Razer's Hyperesponse buttons for faster actuation (think of the kind of response you get from buttons on Razer mice and you should get a good idea of how they feel). More impressive were the tension adjustable analog sticks, which can be set for more or less resistance depending on personal preference (or changed for different types of game for example). You also get a pair of extra shoulder buttons that can be assigned to act as one of the action buttons (say the R3 button) or as an auto-fire button. Check out the video below for a more detailed run through of the controller's features. You can expect the Onza to be available in the US and Europe for $49.99/€44.99 later this year (no exact release date has been set as yet). Of course, as a 360 controller you can expect Windows compatibility should you wish to use it with your PC.
