Razer has presented its new products, in its new headquarters in Singapore, among which are several novelties that we did not expect.
The first of the products presented by Razer today is the Basilisk V3, its new gaming mouse that we could already test at elEconomista.es. It stands out for its design with 10 + 1 buttons but, without a doubt, the biggest novelty is the new wheel, capable of changing to a free mode in which it can move without resistance.
Personalization is the strong point of this mouse, since we can configure the buttons to do what we want, in addition to the HyperShift function that adds additional functionality to each one. The ‘switches’ are optical, so they do not depend on a mechanism but on a laser beam, with the speed and reliability that this entails. All for just $ 69.99, cheaper than the previous generation.
But without a doubt, the star of the day was the new Wolverine V2 Chroma, a video game controller designed for Xbox Series X / S and computer, which is presented as an alternative not only to the normal Xbox controller, but also to the Elite controller, with which it shares some similarities.
As with its mice, Razer wants to offer a lot of options to gamers, so this controller is completely customizable in every way. For example, we can vary the length of the top buttons RT and LT depending on the game; We can make the course longer in racing games, where they serve as a throttle and brake, or we can shorten it so that they act immediately in shooting games.
We can also swap the levers (joysticks) that come by default for others. We have the option of using longer levers, which give us more precision, or shorter levers with a concave end if we want greater speed. For example, we can use the long stick on the right stick to aim, and the short stick on the left to run around the map and change direction instantly.
We also have more buttons than on a normal Xbox controller, including the rear sticks that we also saw on the Xbox Elite. But also, we have a couple of new buttons at the top, next to the triggers.
But without a doubt, the best news for the most enthusiastic players will be the new mechanical buttons “Mecha-Tactile”, similar to the mechanical ‘switches’ found on Razer mice and which, therefore, will offer greater speed and a tactile sensation. Razer claims that the actuation distance has been reduced by 35%.
Finally, this remote is customizable even in appearance, thanks to some RGB light lines compatible with Razer Chroma to change them and apply the effects we want; and all the buttons can change their function using the Razer Controller app that we can get on Xbox from the Microsoft Store.
The Razer Wolverine V2 Chroma is available for € 159.99 at the razer store.
The other surprise from Razer was something more curious, some gloves for gaming fingers; It sounds ridiculous, but the idea is to wear them on the thumbs while we play on the mobile. The silver fiber in which they are made improves sensitivity and therefore allows greater precision when using the touch screen, while allowing perspiration. They are available for 11.99 euros at the Razer page.
