Razer Raion Fightpad

I don’t want to bash MarkMan, but he was pissed when I told him that the MadCatz Fightpad Pro looked terrible for fighting games when it was first announced. It turned out I was right.

The face buttons seem too low if you’re going to press them with your thumb.

I guess the placement of the buttons is fine if you play like this

It boggles mind that companies are releasing expensive controllers with next gen consoles launching next year.

They’re counting on their peripherals working on PS5/XBox 9000 from day one.

Still, anything over $150 on a controller is definitely niche. And I’m saying that having paid $175 for a XBox elite controller. And you know Razer is gonna mark this up like a motherfucker.

It’s $99 USD, it’s already available on their web site. I’m getting the PowerA Fusion Fightpad, which looks better, I’ll wait for reviews.

Yeah but even when consoles are backward compatible, the controllers usually the one thing that don’t work. Outside of the Wii U, what console actually could use the prior gen controllers out of the box?

MS has gone on record and said that current Xbox peripherals will work on Scarlett. Dunno about PS5 though.

they don’t even have a proper name for the console yet (XBOX SECOND)and you telling me their peripherals are going to be compatible with the nex gen console I dunno.

MS had said alot of shit the transition from X360 to Xbone, and thought he Xbone’s life cycle that MS had to quickly backpedal on. MS also that their next Gen console will have no optical drive (or at least there a budget version next-gen console with no Optical drive)

I would take what MS said with a grain of Salt.

Good Point.

I highly doubt MS will make any of their controllers forwards compatible as it would rob them of sales of new peripherals and accessories.
