Razer has announced the launch of the Razer Wildcat for Xbox One, a pro-gamer-validated, tournament-grade, console controller with four multi-function buttons added to the conventional array, which allows gamers to re-bind any button on the controller for easy access.
25% lighter than other tournament grade controllers, the Razer Wildcat for Xbox One features an ergonomic shape to increase actuation speed and a quick control panel that allows users to create dedicated button layout profiles for different games on the fly.
“The Razer Wildcat for Xbox One is the third generation Razer Xbox controller and the result of years working with eSports athletes on many prototypes,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “The lightest tournament-grade controller in its class with additional remappable buttons gives gamers an incredible edge.”
Designed with the feedback of eSports athletes, the Razer Wildcat for Xbox One promises to offer unrivalled durability with reinforced high carbon steel analog stick necks, removable aircraft-grade aluminum triggers, and optional palm grips and analog stick grip caps.

One thing I absolutely hate about the Xbox One is it’s controllers – especially the bumpers. The Razer Wildcat might just be the answer to that particular problem. If nothing else, it sure looks like it means business.
