Quick there's a scruffy white dude looking at the xbox controller, send out the cute little Asian girl. Heard. goukijones literally gets a hand all over experience with the new Razer Onza controller for Xbox 360.
Seriously, everything was completely professional. I did not care for this controller at all. I don't like cords and it comes with a 15 foot cord. sad face. There is no confirmed wireless version. The two extra shoulder buttons are programable and that is a cool idea. But they are too close togther. Maybe that would take some getting used to. I was also not impressed with the d-pad. Microsoft just created the twisty d-pad, which is great. The Razer Onza has another flat surface for the d-pad. Jimmy don't like that. The highlight of the controller is the adjustable thumbsticks. I really think that will make a huge differnce in any FPS experience. Hey yo, send me a wired one for free and then maybe I'll consider buying a wireless one.

Razer finally announced the release date of the Onza. With it's adjustable thumbsticks, extra bumpers that you can remap, and 49 dollar price tag, what's not to like?
For over a year now I have been looking and searching for more information on the Razer Onza and when it would be released. Finally today I get an email letting me know that it's been released... sort of. It's an email letting me know that it'll be available for pre-order January 17.
I think this controller will put every other controller out there to shame. First off, it's cheaper, and who don't like a good deal Jimmy? Secondly, the ability to adjust the sensitivity of your thumbsticks is awesome. I remember how much more I liked the stiffness of the original xbox controllers over the new 360 ones. It makes those need for precision situations a lot more easier to deal with. The third good reason to get this controller is an extra set of bumper stops at the top that you can re-map to any other button on the controller. This means when a certain move or action requires you to use the directional pad, you can remap it to a bumper so you don't have to take your fingers off the stick, Awesome to say the least!
There are two versions, the tournament edition and the Standard. From what i've read it seems like the tournament edition comes with the adjustable thumbsticks and that's the only addition. The full set of features for the Tournament Edition are:
- 2 Adjustable resistance analog sticks
- 2 Multi-Function Buttons
- 4 backlit Hyperresponse action buttons
- Precision D-Pad
- Non-slip rubber surface (For all of those Sweaty and Heated "Endless" battles with yourself)
- Quick released USB connector
- Fully PC compatible
- 15 foot, lightweigh, braided fiber cable
They come in a white or a black background. The standard controller is only 39.99. I don't know about you guys but I'll definately be making an order on the 17th, popping in Halo Reach, and using the precision of my newly adjusted thumbsticks to pwnn some Jimmys.
