Tactical Fanboy Gift Idea: Razer Onza Tournament Edition Controller

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

The Razer Onza Tournament Edition controller was designed to be an improvement over the standard Xbox 360 pad. It features a rubberized surface for increased grip and adjustable resistance analog sticks. The “hyperresponse action” face buttons take much less pressure to activate, which is noticeable when you’re, say, playing a fighting game or chainsaw dueling someone in Gears of War, and every press counts. One of the bigger strengths of the Onza is the 15ft braided cable, since Microsoft doesn’t offer their own official wired controller anymore (no more batteries, or optional charge kit). The only flaw, a fairly small one at that, with the Onza is the “Multi-Function Buttons”. These are two programmable bumpers that share real estate with the standard 360 bumpers. At first, it’s quite easy to accidentally press one of the programmable bumpers instead, but a bit of time spent with the pad will adjust muscle memory accordingly. With better designed ergonomics and a lower price point, the Onza TE is a great choice for any 360 gamers our there, professional or not.
