For a long time third-party controllers had the reputation for being sub-par to their first-party counterparts, mostly because it was true. However, third-part controllers have gotten much better, including features that aren’t found on the first-party controllers or new designs. Now PowerA has released their brand new FUS1ON Tournament controllers for both the PS3 and Xbox 360.
Gamers seeking more precision control can now dominate the competition as PowerA™ today announced that the FUS1ON™ Tournament Controller is now available in stores. After consulting a select group of professional gamers, PowerA fused elements of history’s best controllers and incorporated leading-edge technology and materials into a single premium controller. With unique analog thumbsticks, a pro gamer-inspired D-pad, high-grade components and more, this tournament level controller offers the same precision control to any gamer seeking a competitive edge. The FUS1ON Tournament Controller for Xbox 360® and PS3® is now available at Best Buy and GameStop as well as online at Amazon.com and PowerA.com for a suggested retail price of $79.99 USD.
It definitely has some next extra features, but you are paying a premium for them. I am curious how the analog sticks feel, but I like the fact that the PS3 controller has the D-pad and analog stick in a position similar to the Xbox 360 controller. If you think this controller will take you to the next level, then take a look at the pictures below to see all the features.
