A new premium controller is going to be hitting the market this year with the Pro BFG from VICTRIX. Releasing this fall for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC, the Pro BFG looks to be the next evolution in controller hardware. Numerous customizable and accessibility features will be available such as wired and wireless compatibility, modularity, 3 profiles for button mapping, and access to the VICTRIX customization app. The controller will retail at $179.99 USD, and Pre-orders are now live and as of this writing, still in stock. I can’t wait to get my hands on one, as the purple color scheme is simply perfect. The full details from today’s announcement are down below:
Launching this Fall at a price of $179.99, the Pro BFG for PlayStation®5 console, PlayStation®4 console, and PC is a high-performance, completely customizable controller. The Pro BFG is officially licensed for PlayStation systems by Sony Interactive Entertainment*.
Engineered from the ground up by Victrix and designed for e-sports, the Pro BFG offers a number of features and options including:
- Full Wireless and Wired Compatibility: With the Mode Switch, players can easily swap between PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC (using X input) devices.
- Modularity: The reversible left module allows for both the standard PlayStation stick configuration as well as offset sticks. Fans of fighting games can swap in the Fight Pad module, which replaces the right stick with six microswitch buttons. The D-Pad, Analog Stick Caps, and Analog Stick Gates are also interchangeable.
- Four Mappable Back Buttons with User-Configurable Profiles: Players can map the back buttons on the fly with the Profile Button, and save up to 3 unique profiles for button mappings
- Patented Multi-Position Clutch Triggers™: Boasting 5 different stopping points, the patented clutch triggers allow players to tune the trigger pulls to their specific liking, whether they want hair triggers, standard triggers, or something in the middle
- Low Latency Audio with EQ Profiles: The Pro BFG delivers the highest possible audio quality through the controller’s 3.5mm Headset Jack. The controller is also compatible with 3D Audio on PS5™ consoles.
- Victrix Control Hub Customization App: PC players can make their controller as unique as their playstyle with the free Victrix Control Hub. The Control Hub allows players to configure button and EQ settings to fit their play style, run diagnostics, and update the controller’s firmware all in one place.
“When we released the Gambit controller last year, we got a lot of questions about when Victrix would launch a similarly pro-grade controller for PlayStation,” said Trevor Lehr, Director of Product Development at Victrix. “Rounding out the family of Victrix Pro products including Pro FS, Pro AF and Gambit, the Pro BFG brings the highest level of design and customization to a whole new level with wireless and modularity.”
