Would really welcome some help please. My 17 yr old son has requested a gaming controller for Christmas. We have been looking at the above 2 controllers. The Razer has now been released at the horrendous price of £150 and I really think that's ridiculous! I don't grudge my son the money but it costs nearly as much as we paid for his PS4! Unfortunately this is the only thing he wants! The Nacon is said to be released at a cheaper price but there's no release date yet. What should I do? Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

I tend to agree with you. The Razer Raiju appears to be a Europe controller only and from looking at the product page, it seems quite expensive for what you're getting. Remember, Razer products are about their name and less about the product itself. Similar to Apple, you're paying for the name.

Looking at the Nacon Revolution, this appears to be an Xbox controller for the PS4. It doesn't seem to be anything special.

If you don't mind me asking, what types of games does he play and how often does he play them? These controllers are not really meant for younger and casual gamers.

Hi Masterchief, thanks so much for replying. My son is 17 and mostly plays Call of Duty.He is determined that the only thing he wants is one of these controllers with the 'triggers'.

For a 17 year old gamer who plays Call of Duty, it's very hard to recommend a product like this. While I'm sure he is good at the game, I would assume he is not a professional player.

For what the cost is for the controller, I would advise not getting it. Even knowing that he might be a little mad about it.

Thanks so much Masterchief - I have some good news!! They are releasing the Nacon Revolution on the 23rd December at the more reasonable price tag of £89.99. Although still a bit steep it's nearly half the price of Razer one!!

Razer, Love 'em or Hate 'em?
I bought last year a few different Razer products on the recommendation of one of my friends. So far, they've been REALLY disappointing, Here's what has happened to each one: Razer Imperator: I went through 2 that were bad out of the box (one was creaking like it wasn't put together well, and...
