Bigben Announce Nacon Revolution Pro Controller 3 – Looking to Improve on Great
This year I've reviewed a few controllers by Nacon. To this day I still can't help but really rate the Nacon Revolution Unlimited Pro, which I reviewed back in June as a not-insignificant 9 out of 10. A little over two months after that, I reviewed the Nacon Asymmetric Wireless Controller, which was still good, but not on part with that of the Revolution Unlimited Pro. Looking to enhance on their Revolution Pro range for the PlayStation 4, Bigben has announced the Revolution Pro Controller 3.
Licensed by Sony, as with the other controllers in the Nacon range, this is looking to have a lot of features and support. The list of features are as follows:
- Wired connection via USB-C cable (3m length)
- PS, SHARE, OPTIONS buttons
- Touch pad
- 4 shortcut buttons (S1/S2/S3/S4)
- Dual customisable sticks with 46° amplitude
- 4* or 8-way directional pad
- 3.5mm headset jack for audio and chat
- LED player status indicator
- 2x customisable* vibration motors
- Internal weight compartments and 6 additional weights included (2x10g, 2x14g, 2x16g)
- Textured finish to the controller’s casing
- Hard storage case included
- Compatible with PC games in PC Advanced Mode**
Back control panel
- Game mode selection button (1-PS4™ / 2-PS4™ Advanced / 3-PC Advanced**)
- Profile selection button (4x PS4™ and 4x PC** profiles stored in the controller)
Software interface (Advanced modes)
- Button mapping and shortcuts customisation
- Adjust the response curve of each stick
- Adjust the sensitivity and dead-band of each trigger
- Independently adjust the vibration motors intensity
- Change the right stick light for a custom look
- Live testing area
- Download and share profiles on www.nacongaming.com
Essentially, the Revolution Pro Controller 3 is looking very much like the Revolution Unlimited Pro, particularly with the inclusion of the customisable internal weights. What does seem to be even better is that this will have the ability to store four customisable PS4 profiles and four customisable PC profiles, giving you a huge number of options when using it. This will seemingly be used via the same software as the Revolution Pro Unlimited.
The one thing that still seems to be missing when it comes to the Nacon range of controllers is the inclusion of the light bar and in-built audio features of the DualShock range. This is likely keeping down the cost, though the Nacon Pro Controller 3 isn't going to be cheap, with an RRP of between €99.90 to €109.90.
Will it be worth it? Going by their previous output, I can't see why not.
