Razer Wolverine V2 Pro: New controller launches with PlayStation 5 compatibility to rival Sony DualSense Edge
Razer has presented the Wolverine V2 Pro, a new wireless controller for the PlayStation 5 and the PC. While more expensive than Sony's DualSense Edge, the Wolverine V2 Pro will ship this side of 2023. Conversely, Sony will not start shipping the DualSense Edge until January 26, 2023. Incidentally, Razer has put the PlayStation licence to good use with Wolverine V2 Pro, which stays true to the colour scheme of the original DualSense while adding a few features that it lacks.
On the one hand, the Wolverine V2 Pro supports Razer Chroma, the company's RGB lighting system. On the other hand, Razer allows you to freely adjust key bindings via a smartphone app, along with vibration motor strength and trigger or analog stick sensitivity. Additionally, the controller's 8-way D-pad utilises microswitches for precise haptic feedback. It is worth noting that the Wolverine V2 Pro is incompatible with the PlayStation 4 or any Xbox consoles.
Separately, Razer has included HyperTriggers, which it claims mimics 'the actuation in our fastest gaming mice'. Moreover, HyperTriggers have multiple operation methods, with a slider providing a customisable choice between short and long strokes. Similarly, the Wolverine V2 Pro has interchangeable analog sticks and configurable back buttons. Meanwhile, Razer boasts that the controller will last up to 10 hours with Razer Chroma activated or up to 28 hours with this feature disabled. For reference, the Wolverine V2 Pro can be connected to a PlayStation 5 or PC via a USB cable. Currently, Wolverine V2 Pro is orderable in the Eurozone for €299.99 and US$249.99 in the US, where it will start shipping on December 31, 2022.
