New PS5 Pro Controller Takes “Modular” To A New High
The first officially licensed PS5 “pro-style” controller has been announced. Victrix, a premium accessory maker owned by PDP, has revealed its Pro BFG for PC, PS5, and PS4. Designed to function as a high-performance and fully customizable device, the Pro BFG controller offers a bunch of options for competitive gamers. It’s available to preorder now for $180 ahead of its December release.
It can be used in either wireless or wired mode, PC players can customize the button and EQ settings through the Victrix Control Hub app, and it has room for up to three unique profiles that can be toggled between on the fly.
It’s the technical side of this controller where things get amazing, as Victrix has designed this peripheral with modularity in mind. The reversible left module permits both the standard PlayStation stick configuration as well as offset sticks while fighting game fans can insert the Fight Pad module to replace the right analog stick with six microswitch buttons. If that’s not enough customization, you can also switch out the D-pad, analog stick caps, and analog stick gates to suit your needs.
You can also get four mappable back buttons, multi-position clutch triggers with five various stopping points–its useful for anyone who wants to fine-tune trigger pulls to their liking–and full 3D audio compatibility on PS5 when using a headset through the 3.5mm jack.
