Victrix is well-known for producing high-quality PC and console gaming hardware, such as the Pro FS arcade stick that was released in August. Their products tend to be on the pricier side, but the higher quality more than makes up for this higher price. As of today, the Pro BFG controller has been announced by the PDP-owned company.
The Pro BFG is compatible with PS5, PS4, and PC games thanks to a license from Sony Interactive Entertainment. Features include low latency audio, full mod possibilities from within the Victrix Control Hub software, complete wireless and wired connectivity, a swappable face with button inputs, and a total of four programmable buttons on the rear (available on PC) .
If you’re a player who doesn’t like where the analog sticks are located in PlayStation, you might be pleased to know that you can swap their positions by flipping a switch on the controller’s left side. Also, with a six-face button configuration, Fighting games players can disable the right analog stick entirely.
The Pro BFG has a 3.5mm connector and is compatible with the PlayStation 5’s 3D Audio features, so the audio is likewise of high quality. The Victrix Control Hub app is where equalizer profiles are defined and modified, as well as where other buttons (such as the four back buttons) can be mapped to new functions.
Director of Product Development at Victrix, Trevor Lehr, discussed the controller’s characteristics. He said, “When we released the Gambit controller last year, we got many questions about when Victrix would launch a similarly pro-grade controller for PlayStation. 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.”
Victrix is taking pre-orders for the Pro BFG website for USD 179.99. We’ll keep you posted as additional details about Victrix’s upcoming products become available.
