It’s debatable how immersive of an experience Razor’s newest gaming controller, the Hydra, can provide, but that’s exactly what they’re promising to PC users.
The controllers, which effectively are two Nintendo Wii Nunchuks, utilize magnetic motion sensing and promise ultra precise tracking down to 1mm and 1 degree movements, which should be folds above Nintendo’s offering.
Razor is selling the 2 motion sensing controllers for $125. Each controller has an analog stick, 4 face buttons, a trigger button and a bumper.
They’ll begin to take preorders in May with shipping expected to commence in June. Out the box it works with 125 games, including Portal 2, but you can expect more to arrive in the coming months.
