Razer, a leading supplier of high-end gaming hardware, software and systems, has announced the Razer Atrox Arcade Stick for Xbox 360, the final product following an extensive beta testing program. The device will help fans of old-school video games to play their favourite titles using an authentic controller.
Tested by some of the world’s best pro-gamers and fighting game community (FGC) members all over the world, the Razer Atrox arcade stick is constructed with modders and tournament gamers in mind. Featuring premium quality Sanwa components, the 10 highly responsive buttons and a precision eight-way joystick allow gamers to strike instantly and surely, game after game, while maintaining peak performance and reliability.
An extremely moddable controller, the inside of the arcade stick platform opens up at the touch of a button, making the Razer Atrox a breeze to customize for all tastes and play styles. Users can swap in their own personal designs for a unique look, while also getting access to the internal compartments and honeycomb structure for easy screw mounting.
The easily accessible internal compartment of the Razer Atrox reveals dedicated slots to store an included alternate bat top joystick, the detachable cable, and a screwdriver for modding, giving gamers plenty of room for storage as they travel around dominating FGC events.
“Following a huge beta testing program, we are confident that we have built an arcade stick enthusiasts will love. We know that the Fighting Game Community is huge on modding their arcade sticks, and that is why we made the Razer Atrox extremely mod friendly. We are excited to see what extreme mods the Razer Atrox will be the base for,” said Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director.
The Razer Atrox arcade stick will be available in the coming weeks worldwide for $199/€199.
