Sony targets eSports market with officially licensed 'pro controllers'

Sony is targeting the eSports market with two new officially licensed pro controllers designed and manufactured by Razer and Nacon. 

Newsbrief: Sony is targeting the eSports market with two new officially licensed pro controllers designed and manufactured by Razer and Nacon. 

The gamepads will be coming to Europe this year -- there's no word on a global release, yet -- and sport a number of reworked and customisable features such as extra triggers and button mapping to give competitive and pro players more choice. 

Unlike Microsoft, which has already released an upmarket "Elite" controller for the Xbox One, this will be Sony's first foray into the market this generation. 

The PlayStation creator is keeping pricing details under wraps for the moment, but you can find a full spec breakdown for both pads over on the official PlayStation blog.
