Something to look forward to: Using a console controller instead of a mouse/keyboard combo for our PC games can in some cases significantly improve the experience – sometimes they are a necessity – but their use often comes with limitations, e.g. B. Lack of adaptation. With the Victrix BFG Pro Controller that’s not a problem.
The PDP sub-brand Victrix is known for their high-end controllers such as the Pro FS Arcade Fight Sticks and the Gambit Dual Core Tournament Controller for PC and Xbox. This December, the company will launch the Victrix BFG Pro Controller, a $180 controller for PC (X-Input), PS4, and PS5.
Paying close to $200 for a controller is no small expense, but Victrix’s upcoming device is not only officially licensed by Sony Interactive Entertainment, but it’s also incredibly modular and customizable.
The controller’s default layout is very similar to that of the PlayStation: two analog sticks at the bottom, a touchpad on the left, and the square, circle, triangle, and X buttons on the right. However, the modules can be flipped or swapped out using the included hex screwdriver to suit a player’s preference.
If you rotate the left module to place the stick on top, it’s more like an Xbox controller. Victrix’s product is likely to please fans of fighting games thanks to the fight-stick-style six-button section that can replace the right module.
If that’s not enough customization for you, there are also three different styles of D-Pad: the diamond-shaped one from Victrix, a classic PlayStation-style D-Pad, or one with eight inputs that’s more Xbox-like. It also comes with shorter and longer sticks and interchangeable stick gates for more precise movements.
Elsewhere, the Pro BFG, which can be used wired (USB-C) or wirelessly, has multi-position clutch triggers that can be adjusted with five different breakpoints, although they’re not rumble or adaptive like the PS5 controllers. It also features a 3.5mm headphone jack and rubberized front/rear grips.
Users can also configure the controller’s buttons and EQ settings using the free Victrix Control Hub software. Up to three audio and three key profiles can be saved and switched between them on the fly with the profile key.
The Pro BFG is available for pre-order now ahead of its December launch for $179.99.
