Razer has unveiled a new controller variant for Xbox known as the Razer Wolverine V2 Chroma. Compatible with Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC, it aims to give the Xbox Elite Controller a run for its money.
Priced at £149.99 / $149.99, the Razer Wolverine V2 Chroma comes with a variety of snazzy features. While it may be a wired controller, it fits in with the Xbox aesthetic seamlessly with its bulky design and RGB lighting. It includes various options, such as six multi-functional buttons at the back and on the top of the controller, interchangeable thumbstick caps and the ability to adjust the triggers.
"Where’s the fun in winning if you can’t do it your way? With the Razer Wolverine V2 Chroma, next-gen customizability is now. Armed with extra remappable buttons, Razer Chroma RGB, swappable thumbsticks and more, you’ll always be spoiled for choice when it comes to tearing up the competition."
If you're wondering where you've seen this before, the standard version of the Razer Wolverine V2 (the non-Chroma edition) released at the launch of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S last year, costing £99.99 / $99.99. The new version adds the RGB lighting, along with four extra customisable triggers on the back.
You can take your pick in regards to which version grabs your interest more, and both are on sale at the official Razer website (links below) along with a variety of additional retailers. The new one seems to be getting good reviews so far!

Love the look of it but that price for wired?!
Unfortunately would need a really long cord and then I'd be terrified of someone tripping over it and pulling my XSX over lol
On the topic of razer I would love them to make a razer kishi version two with a headphone port, as when my misses has the tv and I play on the kishi out loud I usually get sent upstairs to play 😂
@UltimateOtaku91 Bluetooth headphones? It's what I use with my Razer Kishi - I got booted off the big TV so ended up doing the "drive every road in FH4" achievement with my phone.
Scouring the map for little grey lines on such a small screen wasn't fun.
Talking of FH4 and headphones though, I jumped a mile when the start up music played - forgot how loud some of the opening screens / menu music can be on some games compared to the gameplay
@Widey85 I have some beats solo HD and there is some sound lag over Bluetooth and even when I watch anime on my tablet there's still sound lag with my headphones on Bluetooth, so maybe I just need better headphones lol or maybe a proper gaming set
@UltimateOtaku91 Potentially yeah - don't think I've had any noticeable lag on any of my Bluetooth headphones (and I've got 3 different pairs as people keep buying them as presents) regardless of if I'm watching something or playing games with the Kishi.
Admittedly I think I've only tried the sound when streaming from my XSX / XO - not from xCloud itself.
If it's not just age / breakdown it might be your Beats use an older Bluetooth version?
If you do go for a new pair I'd recommend buying from somewhere online so you've got the 14 days no-quibble returns on the off chance it's not your headphones - and in case you dislike them (I got my partner the SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless before, best reviewed and most expensive wireless headset going and had to send them back as the microphone seemed to be rubbish )
I'll only pay for wireless above $60
Being wired completely kills this for me. Between 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 lizards, and two things a bit more exotic, wires are just a no-go. Fortunately the price alone is off putting given the generally shoddy nature of Razer products to begin with.
@Royalblues A gyro wouldn't required anything to be redesigned in the console. Only an update to recognize inputs from gyro equipped controllers
I personally hate gyro ainibf, but so long as it is option, I say give people what they want.
@Royalblues Yep. Same thing with my Steam Controller. Internal gyro, haptics too, well before PS5 btw. You can use it to aim in any PC game, should you so desire.
