Nyko Technologies today announced that its new premium PS3 controller, the Raven, is now available in select retail outlets, including Amazon.com and GameStop. At a price tag of only $34.99, the Raven features a Soft Feel Surface for superior grip, a built-in rechargeable Lithium-ion battery that lasts up to 25 hours, and full vibration support.
The Raven is available in two configurations. The Raven Standard configuration is laid out with symmetrical analog stick placement similar to the DualShock™3. The Raven Alternate configuration swaps the position of the left analog stick and directional pad. This gives gamers an ergonomic alternative to Sony’s layout and is
a great option for players seeking a more comfortable controller for gaming sessions. New to the design of both controllers is the ability to swap the assignments of the bumper (L1/R1) and trigger (L2/R2) buttons, allowing the user to customize their gameplay experience and take advantage of the Raven’s improved ergonomic triggers.
