Razer to make Xbox One controllers, arcade sticks and more

New, 24 comments

Entertainment hardware manufacturer Razer is partnering with Microsoft to create peripherals for the Xbox One, the companies announced today.

Razer's Xbox One product line will include controllers, an arcade stick and more, according to a press statement. The company has previously worked with Microsoft peripherals and accessories for the Xbox 360.

"Razer is dedicated to improving the overall experience from the games themselves to the player, be it console or PC," Razer CEO and creative director Min-Liang Tan said in a press statement. "By working with a company as prestigious as Microsoft on a system as sought-after as the Xbox One, we'll be able to accomplish just that."

More information on specific products and launch dates will be made available in the coming weeks.

Last summer, Tan tweeted that Razer doesn't make peripherals for the PlayStation line of consoles because he doesn't play his own PlayStation 3 that much. To tweets responding to his statement, Tan said he would rather "design stuff I actually want as a gamer rather than sell stuff to gamers for money." Currently there is no word on company plans for PlayStation 4 line.
