Not even the all singing, all dancing Nacon Pro Revolution can be used without first being plugged in. While the Hori Onyx may not come with E-Sports presets, downloadable from the internet for specific games, it is certainly more suited to the casual gamer. Better still, it holds Sony’s stamp of approval making it the only third party wireless controller to buy for your PS4.
Bear in mind however, that the Hori Onyx is still lacking in a few features PS4 gamers have come to take for granted. It has no speaker, as seen on the Dualshock 4 and no light bar on the back. That basically rules it out for using in conjunction with a VR headset. Although, if you’re a PS4 gamer who longs for an Xbox controller, and who isn’t interested in VR, the Hori Onyx may well be for you.
If the Hori Onyx has caught your eye, it will be available for purchase from January 15th and its price is yet to be announced. For now, like a majority of Hori’s products, the Onyx will only be available in Europe.
