Say Congratulations! to your recent high school or college grad the right way with one of these 12 great gift ideas.
We’ve always been fans of the gaming mice put out by Razer over the years, and now the PC peripheral company we know and love has moved into the console space. The new Onza line of Xbox 360 controllers come fully loaded with tons of extra features, most of which will delight even the most dedicated Xbox gamer.
The Onza Tournament Edition is a wired input device that takes virtually every aspect of the standard Xbox 360 controller and builds on it. Both analog sticks come with built-in adjustable resistance, so you can customize how your sticks respond even further than Halo’s software options. The enhanced precision D-Pad, which is physically split, should be a welcome feature for any Street Fighter IV fan who isn’t already rocking a MadCatz FightStick. Even the A-B-X-Y action buttons have been infused with the same HyperResponse tech found in Razer’s gaming mice.
Along with the four trigger buttons that would normally find, the Onza includes two additional programmable buttons, which can be set to mimic any of the other buttons on the controller. If you would rather have the “A” button as a trigger without losing the functionality of the normal trigger controls, you now have that option.
In the PC gaming realm, most gamers tend to shy away from wireless peripherals, so Razer is keeping the Onza wired for this reason. Plus the 15 foot long USB cable allows you to use the Onza with your PC, too.
Since there’s no price premium over the Wireless Xbox 360 controller, the Onza brings all of its extra features to the table without charging you an arm or a leg. There’s no guarantee that the Onza will get you more frags in Halo or Gears of War, but at least your graduate won’t have any excuse for sucking now.
