NACON has announced that the Revolution 5 Pro is now available for pre-order ahead of its release next month in October 2023. Available in white or black color options and officially licensed by PlayStation, this is a new controller for PS5, PS4, and PC that can be used either wired or wirelessly, featuring an advanced design and cutting-edge technology, including a new d-pad that appears to be designed for players whose favorite direction is up. Another highlight is the company’s magnetic Hall effect technology, which is said to eliminate stick drift.

“This new model in the Revolution line is the culmination of years of development and NACON’s passion for gaming. We wanted to create the best controller possible, a controller that would give gamers the upper hand. The Revolution 5 Pro combines the best of our expertise, technological innovation and ergonomics,” said Yannick Allaert, Head of Accessories Division at NACON. “I want to thank Sony Interactive Entertainment, our long-time partner, who has enabled us to develop this product in the best way possible.”

The Revolution 5 Pro is the result of years of research as well as constant discussion with players and professional gamers about previous NACON controllers. The result is a unique controller for players in terms of design, ergonomics, comfort, precision and technological innovation. Among the new features is Hall Effect technology which allows for greater precision, with the joysticks and triggers, as well as a very long service life.

Compatible with PS5, PS4 and PC, used wired or wireless, the officially licensed Revolution 5 Pro will be the perfect ally for competitive gamers who require high performance. As well as being fully customisable to suit every player, the controller can be used more than 10 hours before recharging. An additional benefit for gamers is that it connects to wireless headsets via Bluetooth as well as wired ones via the included 3.5mm jack.
