Razer has announced the Razer Serval, a multi-platform Bluetooth controller designed for Android, PC, and the Razer Forge TV. Smartphones can also be clipped onto the controller with an adjustable game clip, providing for a better mobile gaming experience with a proper directional pad and buttons.
The Razer Serval takes design cues from the Razer Sabertooth Xbox 360 controller, with a very similar button layout and design. It can be used wirelessly or wired with a micro USB to USB cable that is provided along with the controller. That being said, the Serval does not work with the Xbox One, and it’s possible that the company is focusing solely on the Serval to work with its new Forge TV and Android devices first before venturing into making a new Xbox One controller.
The smartphone clip resembles the Dual Shock 4 mount from PlayStation to allow games to be streamed to the Sony Xperia Z3, it would be interesting to see if anyone can come up with a way to get the Serval to work with the PS Now app.
With a price tag of US$80 (about RM285), this might be a deal-breaker for most consumers. It will be available in the first quarter of 2015, and if you want more information, you can visit the official product page.
