Yellow PS4 Edge
As you can see, the PS4 Edge is one beautiful controller. While aesthetics are paramount, it is also important to know if this beauty performs as good as it looks. After a trial run, we are happy to report that the Edge is fully-functional, comfortable and sleek. It definitely upped our reaction times and gave us an edge (pun completely intended) over the competition. Let’s check out the fantastic custom buttons that Imagine Customs has added to make the Edge unique –
Here’s what Imagine Customs had to say about their patent-pending controller buttons:
Our patent-pending button technology is competition approved, and it allows the user to react quicker in those intense first-person-shooter (FPS) moments. Games like Call Of Duty, you’re really relying on instincts, and those quick reactions – Our buttons help increase the amount of time that you have to react in those moments. The buttons on the back can be mapped to any button, ensuring the user has the most personalized load out.
Typically, when you want to jump, or crouch in Call Of Duty – You need to move your fingers from the thumbsticks to do this, our buttons that are placed on the back of the controllers shell, help you achieve less movement. You won’t need to sacrifice thumb stick movement, because you’ll be using different fingers to jump/crouch, or even reload.
They are tactically placed buttons, to ensure every seconds counts.
For those who play FPS games or games that simply require a quick reaction, the Edge is a must have. As states by Imagine Customs themselves, these buttons are completely mappable and will allow the used to have a uniquely personalized experience.
Green Xbox One Edge
As with the PS4 Edge, we were pleasantly surprised to find that the Xbox One Edge was just as attractive and functional. It sports the same customization and mappable buttons to allow the user to create a personalized experience. Check out how streamlined and gorgeous this controller really is:
