PS4 version Elite Controller and the famous ASTRO Gaming "ASTRO C40 TR Controller" will be released in Japan!

PS4版Elite Controllerと名高いASTRO Gamingの「ASTRO C40 TRコントローラー」日本発売決定!

Controllers are a gamer's workhorse!
Just as musicians are particular about their instruments or IT people are particular about their keyboards and mice, gamers are particular about their controllers.
In the gaming community, it's common to have a favorite manufacturer's controller, or to swap out or customize the buttons and sticks. The PS4 controller does not offer a wide range of options.

The " ASTRO C40 TR Controller ", which can be called the PS4 version of the Elite Controller that was previously featured on funglr Games, is now officially available in Japan!

PS4 licensed controller


The ASTRO C40 TR Controller is a product of Logitech International, a leading company in the global digital device and gaming device market. Logitech International's Japanese subsidiary is Logitech Corporation, so the name "Logitech" may ring a bell with many people.

ASTRO Gaming is the gaming brand of Logitech International and Logitech Corporation.
ASTRO Gaming, which has continued to release numerous gaming devices to the world, is now ready to release the "ASTRO C40 TR Controller".
The ASTRO C40 TR Controller is a licensed PS4 controller, so you can be sure that the stability of the connection and operability are second to none!

The "ASTRO C40 TR Controller" is a priority/wireless controller that can be used with PS4 and PC.
The "TR" in the product name stands for Tournament Ready, and the controller has been designed for use in tournaments, with an emphasis on convenience and functionality.
The analog sticks and D-pad can be switched to your preferred position, the trigger is located on the back of the unit, and the keys can be freely mapped.

We also received comments from Mr. k4sen, ASTRO Gaming brand ambassador and official caster of "Call of Duty (CoD)".

There is a growing demand for custom controllers in the Japanese CoD competitive scene. While custom controllers are the norm for players at international tournaments, 99% of players in Japan use stock controllers, putting players at a pre-game disadvantage and putting them at a disadvantage in a scene that is still very new to Japan.
The ASTRO C40 TR Controller is a revolutionary controller that raises the "playing field" to a global standard, and is the ultimate in customization and operability that lives up to its tournament-ready name. The stick layout conversion is compatible with both the Xbox, previously the platform of choice for competitive gaming, and the PS4®, the current platform with a strong player base in Japan, making it the perfect choice for virtually any player. The potential of this product is too great to mention here, including trigger stops and a case that has been considered for bringing it to competitions.
