Razer announces Panthera arcade stick for the PS4, available now

Only hours after Mark "MarkMan" Julio announced his work with the company and following hints of use from players such as Infiltration and Xian in recent months, Razer has formally announced its first arcade stick made for the PlayStation 4.

Called the Panthera, this is Razer's third arcade stick, succeeding the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of the Atrox line. This stick will be designed to work on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Using the Atrox as a basis, players can expect the Panthera to feature a detachable USB cable, easy internal access, an anti-slip rubber mat and all Sanwa Denshi arcade parts. Instead of the common green color palette artwork found in the Atrox sticks, the Panthera has shades of dark blue. When it comes to special controls such as Touch Pad and the Home button, they are all placed in front of the Vewlix layout. The Options/Start and Share/Select buttons are still on the right side for convenient access.

Previously known for only making controllers specifically for Microsoft's Xbox platforms, the Panthera joins the Raiju controller as the first two PS4 peripherals by the Taiwan-based company. Min-Liang Tan, Razer's Co-Founder and CEO, announced back in March that the company were working on PS4 products, including a stick, following the controversy of controller malfunctioning at Final Round 19.

You can order now directly on Razer's official store

Photo by Jasen HicksTo those looking to play older fighting games or general retro gaming on legacy consoles with modern arcade sticks, Jasen's Customs upgraded a popular multiplatform controller board.

Toodles' Multi-Console Cthulhu board is now easier to work with thanks to Jasen's Customs "EZ Build" version. This is a collaboration between Toodles and Jasen Hicks to sell a new version of the board.

Instead of the USB out featured in the original MC Cthulhu, the EZ Build board has a RJ45 out port so there is no need to solder any wires. This plug and play solution will allow easy support for PlayStation 2, Sega Dreamcast, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Turbografx-16 and more. While the screw-in terminal blocks return, players who prefer the 20-pin connections found on the Akishop Customs PS360+ or Brook Universal Fighting Board can expect it in the EZ Build MC Cthulhu. There is also support for Paradise Arcade Shop's Kaimana LED kit.

Preorders for the EZ Build MC Cthulhu can be found on Jasen's Customs' website. Check out the promotional video after the jump!
