This week, we get ready to rumble with a new fight stick for the PS4 and experience Superhuman Hearing with Turtle Beach’s new headset
Hori Real Arcade Pro 4 Kai
Ahead of a year full of fighting game releases on the PS4, including Dead or Alive 5: Last Round and Mortal Kombat X, peripherals manufacturer Hori has brought its latest fight stick to the console.
The Real Arcade Pro 4 Kai is officially licensed by Sony and is compatible with both the PS4 and the PS3.
Similar in design to the previously announced special edition Dead or Alive 5: Last Round arcade stick controller, the Pro 4 Kai features a touch panel at the back in order for it to mimic the touchpad control offered by the PS4’s DualShock 4 controller.
The device also includes a side button panel, which provides a turbo function and stick control toggle switch, as well as allowing players to configure buttons as they desire.
A handy carry handle is additionally integrated into the pad.
With regards to internal hardware, the Kai 4 Pro boasts Hori’s Hayabusa lever and Kuro buttons.
These parts are also found in Taito’s Vewlix arcade cabinets in Japan, and are now used in all of Hori’s arcade stick peripherals due to their popularity among dedicated fighting game fans.
Release Date: March 13th
Turtle Beach XO Seven Pro
Turtle Beach’s XO Seven Pro is the first gaming headset for the Xbox One officially licensed by the international eSports organisation Major League Gaming (MLG).
The headset also boasts Turtle Beach’s brand new Superhuman Hearing technology.
By pressing the Superhuman Hearing button, players can make harder-to-hear soft sounds such as footsteps and weapon reloads much easier to hear. Such an ability is particularly desirable for fans of multiplayer shooters, as audio cues like these can give gamers a tactical advantage over their enemies.
The ear cushions of the XO Seven Pro are constructed from comfortable and noise-isolating memory foam. The whole headset is designed with tournament use in mind, with durability a focus.
A removable microphone and mobile adapter cable for use with PC and smartphones/tablets are two further features.
Inside of the ear cups sit 50mm Neodymium speakers, specifically tuned for use with Xbox One. Outside, the device can be customised with swappable speaker plates.
Included with the XO Seven Pro is the new Ear Force Headset Audio Controller Plus, which connects the headset to the Xbox One wireless controller. The gadget adds variable mic monitoring, which normalises the user’s voice to avoid shouting, and selectable audio presets.
