The annual CES 2020 meet seems like it happened a decade ago considering how the situation is around the world. Despite all the pandemic situation, companies are doing their best to keep sales and products as normal as possible. After all, gaming during lockdown is considered a popular option even by the WHO. Razer Kishi, Android gaming controller which was originally unveiled at CES 2020 is now available for sale.
Similar to how Razer has always priced their accessories and peripherals quite expensive, the Kishi is not a cheap solution from a Chinese manufacturer. Instead, if you are a serious Android gamer and have plenty of titles on your phone or even own an Asus gaming phone, you should get this one. It instantly converts your phone into a gaming platform similar to the PS Vita or maybe the Nintendo Switch handheld console.
Being a branded product assures the best quality of plastic used for the build. If there are any connectivity issues, you will be able to comfortably redeem it from the official seller Razer. All these premium features demand an expensive price tag of $80 and if you are already into PC gaming or even on consoles, probably this wouldn’t sound too expensive to your liking.
Razer Kishi Android gaming controller is now available in major markets. The design looks quite similar to the Nintendo Switch Joy Cons. The D-Pad paves way for an immersive gaming experience as you would do on an Xbox controller even though you will be playing the game on a mobile platform. It is also designed in a such a way that the connection is done using the USB C port on your phone which gets rid of any latency issues.
Razer has made it compatible with Google Stadia, the cloud gaming streaming service. An iPhone compatible version of the Kishi is in the making and let’s hope it is not more expensive than this Android controller.
