Know what's cool? Retro Fighters® is a family company. Just like us. That instantly creates a bond. Anyway, Retro Fighters in a nut shell offers highest-quality "aftermarket" gaming gear. To ensure that we keep dusting off our beloved old legacy systems - whom have provided us with so much fun - playing with them, experiencing them anew.

Aftermarket

What does Aftermarket mean? Well, on a gaming level it basically means: Selling of new hardware for a gaming platform that has become "legacy", in other words: a gaming platform that is no longer modern or from a previous generation. The manufacturer has either moved on with the current/next generation gaming platform OR has gone out of business. The manufacturer no longer produces new hardware for a particular platform (eg. controllers). Others, third party manufacturers, take over that role and manufacture hardware at the service of the gamers.

Controllers

Retro Fighters has mainfly focused on the gaming controller. They produce the highest of quality controllers! For any of the platforms they have developped products, they have devoted enormous amounts of time and research and development. They want to retain that "authentic" experience per platform. Think of originality of colour, controller looks and in a way even the original feel. However! Retro Fighters has provided each and every of their controllers with "modern" ergonomics and technology. With the latter, think of wireless gaming for example. Can you imagine not having that "wired mess" ever again. (and if you can't...just...you know...I mean...) But seriously, these days we are used to gaming from afar plus maybe having kids run around, totally ignoring wires, pulling down gaming console, Tv and controller in one foul sweep! And if you do dig wired gaming: their wired products are provided with a nice long cord. 

 

Bottom line is, some of these legacy controllers have aged hopelessly, sometimes on a FUBAR level. Especially for those gamers that did not develop muscle memory for the classic version of a controller. And if do you happen to switch from your PS5/Xbox Series/Switch Pro controller to one of 'dem oldies', lord lord lord, it can be a big pain getting used to it again. Hence the choice for modern ergonomics, as it is tried and true as per present day gaming demands, accross the complete platform line.

Best of Top 3

Retro Fighters is in most cases the best of the top 3, if you happen to look up which manufacturers offer the best aftermarket controllers. Especially on a wireless gaming experience. And let me tell ya', this is a mega market! Super saturated as well. Contrary to competitors, whom usually literally steal (ok..ok..copy) from the original concept and not in a good way. Even worse: messing up that authentic feel completely. You will not find that problem with Retro Fighters.

Price

What is REALLY cool, is that all of the Retro Fighters gear is really economically friendly, especially when comparing to the original manufacturers on a "new price" level. On one hand it proves quite challenging to find an actually "new" old gaming controller. And if you do happen to stumble on one: Good luck having an empty wallet. (and explaining that one to the significant other during dinner) But it is challenging to find controllers for old platforms in general period. Simply because demand is higher than supply. Thankfully, Retro Fighters has got you covered there, with sufficient supply. So Retro Fighters offers AND new AND an economical price tag AND sufficient supply! Why are we still talking about this!? I am already at the shopping cart!

Defender Bluetooth Edition is de grote broer van de originele Defender. Eindelijk Six-axis ondersteuning op de PS3 en GEEN dongle meer! YEEJ!!! (easy bob) En voordeel is, qua vorm is deze controller net als zijn broertje erg prettig. Het origineel van Sony is eigenlijk een ietwat kleine controller. Een veelgehoorde klacht van de inmiddels-volwassen-handen-mensen. Defender Bluetooth Edition heeft het kenmerkende Retro Fighters ergonomische en moderne design. En wederom zo enorm veelzijdig.

 

  • Beste Playstation 3 en 4 controller
  • Wake-up functionaliteit
  • Ergonomisch en modern design
  • Top kwaliteit
  • Draadloos EN géén dongle
  • Six-axis ondersteuning
  • Vibration feedback
  • Pressure sensitive buttons
  • Turbo functionaliteit
  • Lange batterijduur (10 uur)
  • Momenteel in Wit en Zwart verkrijgbaar.
  • LED-indicator voor player 1-4
  • Werkzaam op Playstation 3/4/5, Switch, PC

 

Kleuren

Defender Bluetooth Edition is verkrijgbaar in Wit en Zwart. "It's black, it's white, It's tough for you to get by (yeah, yeah, yeah)" Voor de PS5 fans is de overstap naar Defender Bluetooth naadloos qua feel en vormgeving van de controller, zo modern is ie.

 

Compatibility

Defender Bluetooth Edition is compatible op:

  • Playstation 3*
  • Playstation 4
  • Playstation 5**
  • PC

 

* Is ook compatible met PS1 en PS2 games op de backwards compatible Playstation 3 modellen. Dit kunnen andere 3rd party controllers niet.

** Volg voor PS5 compatibility de instructies die zo rondzweven op internet. De controller is niet native ontworpen voor de PS5, echter is er wel verbinding EN functionaliteit mogelijk voor PS4 games. Toch een degelijk alternatief voor die 70 ballen die zo'n Sony controller kosten...ofnie!?

 

Wake-up functie

Weet je wat cool is? Defender Bluetooth Edition heeft een wake-up functionaliteit. Iets wat eigenlijk alleen de Sony controllers kunnen. Wat houdt dat in? Je kunt de console hiermee activeren vanaf je luie stoel, met 1 druk op de home-knop van je Defender. Handig!

 

XMB menu

Met de Defender Bluetooth Edition kun je naar het XMB (main) menu (XMB = XrossMediaBar). Een unieke functie binnen aftermarket controllers. 

 

Six axis functionaliteit

Defender Bluetooth Edition heeft Six axis functionaliteit zoals het hoort en zoals het was op de Sony controllers. Andere 3rd party controllers kunnen dit niet of niet op dezelfde (kwalitatieve) manier.

 

Tip van Frankie Boy: "De controller is native ontworpen voor de PS3 en PS4. Waag jezelf dus aan een paar uitdagende spellen, zoals Tekken Tag Tournament 2/Tekken 7, om het D-pad even uit te testen qua feel. En natuurlijk GTAV om te verdwalen in die pracht en praal van San Andreas. Geen zorgen om een falende controller, die heb je niet. Die tuin komt morgen. Die rekeningen overmorgen. Die kinderen bij opa en oma dumpen (OF BETTER YET: MEE LATEN DOEN)" Frank, come on, dat zijn geen kinderspellen...
