Nacon’s New E-Sports Focused Controller Aims To Bring Precision To Players

Competitive E-Sports are dominated by the use of the classic Keyboard and Mouse even at the highest levels of play. Naccon hopes to change this with their PC-centric, E-sports focused Nacon GC-400ES controller. A crowd funding campaign to make this peripheral a reality, a crowdfunding campaign will be launched on Indiegogo on Monday morning.

What will set the Naccon GC-400ES Alpha Pad aside from other top tier hardware like the Razer Sabretooth or the Xbox One Elite?  The Alpha Pad includes two different modes that can be selected before use – the industry standard “X-Input” method used by the Xbox 360 and other controllers. Its second mode is what sets it apart – the Naccon GC-400ES can emulate a keyboard & mouse by using the included software. Players are able to create profiles for AAA games like League of Legends and Counter-Strike.

In terms of hardware the Naccon Alpha Pad with built-in memory for up to 4 game profiles, allowing players to switch their game of choice on the fly. The weight of the controller can also be adjusted to make sure that it fits into player’s hands perfectly.

The Naccon Alpha Pad GC-400ES has been under development for the past 18 months at the small electronics company. By partnering with French E-sports Tekken champion Norman “Gen1us” Chatreir the developers of this controller can ensure that the needs of hardcode players are well met.

More information about the Naccon GC-400ES is available on their official website or by watching their YouTube promotional video below. No pricing information is available at this time – but we will update this story when the crowdfunding campaign launches.
