Razer Launches New Sabertooth Controller For Xbox 360

For the gamers looking to get an edge over the competition, Razer have launched a new model of controller entitled the Sabertooth.  The successor to the popular Onza model, the Sabertooth sports many new features and improvements. including (but not limited to): additional inputs in the form of two removable rocking switches, OLED screen for easy customization, raised ABXY buttons and smoother D-pad, and removable braided cord for portability.  All the details on it can be found on the Sabertooth page on the Razer site.

Current owners of the Onza looking to upgrade will be very pleased, as Razer offers a discount for loyal fans via their Step-Up program.  Simply plug in your info and your Onza’s serial number, and get a coupon for $10 USD off the Sabertooth.  If you’re interested, take a look here for more info.

As with the Onza, the Sabertooth looks to further augment and improve your gaming experience – and I wonder if this one will get temporary ban from MLG too.  Stay tuned to GamerLiving for a full review in the weeks to come!

    I bought my sabertooth few weeks after launch, and I only just had to
    retire it a few days ago after I accidentally stepped on it in the dark.
    Whereas I had to replace my 1st party controllers every 2 or 3 months, at most.

    I’ve not had problems with stuff
    breaking, but the squeaks and sticks and ways things come out of the factory I
    could easily believe that there are bigger defective part issues.
    On both occasions the alternative is missing minor features i rarely used
    (mouse is wired only, rather than wired/wireless, keyboard has no macro
    keys/backlight), but were sturdier quality and cost a ton less.

      I’ve been using my Onza TE for about two years now and I’m pretty satisfied with it overall. As heavy handed as I am, I figured the first thing to break on my TE would be the tensioners, but they’ve held up quite well. I’ll be reviewing the Sabretooth soon, so we’ll see how it stacks up.

    Razer seems to be one of those companies that have
    enough publicity to bring people into the world of “gaming” How long can you play with this controller
    before random buttons stop working?

    that buttons are low quality because they seem to push through the
    controller. It feels great at first but now it’s just a piece of junk.

  • sethbuckneryy

    I necessarily agree with your assertion that Microsoft is intentionally
    manufacturing low quality hardware, for future reference, there is a term for
    what you’re describing, and this is it. Razer sells mass produced trash and their
    offer of 10 dollars off this new controller for owners of the sabertooth is
    woefully inadequate.

    is wrecked. Left stick is super loose; Even the right stick has begun to suffer
    drift. The back button has to be smashed in to register. Only up and right on
    my D-pad work well…

    I want a new controller but not with all this extra crap on it.

  • simsonsf

    Thinking about buying the sabertooth since on
    my old Onza both the rubbers fully came off now.
    Why all people buy a sabertooth controller such a mad
    person. I know why because the trigger broke after them unboxing. they see a
    break joy stick a lost buttons, why razer can’t fix issues like this? For being
    busy of counting there dirty scamming money. How poor the razer companies.

    They’re not easy to reach with the tips of the index fingers. only a waste of money!this controller was very hard to use, looks
    like this have a little bit crack controllers, cannot be turned off
    manually without removing the batteries.

  • dejesusjonathantan

    There are not the two little rectangular holes on the sides of the headset plug to plug in the default headset. haha! wtf! no worth the penny i spend on it. i would be ashamed to recommend this to friends. The Tall joysticks are a good idea, but they function odd on this controller…I guess their placement stretches the thumbs too far.

  • bchareles

    People already spent their money and they are getting nothing. And not
    being able to cancel their orders is beyond stupid. Also, another
    thing… talking about all those achievements and team Razer wins is
    nothing but pathetic

  • sdanterlian

    Audio port broke after 2 weeks. Triggers limited programmable buttonscheap construction lighted buttons are worthless and distracting. Didn’t like the trigger buttons that much, right/left bumpers are tiny and right on top of programmed buttons. If it’s anything like the previous model, it will break in 3 weeks, then your replacement will break in 3 weeks, then after they’ve replaced it 4 or 5 times, they won’t honor the warranty anymore, which doesn’t roll over every time they send you a new one.

    cannot make a wireless controller so Microsoft monopolizes that whole part of the market. If there isa wireless controller that isn’t made my Microsoft then A. Microsoft is making money off it, or B. It’s a specialized controller. im preeffer to buy some cheap controller than this one.
    because, what is the use of this if its easy to be broke

  • gliliopop

    I had 3 Razer sabertooth controllers break on me after short use. Exchanged them all. I had the same problem on all three, the right analog stick (the one I would adjust) would start to stray. Usually pulling my aim downward. I’m hoping the fact that they removed the mechanical analog adjustment means that this problem won’t occur.

  • bgordongagan

    They have begun to wear down over time. they lasted well
    for over a year and a half, but the rubberized handles aren’t as good as they
    used to be and the sticks are wearing off.Suck like they. The Tall joysticks
    are a good idea, but they function odd on this controller…I guess their
    placement stretches the thumbs too far.

  • rcaytennomal

    I’d had it for about 1 week, playing
    some light Borderlands 2, and the left trigger started randomly pressing and undressing
    of its own accord, often putting me into iron sights repeatedly when I was
    trying to get somewhere, and when I was trying to aim, pulling me out. No
    response from Razer when I contacted them about this issue!

  • crockyrad

    too expensive for a simple looking device.and looks bulky.
    i would prefer to use a controller which i can have a good grip on. bumpers wrapped a little too far down the shoulders, my fingers would somehow press them while operating the triggers. Using the sticks causes the triggers to fire uncontrollably,
