The Controller

The controller is similar to Xbox and PlayStation controllers. The TRON’s controller has two analog sticks and a set of four buttons. Like the Xbox One controller, the 4 pad of buttons uses letters. It also has a trait seen on the PlayStation 4 controllers, a touchpad in the center. While the Playstation 4 controller features a rectangular touchpad, the TRON’s touchpad is circular. The controller is also rechargeable so there is no need for alkaline batteries. It connects to the console via Bluetooth.

While no release date is firm, there is a possibility that the processor will see an upgrade to the Tegra 5. The price tag is possibly priced at $99 which is the price of the Ouya, one of its competitors.
