HexGaming has announced its new Hex Rival Pro PS5 controller, aimed at competitive gamers as “the most comfortable esports controller out there”. It also features interchangeable thumbsticks and on-the-fly remapping buttons for advanced personalization. After rumors of Sony making its own “Pro” controller faltered, third-parties like HexGaming have seen fit to fill the void.

Key Features of Hex Rival Pro
- Interchangeable thumbsticks, wired or wireless gaming, swapping thumbsticks in seconds, and rear button configurations that can be reassigned on the fly.
- Players can activate the remap program during gameplay and assign a maximum of 15 buttons (X, O, Triangle, Square, Up, Down, Left, Right, L1, L2, R1, R2, L3, R3, Touchpad) to the rear buttons.
- 6-in-1 interchangeable thumbsticks, 3 different heights, 2 different ergonomic thumb grip designs, curved or concave. Gamers can operate the controller flexibly, acquire targets faster and improve accuracy.
The back button control has long been considered a must-have feature on pro controllers. After the PS4 controller received an official back button attachment, many thought that Sony would finally release its own Pro PS5 controller to compete with the Xbox Elite pad. Unfortunately that never happened.
Since the release of the PS5, third parties have taken it upon themselves to bring custom pads among gamers who demand that competitive edge. HexGaming and its Hex Rival Pro are the latest version on the market.
Those who purchase the Hex Rival Pro (starting at $199.99) get the controller itself, six interchangeable thumbsticks, and instructions on how to use the remapping feature and other features.
