The original controller for the first Xbox donned “The Duke” earned its name from being simply ginormous. Here we are 20 years later with controller design becoming more and more refined over the years. Though, there is still something nostalgic and oddly fun about playing with this beast. In celebration of Xbox’s 20th anniversary, Hyperkin is releasing three new wired versions of The Duke—the white or black Xbox edition one with a stylized 20 in the corner and the stunning translucent purple one featuring Cortana from the Halo series. Each is available for pre-order at $90 and will release December 15th.
