I’ve gotta say, I didn’t realize anyone had fond memories of the gigantic original Xbox controller, but Hyperkin brought it back for the Xbox One and PC for a reason, I suppose. The Duke is almost entirely faithful to the original, for better or worse, but added in a couple of small shoulder buttons to mirror the black and white buttons, and an OLED screen on the front that plays the original Xbox’s boot animation when you start using the controller. Was that necessary? Hell no. But it’s awesome.
Today on Amazon, you can get the green collector’s edition bundle for $48, complete with the controller, an Xbox One X skin, and a month of Xbox Game Pass. Somehow, that’s $2 less than the controller by itself, which is currently marked down to an all-time low price.
