Pre-orders for the old school Xbox One DUKE controller now live

Brad Stephenson

Hyperkin’s upcoming Duke Xbox One controller is now up for pre-order at GameStop. This new wired controller is inspired by the original Xbox console’s controller and uses the same overly-large design and even has a screen that plays the original Xbox loading animation when it’s turned on.

“The nicknamed “Duke” controller for the original Xbox was big, bold and tough,” Hyperkin has said of the accessory. “Hyperkin’s Research and Development team sought the assistance and the blessing of Seamus Blackley, who played an integral part in the original Xbox team. The Duke sports a faithful recreation of the original controller’s form-factor with some updated features: a logo display screen, left and right bumpers, and a 9 ft. detachable cable.”

The new Duke controller will work with all Xbox One consoles and Windows 10 PCs with a USB port. Are you planning on buying the Duke? Let us know in the comments below.
