Manufacturer of gaming accessories 8BitDo introduced its first Xbox controller-style wired gamepad called the Ultimate Wired Controller. Pre-orders have already started Amazon for $45. Customers will receive the controller after March 31st.
With this gamepad, 8BitDo uses asymmetrical analog sticks for the first time. Previously, the company only released controllers with symmetrical stick placement, like the DualSense, DualShock, and Nintendo Pro Controller.
In addition, the new gamepad offers:
- 3.5mm audio jack;
- remappable buttons with Ultimate software on Xbox, Windows, Android and iOS;
- two rear button leaves;
- Vibration trigger and its settings.
8BitDo also claims to have paid special attention to the ergonomics and grip of the controller. The Ultimate Wired Controller is based on the design of the Xbox Series native X/S controller. The controller also includes a separate share button.
