8BitDo is no stranger to delivering instantly loved retro-themed gaming controllers from third parties.
This isn’t a ruse, though. The controllers, such as the 8BitDo Pro 2, offer an undeniably quality feel, heaviness, and a variety of capabilities that will win over any player worth his salt. Amazon is now selling the 8Bitdo Pro 2 Wired Controller for Xbox for $38.20 delivered as part of their newest video game accessories deal. Normally $45, this is a 15% reduction, matching the Amazon all-time low, and only the second significant discount we’ve seen there. This one connects directly with iOS and Android to access the 8Bitdo Ultimate Software and is compatible with Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Windows 10.
8BitDo’s Ultimate Wired Controller Is Easily The Best In The Market
Users may build unique button mapping profiles, modify the joystick and trigger sensitivity, vibration damping, and more, in addition to two “pro-level” back buttons and the typical slate of front-side controls. A 3.5mm headphone port, a traditional D-pad, and a 3-meter cord are all there and correct. For additional information, see our launch coverage. Here are all the specifics on the new Pro 2 Wired Controller, as well as a closer look at the company’s first genuinely Xbox-inspired gamepad, which was released in March.
These gamepads, which are currently available for pre-order for $45, contain 8Bitdo’s characteristic asymmetrical analog joysticks as well as the customization tools we’ve come to know and love. The 8BitDo Pro 2 gives off significant Game Boy and Super NES controller vibes to the untrained eye, and that’s by purpose. It’s a mash-up of the looks and feels of numerous controllers that give it an unmistakable familiarity. To provide you with a tighter grip, the greyish (or black) front gives way to a textured back. Longer, more pleasant gameplay is made possible by the ergonomic handles.
