Hyperkin's up-to-date version of the legendary 'Duke' Xbox controller is currently down to a record-low price at Amazon US. But stock is selling through fast, meaning you may want to act now if you want to secure the gamepad for yourself.
Its inherent clunkiness means it isn't quite one of the best Xbox controllers, but it's certainly one of the best early Black Friday Xbox controller deals we've seen so far. It's currently selling for just $42.69 at Amazon US, down from its usual retail price of $64.99.
For those unfamiliar, the 'Duke' is the term affectionately given to the original Xbox console's infamously mammoth controller. Its diabolical combination of oversized grips and tiny, thumb-destroying face buttons led to the manufacturer swiftly creating a slimmer controller with much better ergonomics overall.
Still, the Duke holds a special place in the hearts of gamers of the time. And the Hyperkin Duke Wired Controller for Xbox Series X captures that magic exquisitely. The controller is overall faithful to that original model, but modernities like the Xbox Series X's Share button and additions of the bumpers bring it more up to speed. Though, yes, those oddball white and black buttons are still present on this updated gamepad.
