Third-party accessory company Turtle Beach is getting on the Xbox Cloud Gaming train with its latest mobile controller, the 'Atom'. This gamepad is another Nintendo Switch-like affair where the controller splits up and moulds around your mobile device of choice.
The Atom is officially licensed for Xbox, with Turtle Beach working alongside Microsoft to ensure smooth cloud gaming playback through Xbox Game Pass. Here are some of the pad's standout features:
- COMPACT & COMFORTABLE
The Atom magnetically fuses together into a convenient, compact shape to fit in your pocket, and console-style controls provide a familiar console experience to mobile.
- LOW LATENCY BLUETOOTH CONNECTION
The Atom connects to your Android device via Bluetooth connection and is formed from two independent modules that are connected via proprietary 2.4 GHz wireless link.
- MORE GAMING, LESS CHARGING
Each controller module is powered by its own battery cell, giving you 20-hours of total battery life on a single charge. When it is time to charge, the Atom quickly recharges in just 2.5 hours.
- CONSOLE LEVEL CONTROLS
Atom is equipped with full-size thumb-sticks, d-pad, bumpers, triggers and ABXY buttons for precise responsive controls on any cloud streaming title.
Interestingly, the Atom also comes in a range of different colours so you can really customize how this thing looks while gaming on the go. We'll drop a few images down below of the controller's various configurations, which'll set you back $100 US or £90 here in the UK.
