HyperX has announced its first 'Designed for Xbox' gamepad at CES 2023 in the form of the HyperX Clutch Gladiate. As usual with third party pads this is a wired affair, but HyperX's headsets are pretty solid so we're looking forward to seeing how the accessory performs.
The manufacturer says its first officially licensed Xbox controller offers "ultra-comfort and precise control for extended console gaming sessions". The device's price is pretty reasonable too, coming in $34.99 in the US when it launches this March.
"HyperX Clutch Gladiate controller is built for Xbox players to help enhance their gaming experience and maximize performance. The officially licensed wired Xbox controller features dual trigger locks and remappable rear buttons to optimize control and adjust to different ways that various gamers play.
In addition, powerful dual rumble motors add immersive and intuitive force feedback cues. Plus, with textured grips, Clutch Gladiate provides a comfortable, secure grasp of the controller and it also features a 3.5mm stereo jack to easily connect to a wired headset."
The controller was announced alongside a pair of PC peripherals: the 'Pulsefire Haste 2' wired gaming mouse, and a wireless version of the very same model.
