Hyperkin Announces New Xbox Controller With Hall Effect Sticks And Impulse Triggers

Back in July, you may recall that GameSir announced the "world's first Xbox controller with Hall Effect Sticks", and now we've got another one coming from Hyperkin in the form of "The Competitor".

This controller was actually revealed a little while ago, but the addition of Hall Effect Sticks and Hall Effect Impulse Triggers is entirely new. Here's what Hyperkin has to say about these important features:

"The biggest update to the controller is the inclusion of hall effect analog sticks and hall effect impulse triggers. Hall effect sensors use magnets in their design to detect movement, meaning high precision gameplay without risk of deterioration. Say goodbye to stick drift and trigger wear!"

Hall Effect Sticks: Ensures quick, accurate, and responsive control, giving you the competitive edge in every game.

Hall Effect Impulse Triggers: Experience realistic feedback as you feel every shot, explosion, and impact, with hall effect precision.

The reason for the "Competitor" name is because of the unusual analog stick layout in this controller โ€” it's obviously much more reminiscent of PlayStation rather than Xbox โ€” although it's still exclusively being built to support Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and Windows PC devices.

We don't have too many more details yet, with Hyperkin stating that information on pricing and a release date will be revealed at some point in the future. In the meantime, we'll throw some images down below.
