Back in May 2021, we covered a review for the excellent Nacon Xbox Pro Compact Controller. Accordingly, Andrew was impressed by its design, comfort, and usability. Furthermore, he highlighted the smaller build size and the inclusion of Dolby Atmos for headphones. Roll on nearly 18 months, and Nacon is at it again. This time, they have released a range of colourful controllers just in time for Christmas.
Now, you may discount non-Microsoft branded accessories, but I beg you to reconsider. Nacon has long been considered a phenomenal producer of high-end gaming peripherals. Thankfully, this new batch of gamepads is no different. With 4 new colours to choose from, and the original black and white controllers still available, you are spoilt for choice. Subsequently, you can pick from a red, blue, pastel blue, or a vivid colourlight version with six integrated LEDs that are fully customisable. Therefore, this bright controller can be as unique as the gamer that it is gifted. What’s more, each pad can be used on both Xbox or PC and boasts advanced customisation options. Consequently, you can adjust the stick and trigger sensitivity and there are programmable buttons.
Alongside this, the ergonomic design is perfect for long gaming sessions, and the stick travel and responsive buttons ensure you are always ahead of your competition. Moreover, this controller is 15% small than its rivals and this makes it perfect for younger gamers or those that don’t want a cumbersome and bulky accessory.
