Hyperkin announces Xbox Cortana Edition Duke controller, pre-orders available
Following the success of the Hyperkin Duke Xbox One controller, Hyperkin has chosen to create a brand new version of its recall of the original Xbox controller with the Cortana Edition Duke Xbox controller. This version of the controller, created to celebrate 20 years of Halo, has a dark purple color reminiscent of Cortana in Halo: Combat Evolved. The design also highlights an image of Cortana itself on the right side of the controller, and there’s even a little Cortana “montage” video built into the Xbox button that plays when you press it.
The controller, like the original Hyperkin Duke, also comes with precision analog triggers and vibration feedback. It uses a wired connection and is compatible with Xbox consoles and Windows PCs. The huge chassis can be difficult to use if you have small hands, but most people generally don’t have a problem using the Duke otherwise.
Do you think the controller is one of the best Xbox accessories for retro gamers, or are you not a fan? Let us know in the comments. The Xbox Cortana Edition Duke controller is slated for release on November 15, 2021, which marks the 20th anniversary of Halo: Combat Evolved. The controller costs $ 90 and can be pre-ordered right now on the Hyperkin website.
