New details are available for the new Horipad Xbox One wired controller. The gamepad is officially licensed by Microsoft and comes with many of the features you expect from the first-party version: impulse trigger, IR sensor and vibration feedback. Check out the current price of the newest Hori product right now on Amazon with this link. A photo of the controller is located below this paragraph.
The Horipad Xbox One controller is advertised to have accurate analog sticks, responsive buttons and triggers in addition to the self-proclaimed “best” directional pad. The pad, whose shell was crafted from “the highest quality polycarbonate,” was also created to ergonomically fit into your hands. Last but not least, you do not have to worry about batteries and recharging since the controller requires a wired connection to the console anyway.
The new Xbox One gamepad from Hori is out now. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative that the official first-party controller, then you should definitely check this one out.
