The X91 – a 90s-style controller for Xbox One will be available on Feb. 21. Officially licensed by Microsoft, the X91 harkens back to a time – a simpler time – when controllers easily fit in your palms and every button was accessible at a twitch’s length.
The 16 and 32-bit era gave the video game world some of the best and timeless gamepads of all time. Hyperkin aims to bring back the mawkish (yet justified) nostalgia of couch potato gaming, while serving the modern gaming community. Jesse Aragon, an engineer in Hyperkin’s R&D team, feels the X91 caters to a diverse group of Xbox One owners. Of course, he should know. He helped develop it.
“Hyperkin Labs has included the best of two worlds: throwback gaming mixed with competitive build quality,” Aragon said. “Our goal for the controller was to bring back the form factor we grew up with and modernize it for the hottest games on Xbox One.”
Also compatible with Windows 10 PCs and tablets via USB, the X91’s modern features include precision analog triggers, which sit comfortably behind the shoulder buttons, and a 3.5 mm headset jack. Although the gamepad bears retro design, one touch reveals its modern ergonomics. It’s perfect for any game on Xbox One.
