Hyperkin’s Xbox 360-Style Controller Gets Release Date on Xbox Series X|S
Hyperkin, the company that makes retro-inspired gaming accessories for modern-day consoles, is at it again. Instead of making an original Xbox controller this time, the company has decided to jump a generation and create an Xbox 360-style controller for the Xbox Series X|S called the Xenon.
The Xenon is set to come out on June 6 and will be priced at USD 49.99. You’ll be able to buy the controller in black, white, pink, or red.

Additionally, the 360-inspired controller will come with precision analog impulse triggers, a view and share button allowing you to take screenshots and record gameplay, vibration feedback, a 3.5 mm headset jack, and a detachable Type-C cable so you can charge/update your controller.
The controller was announced last November and is named after the original codename given to the Xbox 360’s first console iteration.
This isn’t the first time Hyperkin has decided to pay homage older Xbox consoles. On its website, you can purchase a Duke wired controller that works on the Xbox Series X|S and even the iconic single-ear-piece headset used in the 360 era.
You can play a pre-order for the Xenon controller on the Hyperkin Website on May 5.
