Updated March 19, 2019: The collector's edition has been discounted to $48 on Amazon.
The original Xbox launched with a massive controller lovably referred to as the "Duke." The accessory was absolutely massive in terms of size, but surprisingly comfortable to hold if you had larger hands. As we all know, nostalgia is a powerful force, and Xbox creator Seamus Blackley teamed up with Hyperkin to release an updated version this year. While there have been numerous editions over the past few months, the "Hyperkin Xbox Classic Pack for Xbox One X Collector's Edition" stands out.
The $89.99 package contains the green Duke, one month of Xbox Game Pass, and a sticker for your Xbox One X which makes it look like the original Xbox. The controller itself features bumpers and other modern buttons which make it work seamlessly with an Xbox One. There's also a gorgeous organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screen in the center which plays the original Xbox loading screen when you turn it on. Lastly, there's "impulse trigger" support for games like Forza Horizon 4.
Keep in mind that the updated Duke costs $69.99 by itself and is a wired controller. You can't use it without cables on an Xbox One. Luckily, it comes with a nine-foot detachable USB cable so you can easily use it from your couch. If you loved the original or want one for your collection, be sure to check it out on Amazon. The package should ship from the retailer on December 3, 2018.
