Pro Compact controllers are aimed at more casual gamers who still want a touch of the professional, with a smaller, more comfortable design and slightly less customization options. You'll still have programmable buttons, trigger sensitivity control, and much more with the Pro Compact controllers, but the more dimunitive size can be a big plus for gamers who prefer portability, or if you just have smaller hands. The controller was also shown off in both black and white, giving a players a chance to match their controller with their new console.
Nacon is joining the increasingly competitive cloud gaming arena with the debut of two new controllers specially build for use with Microsoft's Xbox Cloud Gaming, a feature that allows Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers to stream full Xbox games to their Android device and play with a controller (and sometimes touch controls). With Nacon, you'll have a choice between the standard MG-X, which features a more compact and portable design, or the MG-X Pro, whichs to offer as close to a full controller experience as possible without sacrificing the ease-of-use of this form factor.

I like that option for the phone. The Kishi is growing on me, but something more like a regular controller could be cool.
Interesting options for cloud gaming. We need more of those. And cheaper than the always-premium oriented Razer.
