- Today, the Spectra Infinity Enhanced Wired Controller for Xbox Series X|S aims to offer a compelling budget experience.

The New Xbox Wireless Controller for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S is already one of the best gaming controllers on the market, but plenty of players buy controllers from other manufacturers to meet their wishlists for budgets, features, and more. PowerA is one of the most-respected companies making Xbox accessories, and their latest Designed for Xbox controller, the Spectra Infinity Enhanced Wired Controller, is now available.
The Spectra Infinity sits right above its more mundane Spectra Enhanced sibling, which already earned its place on our list of best Xbox Series X|S controllers, with a number of enhancements and new features to accompany its slightly higher price tag. Fans of RGB, you'll want to pay closer attention to this controller.
The Spectra Infinity includes all of its little sibling's features, including texture grips, two programmable gaming buttons on the rear, the new Share button that's standard on Xbox Series X|S controllers, a scroll wheel for connected headsets, a wired-only connection, and a price tag that massively undercuts much of the competition (especially for the features on offer here).
On top of this, the Spectra Infinity offers three zones of RGB lighting with customizable profiles and thousands of potential lighting combinations, offering players a way to customize their controller on the fly. The triggers now have three-stage trigger locks, meaning players can customize how quickly the triggers activate when depressed. Both of these features come with a price increase, but the Spectra Infinity controller still comes in comfortably below official options from Xbox.

Use and love the first Spectra controller on my PC. Does the share button on this one work on the desktop? I ask because last time I checked, it doesn't work on the official Xbox controller when using it on a PC.
