8BitDo has a new pair of officially licensed media remotes for the Xbox Series X, Series S, and Xbox One that provide a more suitable driver for streaming services or consoles ’built-in 4K Blu-ray players. There are two versions available: slightly larger $ 24.99 black model which includes a full numeric keypad and a compact $ 19.99 white version. Both are pre-orderable on Amazon today, with delivery expected on September 15th.
We’ve usually liked 8BitDon drivers in the past. Its Pro 2 controller gives Nintendo its own Switch Pro controller its money in terms of functionality and is cheaper to launch wireless arcade stick is a great way to play fighting games on Switch and PC.
Although only one of the 8BitDon Xbox Media remotes includes a numeric keypad, both have basically all the buttons you want, including playback and navigation controls, as well as a mute button. Most face buttons on the Xbox controller are also present, including A / B / X / Y, view, menu, and the home button, which can wake up a paired console remotely. The buttons are backlit, which helps you use the remote control in a cinema-friendly lighting, and is powered by a pair of AAA batteries.
8BitDon’s new accessory is far from the only media remote control Available for the latest Microsoft consoles and all older media remotes designed for the Xbox One operating system should also be cross-matching. But 8BitDon Media remotes are cheap, stylish and come from a brand that knows something about console peripherals. If you are in the market, they are definitely worth a look.
