Asus reveals officially licensed pro controller for Xbox.

There is no shortage of "Pro" style controllers for gamers these days. Asus has decided to throw their hat into the ring with their new Raikiri Pro for the Xbox line of consoles. This new Pro-style controller dubbed the "Raikiri Pro" is officially licensed by Microsoft and sports a 1.3" OLED screen for various functions such as Microphone status, battery life and more. The Raikiri Pro sports "Tri-Connectivity" and it's the first officially licensed xbox controller to do so allowing players to connect to devices via Bluetooth, low-latency 2.4GHz , or USB-C. respectively. This is useful for using the controller on the PC, xbox, smartphone or even a smart TV with Xbox Game Pass. The controller also features a ESS DAC, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and a mute button you'd come to expect for an xbox controller. Of course it sports all features you would expect from a "Pro" controller, including remappable buttons, adjusting joystick sensitivity and dead zones, and different trigger modes, all of which can be customized via Asus' Armoury Crate app on the PC.

There is no pricing or officiall release date yet given by Asus but we will keep you updated and let you know as soon as we hear something. What do you think? Is this a controller you'd be interested in?

The LED screen can be really neat if it ends up being useful. I worry about the look of the textures and the overall feel that it may offer as I see two that are often on their other products. With one being a skin magnet textured side and the other being a slippery metal-like finish, neither sound great, so hopefully, they are just cosmetically like that.

Oh Yeah! :p
 
I'm perfectly fine with my Xbox Elite controller and don't really see how this controller is any better - besides the obvious screen. :)

I don't know, what kind of stuff or information would you like to be displayed on that screen? I'm also worried that the screen will deplete the controller's batteries much faster.

This is very true. I often overlook controller battery life as I always leave mine plugged in. But I can see items like mic controls, steaming/recording status, basically, utility items being a bit nice. Although I will be the first to say that they are not needed and I'd still rather something like a stream deck vs a mini display for these tasks as they are both displays and buttons then.
