We reviewed the superb 8BitDo 2.4G Ultimate Controller a while back and found it to be one of the best options on the market if you're looking for a low-latency pad for your gaming systems (which includes Switch, although 8BitDo doesn't do a good job of advertising that fact).
The company has now announced that it has made this pad even better by including drift-free Hall Effect sticks – and it has also released a new colour option, purple. As Prince fans, this is excellent news for us.
- Compatible with PC, Android, Steam Deck & Apple (Officially supported by Apple)
- Multifunctional Charging Dock
- Ultimate Software on PC
- Mode switch button (X-input, D-input), 2 Pro back paddle buttons & Custom Profile Switch button, 3 profiles to switch on the fly
- 2.4G adapter, rumble vibration, USB-C, 15 hours rechargeable battery
The addition of Hall Effect sticks makes an already amazing pad even better – and well worth a look if you're after a solid, reliable controller which works across multiple formats.
