Xbox gamers everywhere will be more than pleased at the prospect of getting an elite controller for their consoles, that also has an OLED display on it.
That is an absolute win for Xbox users, considering Sony, or any other associated company, has yet to design a dual-sense controller with the same features.
Know that, during its CES 2023 event, the Asus company announced a new Xbox controller that is called the Raikiri Pro.
Asus has yet to reveal the controller’s price. We only know that it is expected to launch within the second quarter of 2023.
Asus Rakiri Pro, the first Xbox controller with an OLED display
This futuristic-looking device features a built-in 1.3-inch OLED display above the Xbox button which can be used to display text or animated wallpapers.
Much like Hyperkin’s homage to the Duke controller, you can also use it to swap profiles, or check battery, microphone, and Bluetooth pairing status.
Console gamers know just how competitive this market is, and how important a quality controller is, especially for those extended gaming sessions.
Also, looking at its sleek design and ultra-acute responsiveness, streamers will probably be the first ones to get their hands on it.
Furthermore, the Asus Xbox Raikiri Pro has two small buttons on the top of the controller which allow you to quickly switch between profiles anytime.
Also, you got trigger locks, four programmable rear buttons, and a circular D-pad. We can even use the Armoury Crate PC app to remap buttons and adjust joystick sensitivity, trigger modes, and dead zones.
Another very desirable feature that is incorporated into the Rakiri Pro is the tri-mode connectivity, enabling it to connect via USB-C, low-latency 2.4GHz RF mode and Bluetooth.
That being said, keep in mind that Asus mentioned that the controller can only be used on the Xbox Series X and S consoles through wired USB-C.
Other notable features of the Raikiri Pro include a built-in ESS DAC audio, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and a mute button.
