    New controller imminent. The 8BitDo Pro 2

    Due out very soon is a new controller from 8BitDo called the Pro 2.

    https://www.8bitdo.com/pro2/

    It's an evolution of their existing SFC30 PRO controller, but with even more features and a more streamlined design, making it look even more premium and robust. It also adds 2 extra back buttons under the controller too which can be configured to act in any way needed, plus there's much improved software configuration and improved rumble features.

    I'm definitely considering getting one.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Admitting that I like their controllers, I just bought an XBox Series X controller with the improved D-Pad. I bought the Shock Blue one, which looks really neat, and in my opinion still the best controller available.

    The big advantage of Xbox controllers since the 360 days is complete native support in Windows. Most games instantly recognise them and switch to Xbox mode showing correct button mapped prompts etc. I actually still use a white wired 360 controller a lot on PC as really like it. But was considering getting a new Xbox one for PC use.

    I mainly use these 8BitDo controllers more for emulation and RPi. Give that slightly more retro feel.
