Game On The Go With 8BitDo’s Project xCloud Xbox Streaming Controller

8BitDo aren’t strangers to the aftermarket video game accessory space, creating some of the genre’s most sought-after controllers, mice, and speakers. The brand has become widely acclaimed for its adherence to retro principles, but for its latest project, the SN30 Gamepad, the outfit has deviated from the path and taken a step into modernity.

The SN30 is 8BitDo’s most contemporary model to date. Built in collaboration with Microsoft and utilized primarily for the brand’s “Project xCloud” streaming service, this compact controller boasts a design that’s been pulled straight from the Xbox test labs. It features a symmetrical, aesthetically-pleasing design, an impressive battery life of around 18 hours, and an included clip to secure any device — with a width as wide as 86mm — for the perfect on-the-go gaming experience. If you’re a fan of customized button mapping, don’t fret — 8BitDo has also included its Ultimate Software suite, which will allow you to swap between different gaming profiles and controller setups at the touch of a button. If you’re on the Android operating system, and you’re looking for a way to enjoy your favorite games when you’re out and about, you’ll be able to pre-order the SN30 through the company’s website for $45.
