Remember the gigantic, made-for-monster-hands controller that shipped with the original Xbox in 2001? It's coming back, and it'll work with your Xbox One and Windows 10 PC.
Created by Hyperkin in partnership with Microsoft, "The Duke" looks like an extremely faithful recreation of the colossal controller that gave many a handcramp 16 years ago. To ensure the accuracy of the design, Hyperkin consulted Seamus Blackley, one of the key architects of the original Xbox.
That said, this new Duke does sport some neat extra features -- including a big, circular LED screen where the static Xbox logo used to sit.
When I checked out the controller at Hyperkin's E3 booth, the screen played a video of the nostalgic bootup animation that played every time your fired up your old Xbox. No word yet on what other kinds of content you'll be able to view on it. Other modernized features include left and right bumpers and a 9-foot detachable cable.
