When you test a graphics adapter with Xen VGA passthru please write about your experiences to xen-users or xen-devel mailinglists so we can add the info about tested configurations here! But I’m still note sure it’s worth that hefty a price premium over the standard Xbox One controller, which is why the Elite Series 2 isn’t down as our absolute, must-have, best PC gamepad in this test. We still prefer the Xbox pad’s offset layout, and those DS4 trigger buttons are horrible, but the actual analogue sticks themselves are hands down the best around. Right mouse buttons poised to trigger with less force. The buttons satisfying. It’s also got a whopping 40-hour battery life via Bluetooth too. Sure, it’s losing some of the finesse of the other, more expensive pads, and is more aping the original Xbox 360 controller than the modern Xbox One version, but it’s got a decent battery life and the wireless connection is solid.

It’s an evolution over the previous version rather than a revolution, but it’s got everything we loved about the original Elite, plus everything the competition has added to their high-end pads to try and compete. A small yet powerful fan can also be added for additional cooling benefits. It can’t. It’s added in some extra microswitch buttons to the Wolverine, some adjustable hair-triggers, dropped in a pair of pseudo paddle switches, perfect for FPS games, on the underside of the pad and kept it otherwise very clean. If you like a clean desktop, choose wireless ones. The best controller for PC is the Microsoft Xbox Wireless. The textured grip on the rear has been extended to cover the triggers for extra grip and precision, and there’s now a hybrid domed D-pad which we’ve previously only seen on the high-end Xbox Elite controller. The best hybrid PC controller is the Nacon Revolution Unlimited. This content has been created with the help of GSA Content Generator DEMO.
Read the PCGamesN Nacon Revolution Unlimited review for our full verdict and score. But the likes of Nacon and Razer are all making decent alternatives if you’re looking for a flashier design or just want a host of different buttons at your disposal. If you’re looking for RGB, though, the Wolverine is where it’s at. The best RGB PC controller is the Razer Wolverine Tournament Edition Chroma. The Xbox Wireless Controller is Microsoft’s latest attempt to perfect the default gamepad that ships with the Xbox Series X and Series S. While it might not look all that different from its predecessors, aside from dropping the console-specific branding from its name, there’s been plenty of changes four iterations on from the original Xbox One edition that make this the go-to gamepad on gaming PCs. The Cult of Razer has obviously taken one look at the Xbox One Elite controller and said ‘We can do better than that’. Besides, if you’re using your controller for competitive play, this is the one you’ll want to consider given its customisability.
The Nintendo Switch Pro has been made specifically for the diminutive console, but has been given its own Steam profile and can be connected to your gaming PC with either a wireless Bluetooth connection or, if you want to get configured in Steam, via a USB-C cable. It’s also an absolute bargain, even if the triggers maybe don’t feel quite as accomplished as you might want them to be. If you’re a dedicated racer, then a steering wheel with good force-feedback can shave valuable seconds off your in-game lap times, and may even save your life… The OMEN Gaming Hub even cuts out the need to hop between different gaming clients, compiling your library from Steam, Epic Games Store, Ubisoft Connect, and other storefronts so you can launch them from a centralised app. To enjoy games; you need a large display screen. However, such display panels are an open platform capable making it possible to incorporate a large number of third-party hardware and software for increased flexibility. For our money, the offset design gives you the best balance between control and easy access to the buttons, making the Xbox controller the best PC game controller you can buy.
