The Duke, Xbox's original controller is returning to stretch your hands once more

Expect it to hit stores by the end of the year.

Good news for Earth’s giant population as the original Xbox’s Duke controller will be returning to stores soon.

Microsoft have approved the final checks and we expect to see the ol’ Duke back in stores before the end of the year. The controller will be fitted for use on both Xbox One and Windows 10.

The monstrous device has earned a degree of beloved notoriety in the years since the first Xbox, settling into a place of historical/nostalgic value to most gamers. But it’s also just a decent controller for the large-handed among us, who will no-doubt be clamouring to get one in their mighty mitts.
