The Duke Is Coming
We all like a little bit of nostalgia every now and then and us gamers are no different. Those of us of a certain age may remember the huge controller that came with the original Xbox and some of us loved it. Well soon you may be able to get your hands on one designed especially for the Xbox One.
One of the lead designers of the original Xbox, Seamus Blackley, has been working on creating a version of the original controller for the Xbox One. The original controller was called the Duke and it looks like the Duke is set to make a comeback.

Microsoft have now certified the prototype which means the plans have officially gone beyond the drawing board. The designs have now gone to that special place where the molds will be created. But that’s not all. The controller also comes with some improvements. For one there will be a nine foot long breakaway cable and also a new display screen.
Of course at this early stage we have no idea of when this fantastic new controller will be released or how much it will cost but we will be keeping our beady eyes out for any more information to keep you updated.
What do you think, are you excited to get your hands on this updated piece of history or will you be sticking with your Xbox Elite controller?
