Xiaomi launches a new game controller that you can use to play games on your phone and computer
Xiaomi has had a fickle foray into the gaming world. Although they released mobiles for gamers under the POCO and Black Shark brands, it is surprising that in all these years the manufacturer has not introduced devices aimed at PC gamers in the market, until now.
Now the company has just launched the Xiaomi Gamepad Elite Edition in China, which is the first Bluetooth controller with multi-platform support and somatosensory control. Do you want to know more about it? Well, we will tell you all the details right away.
It seems that Xiaomi is ready this year to delve deeper into the video game market. Recently, it introduced Black Shark 5 and POCO F4 GT, two smartphones that every gamer would want to have. And now, Xiaomi has launched the Gamepad Elite Edition, the brand’s first joystick that is also compatible with Android, Windows, and Steam. This means that you can use it to play on your mobile phone, tablet, or computer.
This joystick comes with two wireless networking technologies that ensure a stable and high-quality connection: Bluetooth 5.0 and a 2.4GHz band receiver. Its design is reminiscent of the classic PlayStation 1 controller.
In addition, itcomes with a 6-axis gyroscope that allows it to provide somatosensory control similar to what DualSense provides for the PlayStation 5. And you won’t have to worry about its durability, as the brand ensures that the Xiaomi GamePad Elite Edition buttons withstand up to a million keystrokes without fail.
The Xiaomi Gamepad Elite Edition went on sale in China at a price of 329 yuan, which is about 47 dollars to change approximately. It’s only available in one color (white) and comes with adjustable support for small and mobile tablets.
At the moment, Xiaomi has not revealed when this joystick will reach the rest of the world.
