The Xbox 360 controller remake by Hyperkin is getting closer to availability, which is good news for millennial gamers who miss the original.

Hyperkin first revealed the Xenon controller back in November, but little concrete information was provided outside some renders and the understanding that this reissue will be a USB-C wired-only retribution for Xbox Series X / S and PC.

Preorders for the Xenon controller will open on May 5, and the device will go on sale on June 6 at the latest, according to Hyperkin.

The new Xbox 360 controller will cost $49.99 in white, black, red, or pink if you feel strongly enough about the original Xbox 360 controller to want to purchase a reissue that does without the wireless connectivity and the iconic green LED-surrounded guidance button.

Xenon is far less expensive than Hyperkin’s Duke, a revival of the enormous controller from the first Xbox that costs $90 when not significantly discounted. And given that the Xbox 360 controller served as the model for the majority of contemporary gamepads, I’d assume it’s a far more functional controller for recent games.

Moreover, Xenon shouldn’t disadvantage the user with awkwardly attached bumper buttons, unlike a Duke. The Xbox 360 generation included every button we use today. Xenon will have all of those buttons along with the View and Share buttons and a 3.5mm headphone connection found on the current standard Xbox controller.

The Xbox controller has been around the market for almost 18 years. The recent updates are worth giving a try.
