Buy a Hyperkin Duke or keep my X360 controller?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've been using a standard Xbox 360 on my PC for quite a while, 3 years or so, and sometimes i do wish it was a bit larger, when i play for an extended period of time my hands get really tired, i also tried borrowing an Xbox One controller and a Gamesir G4S (both have the same shape) but those feel even smaller.

One of these days i came across the Hyperkin Duke which is clearly based on the original Xbox duke controller and i've been considering buying one since.

What do you guys think of it? Is it a good option for a guy with larger hands or should i just keep my classic X360 controller?

Just use a 360 controller.

I love the OG xbox, but the Duke is excessive.

I use a 360 controller no problem and my hands are 19.5 x 10 cm

I love your Kiryu profile pic, it just so happens i'm playing Yakuza Kiwami 2 atm.

My hands are 19 x 11cm, so pretty much the same, the face buttons are fine but the triggers feel bit too close to my palms so i have to bend my fingers somewhat to activate them properly.

And my controller is wireless, so the battery box is always on the way of the rest of my fingers.

Good to see a Yakuza fan in the wild.

If the battery box is a problem, I would recommend an xbox one controller. Not to mention the triggers  are way bigger

Yeah, i tried an original one and a Gamesir clone and both just don't feel right for me, the triggers are even harder to manage...

Also it's wired with no wireless. 

That's what sorta holding me up from getting one.

But you see, its always been a struggle for me to get a wireless controller working on my computer, so far the only one suitable for long term use was the aforementioned X360 controller, which at this point is getting too old (the analog sticks are feeling pretty loose and the body of the controller has become slippery).

I sit about 3m away from the computer, even though i have a decent bluetooth module on my mobo (ASRock X370 Professional) it still doesn't seem strong enough to keep a steady connection with my bluetooth controllers, be it the Dualshock 4 or an Xbox One controller, which is kinda weird since both work correctly on their original platforms.

This constant interference seems to originate from waves out of a meteorological dish antenna that just a few years ago was installed right across the street from my house.

I also have this GameSir G4S that i had bought to use with my cellphone and PS3, it works better than those other two but also casually has a few signal drops, which can be quickly remedied by using an usb extender lead to bring its receiver more in line with the controller itself, which is also quickly countered by the fact that the controller itself has a pretty poor battery life and needs constant charging.
