Revolutionary for some, just brilliantly versatile for most – this controller has a wealth of features and is a top Xbox Series X and PC controller for new-gen gaming.
The Thrustmaster eSwap X Pro is the next venture from the hardware stalwarts into the field of changeable – literally – gamepad controllers. Coinciding with the new-gen Xbox Series X|S console family, the eSwap X Pro has also had some generational changes, evolving from the eSwap controller built for PS4 and PC a couple of years ago. And, almost without exception, the eSwap X Pro positively builds on its brethren in every way.
Also, to add some personal flavour to this: I have weird, different hands. This has long meant that I’ve been unable to use asymmetrical controllers, and thus, unable to play on or own Xbox consoles. While a PC and DualShock controller can go some way to filling that gap in recent years, I’m a console player mainly and just prefer that experience. Thus, when a controller like this comes about that I can personalise into a form that plays nicely with my different hands (and opens up the world of Xbox and its exclusive games to me), then I have to take notice. It might just prove revolutionary for me.
