There would remain 8BitDo, which has wanted to distance itself a bit from its competitors and, although it has also shown a controller, it has done so with a retro look that is reminiscent of Super Nintendo controls. In fact it will be called SN30 Pro, it will arrive on September 21 and it is already available for reservation on pages like Amazon, where it has an estimated price of $ 44.99. But 8BitDo will also have an economic option and will market its own Mobile Gaming Clips to use the controls for Xbox One and Xbox Series X. And although they will have the same price as those of PowerA, they will come out a little earlier. Specifically, they will do it the same day as the SN30 Pro, on September 21. Project xCloud thus demonstrates the confidence of Microsoft, which wants the service to be well wrapped to offer the best possible experience.
