Black Friday 2022 – The Microsoft Xbox Series X/S Carbon Black Wireless Controller “5 stars” at 44.99 € (-20%)

Introduced with the Xbox Series X/S, the new Xbox controller looks just like the Xbox One controller. Behind the adage “why change a formula that works?”, discreet and very welcome improvements that we were able to evaluate…

In the absence of a very marked technological evolution during the transition to the Xbox Series generation, the Xbox controller remains the excellent game controller that we have enjoyed for years on Xbox One and PC. Admittedly quite timid, the developments made by Microsoft further improve comfort and precision, enough to make this new Xbox Series controller a benchmark in this area. However, we remain unsatisfied with the on-board vibration technologies, which would have benefited from catching up with those used by Nintendo and Sony on their respective official controllers.

Strong points

  • Secure and comfortable grip.
  • Accessible and precise controls.
  • Good manufacturing quality.
  • Precise and comfortable directional pad.
  • Reduced latency on Xbox Series X/S.
  • Triple connectivity: radio, Bluetooth and USB-C.

Weak points

  • Battery and cable not included (2 AA batteries only).
  • Noisy directional pad.
  • No real technological evolution (triggers, vibrations…).

NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average of the lowest prices charged by all merchants for the product last month, with security rules to exclude prices from shops whose the VAT policy is not clear (known as “grey” shops, typically in the case of imports from China).


Behind its retro look, the SN30 Pro+ is modern and suitable for games of yesteryear as well as recent titles. Its orders mixing tradition and modernity are as much a quality as a defect. Complete, it is a good choice for those who want to play on Switch as well as on PC or mobiles, including in use retrogaming.
