Revealed to coincide with CES 2024, Hyperkin announced that it's gearing up to release the DuchesS, which is a revamped version of the Xbox's S model controller. Compared to The Duke, the S model was much smaller and featured a design that Microsoft would later go on to revise with the Xbox 360 and Xbox One. With the DuchesS, Hyperkin is also planning to add new features that will include Hall Effect thumbsticks and triggers.
You can get an initial look at this new version of the Xbox S controller here:
For now, there aren't many details on the DuchesS that Hyperkin has offered up. Not only is the design of the controller not official just yet (although black and white variants are in the works), but further specifics associated with its price and release date haven't been provided yet either. In all likelihood, the controller should end up working with modern Xbox platforms that will include Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
