What’s more, for those that worry about stick drift, PDP will also sell Hall Effect stick modules separately for both the PlayStation and Xbox versions of the Pro BFG controller in early 2024. Hall Effect sticks have become a must-have feature for many gamers in recent years, so it’s great to see PDP will offer the option moving forward.

The Xbox Pro BFG controller costs $179.99 and pre-orders go live in January with the pro-grade gamepad set to release in February, 2024. It’ll provide some much needed competition to the Xbox Elite Series 2 Wireless controller, which can suffer from durability issues.
