The Original Xbox’s Oversized "Duke" Controller Returns This March

During an interview with CNET, Seamus Blackley revealed that the original "ridiculously large" Xbox controller will go on sale this March for $70. The revival is manufactured by Hyperkin and aims to be an authentic recreation that mirrors the size, shape, materials, and feel of the Duke.

Blackley takes the blame for the original Duke being the size it was. "I'd taken my eye off the ball when it came to the controller ... and the circuit board was given out to a vendor who was a friend of somebody or a brother of somebody. So the circuit board they came up with was the size of a dinner plate," he half-jokes.
