Gaming these days is extremely popular and having the best console is great but you also need a reliable and professional controller. We were delighted when Nacon sent us Pro Compact Controller to review, here’s what Mandy from our team thought.

Mandy said: “Gaming is one of the most popular things to do and it is only going to get more popular. So when Nacon sent us over their new Pro Compact Controller which is compatible with Xbox X/S consoles and PC, I was keen to give it a try on the Xbox. First up it is light to hold and has a textured back surface which made it comfortable to hold and allowed a good grip on the controller.

To set up the Nacon Pro Compact Controller was very easy, I simply plugged it into one of the USB ports on my Xbox console and waited for the white LED to appear which meant my controller was ready for use. It had everything needed including remapping features which meant I could remap every button to the way I wanted the controller to be set.

There are also other features I would expect to find on a gaming controller including adjustable trigger sensitivity, analogue sticks and one of the best features is the 3.5mm audio port for headphones which unlocks the Dolby Atmos app which is ideal for the ultimate gameplay. This controller is smaller than the original Xbox controllers which is great if you have smaller hands or if you want a better grip.

Overall I was impressed with how easy it was to set up the Nacon Pro Compact Controller, the design was light and had a good grip and I really liked all of the features, in particular the headphone option and I would use this for gaming and would make the perfect gift for any gamer.”
