RIG Pro Compact Controller is something we’re looking to review as soon as possible, and is the world’s first Dolby Atmos Xbox controller – and officially licensed for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One – which is currently only out in North America, but no doubt will hear to our shores and others before too long.
This press release contains all the information…
The RIG PRO Compact is the world’s first controller to include Dolby Atmos® for Headphones. Dolby Atmos places game audio all around the player, allowing them to react faster and more accurately as they can detect the direction of their threats.
In addition to Dolby Atmos, the PRO Compact offers players an optimized form factor and unparalleled levels of customization. Via the dedicated Pro Compact App, gamers can remap buttons, adjust trigger sensitivity, and manipulate dead zones customizing their controller to suit their play style.
RIG VP of Global Sales & Marketing, Peter Petrides said: “We are very excited to launch a product suited to gamers who prefer and play better using a controller with a smaller form factor. This coupled with the unparalleled levels of customization and Dolby Atmos for headphones makes the PRO Compact a powerful tool for any competitive gamer.”
PRO Compact owners can enjoy Dolby Atmos for Headphones by downloading the Dolby Access app from the Windows Store onto their Xbox console or Windows 10 PC. Then they simply plug in the controller via USB and connect a headset to experience immersive audio while gaming.
It’s currently available in the US at Best Buy and online at GameStop, Walmart and Target for $49.99 (USD) and exclusively at Walmart stores in Canada for $79.96 (CAN), Black and White versions of the controller are available.
