A better lifespan thanks to “new generation” sticks and some additional features.
A year ago almost to the day, Thrustmaster announced the release of its most ambitious gamepad. The eSwap Pro Controller justified a higher price than usual by a system of modules intended to increase the customization options. The "v2" goes even further.
Thrustmaster announces the release of the big sister today, l’eSwap X Pro Controller. Without surprise, this gamepad will take all the qualities of the previous one and, in particular, keep the possibility of modifying the modules at any time. A solution that we particularly appreciated when testing the first model.
The manufacturer indicates that new modules, new accessories will be available to further expand the options. It is thus question of the Green Color Pack and Blue Color Pack : in addition to offering specific colors, these packs will incorporate different grips and additional caps for the mini-sticks.
Thrustmaster also evokes the concomitant release of the eSwap X S5 NXG mini-stick module which can replace a mini-stick tired by too many requests and of the eSwap X D4XB D-Pad module to replace this time the directional cross. Finally, a rigid bag is provided to accompany the gamepad.
If the accessories are interesting, Fortunately, Thrustmaster also looked at the design of its product and, in particular, on its longevity. He specifies that the directional cross and the buttons are now able to register more than 5 million activations before risking any failure.
On the side of mini-sticks, there is still talk of more 2 million activations before problems can arise. For these last ones, the manufacturer also evokes more precision with an improvement of the return to the center quantified at +66%. We do not see how Thrustmaster calculates this… to see at the time of the test.
Thrustmaster talks about trigger improvements with the ability to block races midway through. The objective is of course to activate these controls more quickly, as some competitors can already do.. Finally, note that the four rear buttons can be reassigned.
The manufacturer talks about this constantly evolving software with, especially, the possibility of modifying the curve of the dead zone. A useful feature in certain styles of play. Thrusmaster says pre-orders are starting now in North America while Europe will wait for the 17 November.
The actual exit is scheduled for 4 December across the Atlantic and six days later on the Old Continent. The eSwap X Pro Controller will then be compatible with PC as well as Xbox One, One X et Series X | S. The price of the pad will be € 169.99 with Color packs at € 49.99 and modules at € 19.99, just like the satchel.
