The Victrix Gambit is PDP’s first entry into the world of gamepads, providing a competitive option for those looking for paddles and tall sticks.
Just under a year into the lifespan of the Xbox Series X, PDP has released an impressive alternative to Microsoft’s Elite Controller. Known for their top-of-the-line Victrix fight sticks, the Victrix Gambit offers everything players expect when upgrading from a standard controller alongside technology that reportedly responds faster than any pad available for the system.
The core feature of the Gambit controller is right in the name. The Dual Core technology lets the controller process quick input and headset audio simultaneously. To highlight that fact, Victrix bundles a Dolby Atmos subscription with every Gambit, letting players take full advantage of their headset of choice as long as it’s connected to their new gamepad. The Gambit will also be connected to each player’s Xbox, as it’s a wired controller by design, with a breakaway USB that recalls the original Xbox dongle setup. While it’s not as convenient as wireless, the breakaway wire is a great safety feature that also allows for seamless switching between console and PC play.
