On March 2, 2009 the Original Xbox console was discontinued in North America. Ever since than fans of the Xbox have always been reminiscence when it comes to the Original Xbox’s Duke controller. Well fans of the Duke can rejoice as the Duke will return  and this time work on the Xbox One.

The controller will be 70 dollars US when it releases in March this year. Microsoft was able to get Seamus Blackley blessing to bring his original design for the controller to the current Xbox One. The controller was always known for being a bigger sized controller that either gamers loved or hated.

The big jewel button has been modified and now lights up and has an animation when ever the gamer touches the screen. The controller also had bumpers added above the trigger so XInput games can work with the controller on the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
