Slowly but surely console accessories and gamepads have started working on the normal PC. Because of this Speedlink has made a Xeox gamepad that works on both the Ps3 and on a PC. This is a clear step towards making it better for the consumer so they do not  have to buy seperate gamepads for all gaming consoles and computers. Today we are going to take a look at the Xeox Analog gamepad and see what type of performance we can expect from this unit.

The Xeox comes packed in a nice little plastic cover that protects the unit well. Inside you will find a manual, USB cables, receiver and also the gamepad itself.

Speedlink are known for making inexpensive products, not necessarily “worse” just cheaper overall so this will be intresting to see if they have been able to keep the quality even though this conotroller only cost 35€.

Looking at the receiver we see that it has a removable cap to protect the USB connector and it also has a little switch on the side which controls what type of setup you run it on.

The controller has a matte black color and looks excatly like a Xbox 360 controller, it  feels like it also when it comes to size and buttons but it weighs less than the average 360 controller.

    this is a hands on, not a review.

    you missed this:

    1 – dead zone test on both analogs sticks and triggers
    2 – trigger response and feel, as well as analog sticks
    3 – are buttons light or heavy to press?
