PDP (formally Pelican) has been producing some of the best third-party consoles and PC peripherals for years now. Most of their releases are officially licensed through the console manufacturers so the quality is always top-notch. The latest creation to come out of the PDP labs is their new REALMz controllers. Each controller features a multilayered design that recreates a setting from one of your favorite video game worlds.
I had a chance to see these controllers in person during PAX West 2023 and they were really something special. The controllers are themed after the worlds of Sonic, Pikman, and Transformers and there are more to come in the future. There are both wired and wireless options here along with themed headsets as well. The PDP REALMz collection is a must-have for any collector or anyone who wants to scratch a nostalgic itch.
When it comes to the functionality of the controllers, as I stated before, there are wired and wireless versions of the controllers. You can find all of the same features you are used to on your standard Xbox and Switch controllers along with some cool additions. On the back, there are additional programmable buttons to customize your gaming experience.
You get a ton of value in these controllers and the prices still range from 39.99 to 59.99 USD. You can check out more of the products HERE.
