Thrustmaster has announced a new addition to their range of gamepad controllers this week, with the launch of the new precision Thrustmaster GP XID PRO gamepad, specifically designed to offer users “a totally plug-and-play gamepad that lets them start playing games right away” explains Thrustmaster. The GP XID PRO Features the XInput (XID) standard enabling it to be plugged into your desired game system without the need to install any additional software or firmware.
The keys to cutting-edge performance, the GP XID PRO’s fully-progressive mini-sticks provide high-resolution, 16-bit responsiveness – for precision two times greater than that of other gamepads on the market, according to laboratory tests carried out in first-person shooter (FPS) games
In addition to the advantages made possible by the built-in XInput standard, the GP XID PRO provides optimized ergonomics – inspired by the design of the Xbox One gamepad controller – ensuring ideal handling, with comfortable access to the mini-sticks and triggers. The GP XID PRO features 12 digital action buttons in total, all of which are perfectly positioned for easy access, plus one Windows Live button. The icing on the cake is the premium-quality braided cable, combining sturdiness, durability and flexibility.
The GP XID PRO’s mini-sticks are located so as to be directly accessible by gamers’ thumbs – and are rubber-textured, making them extremely comfortable to use. The GP XID PRO also features a cross-shaped D-pad for enhanced precision in all eight directions, along with two long, curved progressive triggers. The triggers allow for improved dosing and proportioning, and better control of different actions in games.
The Thrustmaster Precision GP XID PRO Gamepad is now available to purchase priced at €25.
