The HyperX Xbox Series X controller dock outdoes Microsoft — here’s how | Tom’s Guide

CES always has a lot of exciting new tech, but it’s often a little light on gaming gear, particularly of the console variety. This year, though, we saw at least one gadget that solves a real problem with Microsoft’s hot new system, the Xbox Series X. The HyperX ChargePlay Duo is an extremely straightforward device: a dock that charges two Xbox controllers simultaneously. And yet it may just beat Microsoft at its own game, in terms of both usability and price.

HyperX hasn’t left PC enthusiasts out in the cold, though. During CES 2021, it also announced the HyperX Alloy Origins 60 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. As the name suggests, it’s a mini or “60%” keyboard, which eschews not only the number pad, but also the arrow keys and top row of function keys. It’s a niche item, to be sure, but if you’d rather have space than keys, it seems like a solid bet.
