Whether you’re a console enthusiast, a PC master race advocate, or a dedicated mobile gamer, the chances are high that at some point, you’ll find yourself wielding a game controller. In today’s saturated market, these controllers come in a plethora of shapes, sizes, and feature sets. Some are so compact they could hang from your keyring, while others attempt to cram every conceivable feature into a handheld device. A recent design leans heavily towards the latter, boasting a myriad of features that could make professional gamers on any platform salivate. The Turtle Beach Stealth Ultra is already turning heads with its RGB lighting, a favorite among gamers. However, its pièce de résistance is a feature that’s both impressive and borderline extravagant for a device you hold in your hands and rarely glance at during gameplay.
Crafted by Turtle Beach, this game controller is a testament to the evolution of gaming input devices. Gone are the days of simplicity; now, controllers boast more buttons than one could fathom, a response to the increasing complexity of modern games. Some controllers even incorporate touchpads or mouse modes, catering to games or software demanding more precise movements than a joystick can provide. While the Turtle Beach Stealth Ultra skips the latter, it compensates by embedding a 1.5-inch display in the center. This screen serves multiple purposes, showcasing customization options and notifications, including those from social media apps on your connected phone.
Dubbed the “Connected Command Display,” this feature is undeniably a sophisticated enhancement to the game controller. In essence, it allows users to view and adjust controller settings directly on the device, eliminating the need for a separate window on the PC or console screen. Impressively, it can even sync with an iPhone or Android phone to display real-time notifications.
However, the execution of this feature raises a few eyebrows. Navigating the screen requires switching to a specific mode, disrupting the user’s flow. A touch screen interface could have significantly enhanced convenience, and displaying notifications might be excessive, potentially distracting players from the game screen.
Beyond the innovative screen, the Stealth Ultra boasts an array of features catering to gamers’ preferences. From drift-free analog sticks for a seamless gaming experience to a commitment to lag-free wireless connectivity and customizable RGB lighting to match your gaming ambiance, this controller leaves no stone unturned. However, these advanced features come at a cost – a price tag of $199.99 places the Turtle Beach Stealth Ultra firmly in the premium game controller segment. While some of these features may seem extravagant or unnecessary to hyper-focused gamers, they undoubtedly contribute to an impressive gaming accessory.
