PowerA has today launched its newest controller, the FUSION Pro 3. Compatible with Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Windows 10/11 PCs, the FUSION Pro 3 is designed to offer a ‘premium build and highly anticipated features’.
Building on the success of the original FUSION Pro and most recently the FUSION Pro 2, this new controller aims to deliver performance enhancing features at a budget friendly price. Noticeable upgrades include the addition of four mappable buttons that replace the detachable Pro Pack to provide a more seamless way for gamers to gain an advantage in nearly any game. The included protective case has been redesigned to provide a more compact footprint that makes it easier to safely take this controller to the next tournament or friend’s house.
FUSION Pro 3 Controller Features
Clearly inspired by the Xbox Elite controller, the FUSION PRO 3 controller has a number of adaptable and swappable features. The full details are below:
- A detachable faceplate with wraparound textured rubberised grips.
- Four integrated buttons you can map.
- Dual rumble motors and impulse triggers.
- 3.5mm stereo jack.
- Three-way trigger locks.
- Swappable thumbsticks – includes two short sticks with concave caps, and two tall sticks with concave and convex options.
- USB-C cable: 10ft. (3m) braided cable.
- Custom Protective Case.
- Volume Dial with One-Touch Mic Mute and LED indicator.
All PowerA products, including this new controller, are backed by a two-year limited warranty.
A Cost-Effective Elite Controller
It seems quite apparent that the target audience for the FUSION Pro 3 controller is that which play games competitively online, but don’t want to splash out for the Xbox Elite controller. Given that even the ‘core’ version of the official controller weighs in at $10 USD more than the FUSION Pro 3 – without any of the swappable parts – it makes a series argument for purchase. The trade-off however, is that the PowerA’s effort is wired.
The FUSION Pro 3 is available now at PowerA.com. The controller is also coming to Amazon for an MSRP of $79.99 USD/£79.99 GBP.
