8BitDo Media Remote For Xbox Series X|S Announced, Up For Preorder Now

Two different styles of 8BitDo media remotes for Xbox will be released in September.


8BitDo is one of the best third-party controller manufacturers around, but its latest product isn't a traditional gamepad. The 8BitDo Media Remote for Xbox is aimed at those who use their Xbox consoles for more than just gaming. If you stream movies and TV shows often, the 8BitDo Media Remote will offer a better solution for controlling your content than the Xbox Wireless Controller. Two models of the 8BitDo Media Remote are releasing on September 15, and they are available to preorder now at Amazon.

The big difference between the white and the black remotes is that the longer black remote also has numeric inputs for switching TV channels. Both remotes are compatible with Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox One.
