SteelSeries Stratus+ Controller Revealed
Peter Donnell / 11 months ago
SteelSeries is one of the biggest names out there, offering some of the best gaming peripherals on the market today. I’ve certainly owned and used a fair few of their products over the years, that’s for sure! I actually use their Stratus controller from time to time, it’s been a great spare controller for the arcade machine, and I use it on my tablet for play on Xbox Live Cloud. However, there’s now a new version available, the Stratus+ Wireless!
The Stratus+ is as well equipped as you would expect any modern high-end controller to be. However, while you can use it on PC easily enough, it’s tuned to work with Android and Chromebook too.
