Alienware’s gaming controller prototype is what Microsoft should’ve built ages ago

I’ve seen the future of ubiquitous gaming and it probably starts with an Alienware Project Nyx controller. The gaming PC maker gave me a first look at the device, which is admittedly more of a concept than a product, just ahead of CES 2023, where it’s officially unveiled. Simply put, this controller could influence the future of PC and even console gaming for years to come.

To understand why Alienware (part of Dell), plays with gaming peripherals, you need to know a little about Concept Nyx, Alienware’s experimental platform for home gaming. To support this, Dell has been working on hardware and software concepts that let you, for example, transfer PC games from your desktop and laptop to the biggest screen in your home: your TV.

Playing a PC game on your TV isn’t easy. Most gaming PCs aren’t hooked up to the family room TV (unlike most consoles, which are), and it’s a try to get your gaming laptop to work with even the best 4K TVs.
