Review: RIG 500 Pro HX Gen 2 Headset for Xbox

Fantastic audio quality at an affordable price.

I was recently given the opportunity to review some new hardware from RIG (they are owned by NACON now). You already saw what I thought about the RIG Pro Compact Wired Controller. It was a solid device with a lot working in its favor. Now, we are looking at the second generation of their 500 Pro headset. Specifically, this review is about the 500 Pro HX, a headset designed for use with the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows 10....
 

Review: RIG Pro Compact Wired Controller with Dolby Atmos

Small form factor. Big buttons. Bigger audio.

The new Pro Compact Wired Controller with Dolby Atmos from RIG Gaming (now owned by NACON), is a great controller packed with a lot of features at a great price. There, that is the full review. Thank you all for stopping by to read this and we will see you in the next one!

In all seriousness though, the Pro Compact really is a great controller. I have been using it for the past couple of weeks now in a variety of games on my...

The latest beta update for the Steam client has some interesting surprises tucked away within the code. The new client update has several strings that reference things like a "Neptune" controller alongside something else called "SteamPal."

  • Battlefield Reveal on June 9

    Battlefield Reveal on June 9

    I bet there will be explosions.

    The official Battlefield Twitter announced earlier today that the big Battlefield reveal will take place on June 9 at 7AM (PT). Though according to Battlefield.com, that 7AM time is just when the countdown to the reveal will begin. When is the actual reveal time? Man, I don't know. Why they didn't just give us the time that the actual reveal will take place is beyond me.

    Will it be the same as the leaked trailer? Doubtful. Will it be a new...

    Last night, AMD announced its plans to release FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) starting on June 22. This new technology will act as a competitor to Nvidia's DLSS technology.

This means that the games will no longer be available for sale, their in-game stores closed, and their online services will be shuttered.

    Microsoft Flight Simulator Install Size Cut in Half in New Update

    That's some impressive optimization there.

    Microsoft flight Simulator is a gigantic game. After all, it's a flight simulator that lets you fly literally anywhere on planet Earth. The minimum storage requirement for the game is a whopping 150GB but the installed size is often much higher than that, upwards of 170+GB in size. This probably annoys a lot of people regardless of whether of not they have monthly download caps from their ISP.
