The Nacon MG-X PRO is an Android phone controller for Game Pass subscribers

One of the low-key features of a Games Pass Ultimate subscription is the ability to play titles on Android mobile devices over an internet connection – and now Nacon has released the MG-X PRO controller specifically for this use case.

Attaching to a ‘wide range’ of contemporary Android smartphones – think Samsung, Sony, OnePlus and Google Pixel – it provides a Nintendo Switch-like handheld experience, except with Xbox inputs.

It features an up-to 20-hour battery life, recharged via USB-C, and synchs to your phone via Bluetooth. All the traditional Xbox controller inputs you expect are included, so that means asymmetrical joysticks, bumpers, triggers and action buttons.

The MG-X PRO is compatible with every Android device that is running all Android 6 or later (Android 12 was released in October 2021, for reference) and up to 6.7 inches in display size.

The monthly subscription service Games Pass Ultimate, but not the entry-level Games Pass tiers, offers access to Xbox Cloud Gaming, a library of ‘cloud enabled’ games that can be played on mobile devices. In comparison to the full Games Pass library, a reduced section of titles is playable via the cloud connection.

Some titles on the service have touch-controls added, but the majority require you to connect a controller to your smartphone. Racing titles on the service that would work in this instance include Forza Horizon 4, DIRT 5 and art of rally.

This new phone peripheral is available to order now for £89.99/€99.90/$79.90, let us know in the comments below if you’ve been playing Game Pass on the go.
