8BitDo Pro 2 review: The best ‘Pro’ controller for $50

The Pro 2 is the sequel to 8BitDo’s SN30 Pro+—a full-sized controller designed with modern features and wrapped in classic gaming aesthetics. At first glance the new controller looks almost exactly like the old one, but it packs some welcome upgrades while keeping the cost at a very reasonable $50. These features make the Pro 2 worthy of the ‘Pro’ name and makes it an easy recommendation for any gamer looking for a powerful and versatile gaming option. Adam Patrick Murray/IDG
