In the past, PXN has given us arcade sticks like the PXN-0082 and the PXN-X9. While the 0082 was quite successful as a mini arcade stick, the PXN-X9 was not held in high regard due to being a clone of the Mad Catz TE2. This time, PXN debuts a mixbox-style controller called the PXN-X8 Keyboard Arcade Joystick with keys on the left for directions and buttons on the right for attacks. The buttons have the Vewlix layout. There is a turbo function for automated rapid button presses. The green axis mechanical keypad boasts:

  • 2.0 mm trigger stroke
  • 70 g press strength
  • 50+ million presses

You can get this controller in two artwork options. Besides the black case with colorful artwork complemented by black keys and red buttons, the other option is a white case with white keys and buttons on top of a plain orange background.

The second artwork option is quite minimalistic.
