We think Nest Hub displays are excellent. They’re perfect for controlling your smart home devices, finding recipes, and displaying your photos.

Looking at the primary controllers for the three major consoles today, you might think that there’s not a lot else to be done to perfect a controller. And, you’d be right! The current dual-stick design has served us well for nigh on to two decades. But fighting game fans long for a simpler time.
