Microsoft Sidewinder Strategic Commander Overview -The Strangest Controller (dedicated to RTS Games)

The Microsoft Sidewinder Strategic Commander is possibly the Real Time Strategy Controller that killed the Sidewinder Brand. This is a peripheral purpose built for Real Time Strategy games back in 2001 for Windows 98 computers and it was a failure for Microsoft.. BUT is it bad?

Let’s take a quick look at this peculiar gaming device from Microsoft. It has the capability of mapping up to 72 different keyboard combinations to its buttons to help you gain an advantage when playing games.

The Strategic Commander was most likely a failed device for Microsoft and came towards the end of the original Sidewinder hardware lifetime.

I picked up this wonderful device for free from facebook marketplace. I never even knew this thing existed but am happy to now add it to the collection.
