SteelSeries packaging is sleek and good quality, a true representation of what to expect inside. The orange colour is used well to accent the product. The product is clearly described to allow the consumer to understand what the product is for, 'Console style wireless controller for Windows and Android'.
At the back there is some extra information pointing out the features including its long battery life, Bluetooth connectivity, though overall the information about the full specifications and details seem missing.
Included with the Stratus XL controller is a multilingual quick start guide with some SteelSeries stickers, and 2x AA batteries.
The Stratus XL controller looks like a merger of the XBone and PS4 controllers, taking the ergonomic shape of the XBone and slapping an 8 way D-Pad in the position where there would normally be an analogue stick.
