Hit Box Downloads


 

If you have just received your Hit Box, then there is no need to update your controller!  Out of the box it will be updated with the latest everything.  Once in a while your controller may need to be updated, however, and that is why we have this firmware page.  The tell-tale sign is the 8-minute disconnect problem.  This is a rare occurrence, but we can help if it ever happens.
