Hit Box Downloads

If you've just received your Hit Box, then there's 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's 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.
If for any reason you're having problems with your Hit Box, you can reach us at:

We're looking forward to helping with any problems!
