Microsoft Xbox One Elite Controller

If you don’t know it, the E3 conference is happening this week. Along with the announcement of new games and system updates, I am always interested in the new gear coming out. This year Microsoft has announced the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller. While on the surface, a new Xbox controller does not seem groundbreaking (especially at $149.99), but a little digging shows that it is much more than a simple controller. Designed to not only work with the Xbox One, the new controller will work with a PC running the new Windows 10. Those are nice features, but for hardcore gamers, the additional customizable joysticks and configurable paddles that can be added or removed from the bottom of the controller make it a notch above most controllers. Along with the paddles, the controller comes with the following:

  • Xbox Elite Wireless Controller
  • Carrying case
  • Set of 4 paddles
  • Set of 6 thumbsticks: standard (2), tall (2), and domed (2)
  • Set of 2 D-pads: faceted and standard
  • USB cable
  • AA batteries
  • Quick Setup Guide and Product Manual

The App to configure the controller is available for Windows 10 and the Xbox One. At $149.99 and available in October 2015, the Xbox One Elite Controller can be pre-ordered at the Microsoft website.
