When you’re looking for a competitive edge on your opponents, the controller is a good place to start. That’s why Microsoft has teamed up with professional gamers to develop the Xbox One Elite Controller.
Described as “an elite controller for the elite gamer,” this thing was built specifically for competitive gamers. The tech giant has ditched the traditional plastic button pads in favor of premium materials like stainless steel, but it’s the customization abilities that really set this device apart. There four new buttons found on the backside, letting gamers remap them to any configuration they’d like, along with the option dial in trigger sensitivity. All of the mappings will be handled through a standalone app, letting you save your controller preferences in the cloud. You can also swap out physical components including the joystick, buttons and d-pad to further customize your controller. The Xbox One Elite wireless controller will be hitting retail shelves this October with a price of $149. Watch the video below. [Purchase]
