Microsoft has unleashed the brand new Xbox Elite Wireless Controller. Arriving this October with an arsenal of add-ons and customisation features it’s designed to enhance and personalise the gaming experience on Xbox One and Windows PC like nothing else available. And as you’d imagine from claims like that, it comes at a cost.
Microsoft’s official description of the new controller boasts a somewhat spiritual experience when it promises to “unlock your full potential” and it can be adapted to your style of play with a selection of switchable thumb-sticks, triggers and personalizable buttons.
The accessories include a set of 4 paddles which can be affixed under the controller at the side of the grips to use as triggers, a set of 6 thumb-sticks – 2 standard, 2 tall and 2 domed, as well as 2 sets of D-pads – standard and faceted. All parts are interchangeable and offer the comfort and strategic solutions for any number of gaming tasks across a multitude of gaming genres – from precision targeting in a first person shooter to mastering bends while in a high speed chase and more.

The package is complete with USB cable, batteries and a sturdy carrying case, which seats all the individual pieces. Because you’re going to want to keep this premium pad protected when not in use and never lose the important bits.
