The Elite controller makes a comeback for Microsoft with the White Xbox One X

There are gamers and then there are people who really live the entire gaming experience. Beating your friend at Call of Duty may be good but having extra control over the littlest of things such as sprint speed or fire rate or even have specific buttons for these. Gamers need this extra mile and a half and there have been gamer-savvy controllers in the past but those only for the PC. Microsoft, back in 2016 came up with this luxury for the console gamers on the Xbox One too with the Xbox One Elite controller.

The Controller came with many extra features such as weights to increase it accordingly and extra buttons. The entire material was more premium as well. Xbox has been making many special edition controllers for the Xbox like those from Minecraft and other military-themed ones. This time, they release a new colour for the Elite controller as well. The white Elite controller, as beautiful and graceful it seems, features the same convenience and extra control that the older one offered. The original controller went on sale for $149.99 and this would be no different. It is also set to bundle with the white Xbox One X that will come out with Fallout 76. The entire package would run buyers $499.99.

Although the price seems pretty steep, the features, flexibility, control and level of gaming you manage to achieve, the professional “swagger” that no other controller may be able to offer.
