Microsoft has now revealed the RRP for the controller as well as a launch window of October for eager gamers to get their hands on one. Additionally, a new page on Xbox.com reveals some of the finer points.
In the box you get more than just the controller:
- 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 Elite Controller also has a companion app for Xbox One and Windows 10 to help you customize your own experience, sort out button mapping and more.
"Customize your experience even further with an easy-to-use app*. Adjust trigger min/max values, thumbstick sensitivities, button assignments, and more, so the controls are exactly the way you want them. Assign any of 14 inputs to the ABXY buttons, paddles, D-pad, triggers, and thumbstick clicks.
Create as many controller profiles as you like in the app and have tailored settings for any game. Load two profiles on the controller and instantly change between them with the built-in Profile Switch. The possibilities are virtually limitless."
