Microsoft announces the Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller

The Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller enjoys a ton of improvements over the original, and adds various new features to give gamers more control over their play.

  • The d-pad and joysticks are customizable. You can swap from concave to convex joysticks for example, in addition to selecting different d-pad layouts.
  • The new controller features new paddle buttons that are mounted beneath the controller.
  • A new "hair-trigger dial" can be adjusted, giving you control over how much you can press before the system recognises it as an action.
  • The new controller will ship with an app that allows you to fully customize the buttons, supporting over 250 new button combinations.

The price and availability has yet to be announced, but stay tuned for more info.
