Microsoft's new Xbox One Elite controller can now be pre-ordered for $150

Microsoft announced its awesome-looking new controller for the Xbox One during the E3 presentation yesterday.

Do note that Amazon's release date appears to be slightly off, especially given that Microsoft has already shared availability details for the controller, which is expected to hit stores in October. That said, you'll still need to hunt for that $150.

To recap, here's what you'll get inside the box:

  • 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

Be sure to check the Microsoft website for more details on the new Xbox One Elite controller.
