The Xbox Elite Series 2 wireless controller only released about a month ago. It hasn't really even been around long enough to go on sale, and these controllers are not the sort of things that see a lot of discounts anyway. Right now you have the chance to save $20 on the Xbox Elite Series 2 at Costco. It's down to $159.99 from its regular price of $180, which you'll find it going for at other retailers like Amazon and Microsoft.

You will need a Costco membership, but the Series 2 does not go on sale much. It's a super advanced controller for enthusiast gamers. It has interchangeable thumbsticks and paddles, limitless customization, and a 40-hour battery life, plus more.

You will need to be a Costco member to get this deal. You won't even be able to see the price until you sign in with your membership. Luckily that means you'll be able to get free online shipping if you order it that way.

The Series 2 is one of the most advanced controllers ever made. It is incredibly customizable. The hardware includes new interchangeable thumbsticks and paddle shapes. You can adjust the tension on the thumbsticks to your liking. It also features shorter hair trigger locks and a wrap-around rubberized grip.

Plus you'll find customization you can dip deeper and deeper into through the Xbox Accessories app. It includes incredibly nuanced options like accentuation curve controls that let you get your gaming experience absolutely perfect. It also has a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 40 hours and comes with a unique charging dock. You'll also be able to use Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or the included USB-C cable to play on Xbox One or your Windows 10 PC.

The Series 2 gets 4.5 stars out of 5 and a The Best badge from our Windows Central review. Jez Corden said the controller's biggest weakness is its price, so at least today's deal helps you out with that. The review adds this controller "might be the best controller ever made" with "premium quality, premium features, and premium convenience."
