Watch how the Xbox One Elite Controller can be customized with Xbox Accessories App

The upcoming Xbox One Elite Controller has been designed to give hardcore gamers a ton of customization features A newly posted video shows how this will be accomplished through the use of the Xbox Accessories App, which will be available for both the Xbox One and Windows 10 platforms.

The video shows that owners of the Xbox One Elite Controller will be able to use the app to change any of the button, trigger, and thumbstick assignments to any kind of setup they want. Two of those special game controller settings can be stored and used at one time in the controller, so you can quickly switch between them,

Beyond just changing the buttons, the app will also allow owners of the Elite Controller to actually change the sensitivity of the thumbsticks, either through pre-loaded configurations or by allowing the creation of new settings. The same kind of changes can also be applied to the controller's triggers via the app. The amount of rumble in the controller can also be adjusted and even the amount of light created by the central Xbox controller button can be altered via the app. The Xbox One Elite Controller is scheduled to start shipping on October 27.

  • Sexy
  • Sure is. Nice to see they got rid of the transparent plastic around the guide button
  • That sounds nice :D still not sure if it is worth $150, but then you can't have everything :)
  • Can't wait!
  • If the light is changeable, then couldn't developers take advantage of that? Flash it to show mitifications, etc.
  • This is some seriously good bit of kit. Its great to see Xbox working to support the hardcore gamers after the XB1's release seemed to feature too much on the "home entertainment" offerings of the device. In Phil we trust.
  • I got to say that Xbox One is really improving! I am more Playstation gamer but I see MSFT is really improving and one seems to be better in many aspects compared to Ps4. But after all these are just consoles, everybody use what you prefer. :)
  • The dpad on my controller started randomly getting stuck in the forward motion a few weeks ago. Perfect excuse :) .
  • You'll also be able to remap the buttons and triggers for the regular controller with this app.
  • I absolutely cannot wait for this, but I guess I have to. My wallet is gonna be hurting so bad this holiday, it's not even funny
  • Microsoft is going to have me eating ramen noodles for months.
  • I had an email from amazon saying the delivery date is the 23rd, not the 27th as, staged in this article. Maybe amazon is wrong though...
  • Nah...i can still beat most in halo without a special ed controller. Good luck to y'all's $150 investment though.
  • Cant wait. Best controller ever just got better.
