Will the Xbox Elite Controller Series 2 work on the Xbox Series X?
Microsoft has confirmed multiple times that all Xbox One accessories will be compatible with Microsoft's next console, the Xbox Series X (formerly known as Project Scarlett). Not only will accessories be compatible, but all of your games and apps, too, owing to a similar OS architecture. When we spoke to Microsoft at a previous event, here's what Partner Director of Program Management at Xbox, Jason Ronald, had to say on the topic.
Beyond compatibility with Xbox One and next-gen Xbox Series X, the Xbox Elite Controller S2 is also compatible with Android and iOS devices, as well as Windows PCs via both USB and Bluetooth. You can also connect it wirelessly to a Windows PC using an inexpensive USB dongle, if you don't fancy relying on Bluetooth wirelessness.
The Xbox Series X is looking to be ready by the holiday season in 2020, but pricing hasn't been revealed yet. We'll be sure to keep you updated when we find out.
Likely the best controller ever made.
With revised parts, construction, and upgraded features, the Xbox Elite Controller 2 is a serious product you must consider (if you can stomach the hefty price tag, that is.)
