Microsoft Xbox Elite Wireless Controller is one customisable gamepad every gamer wants
A professional gamer needs a professional gaming controller, and there should be no compromise in that fact. Microsoft has realized this fact and therefore released a gaming controller which caters to the needs of the most demanding gamers. This folks is the Microsoft Xbox Elite Wireless Controller at Microsoft E3 2015 which provides a pro-level customization for an elite gamer. That is why the name also suggests “Elite” in it. One can say that the controller is a regular Xbox One gamepad transformed into one having new features.
The gaming controller is modular in many ways since there are 6 swappable stainless steel analog sticks and 2 D-pads which come handy for different genres of games. A welcome change to the controller is the addition of four interchangeable paddles that can be taken out to function as ABXY buttons of the controller so that you can place your thumb on the analog stick and not worry about moving it. There is also a Hair Trigger lock which toggles between full-range trigger motion and locking the trigger movement.
As expected, the Microsoft Xbox Elite Wireless Controller is going to be compatible with Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs. To configure the settings of individual buttons and the sensitivity level, one has to download the configurator app and you are all ready for professional level gaming with the right tool in your hand.
The high-end gaming controller is all set to hit the retail stores in October and it doesn’t come as a surprise that it carries a hefty price tag of $149.99.
