It’s Microsoft’s turn to unveil what it has to show in E3 2015, and one of the key announcements is the Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller; a modular controller that costs a whopping US$149.99, which comes up to about RM560. That being said, it does have a slew of interesting features to warrant the high asking price.
As the Xbox One Elite is a modular controller, users can interchange almost every aspect of it; except for the controller itself, of course. The parts that can be changed include the d-pad, twin joysticks, and four new “paddle” buttons on the back of the controller.
What makes the Xbox One Elite an especially attractive controller is the fact that it will work with the Xbox One and Windows 10, although Microsoft did not clarify if it will work with Windows 8 – or any other version of Windows – as well. There will also be an app for the controller that enables users to customise the controller’s sensitivity and button mapping, among other things.
Microsoft’s Xbox One Elite controller will be available in October at a retail price of US$149.99. More information on the controller can be found on its official product page. It will be interesting to see if gamers are willing to pay that much for the controller, even though it offers a myriad of customisations.
