We knew that the elite controller would launch this fall but, Amazon has revealed the official release date for the Xbox One Elite controller and it isn’t much of a shock. It will now launch alongside Halo 5 Guardians on October 27th at it’s special price of $149.99.
The controller is Microsoft’s new one aimed at competitive gaming with hairline triggers, paddles on the rear instead of buttons for faster shooting as well as programmable face buttons and interchangeable thumbsticks and D-pad. Plus, if you plan on playing Halo, Gears of War or any other shooter you may want to pick it up anyway to give you that extra edge even if you don’t play competitively.
Will you be getting the Elite Controller?
