Although many were hoping for a second-generation controller, Microsoft has unveiled a new version of its popular Xbox Elite controller in Robot White color that matches the company’s own Xbox One S and Xbox One X console in White (of course).
New Xbox Elite Controller In Robot White
This new controller was previously codenamed Washburn, which for some reasons won’t include Bluetooth support for wireless connections to Windows 10 PCs or a modern USB-C port. No aesthetic or features changes as of the Xbox Elite controller that shipped back in 2015.
If you can’t recall, the features include four programmable paddles, four alternate joysticks and an alternate omnidirectional pad. All of these swappable components can also be programmed to set presets for different games using a customization app.
Going down with the rumors, it seems that Microsoft has canceled its Xbox Elite V2 controller that leaked earlier this year. Well, the new white controller is priced at US$149.99 (~ Rs 10,581) and goes on sale at Microsoft Stores and GameStop (and other retailers worldwide) on October 16th.
