Microsoft has revealed a new wireless controller for Xbox One, designed for professional gamers.


Xbox Elite is the name of Microsoft’s new pro controller for Xbox One.

The controller comes with swappable components (thumbsticks, D-pads, and paddles), hair trigger locks, as well as other ways that allow for more customisation options such as trigger sensitivity, button mapping, and more. On the backside, there are four paddles, a feature that’s not available on regular controllers.

All of that is housed into a “premium design” with stainless steel features. Microsoft has not revealed a date or price as of yet.

The Xbox Elite Controller also supports Windows 10.
