The Xbox Elite Controller looks like a seriously complicated piece of tech. But I’d expect no less from a device that carries a $149.99 price tag.
In this new video, Microsoft’s Navin Kumar discusses the many features of the Xbox Elite Controller including the swappable sticks, and the customization options available through the Xbox Accessories app. Kumar covers a lot of crowd, but the developer seems most excited about the controller’s ability to offer unique control schemes for different weapons in first person shooters like Halo 5: Guardians or Call of Duty: Black Ops III.
Best of all, Xbox One owners will get to try out the app’s many features without having to shell out an ammount of cash equivalent to three games. Microsoft’s Mike Ybarra confirmed (via Twitter) that the Xbox Accessories app’s fancy customization options will work with all Xbox One controllers when it launches alongside this November’s Dashboard Update.
