Microsoft has announced the new Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 Core, available in white, with the “essential components” of an Xbox Elite controller, like adjustable-tension analogue sticks, rubberised grip, and hair trigger locks, a high build quality, and battery life that offers up to 40 hours of continuous use.

If you choose to purchase the Core version of the Xbox Elite Series 2 controller, you can get the Complete Component Pack separately for $59.99/£54.99, which bundles all of the standard Elite Series 2 controller's additional components, so you can customise it to your liking. The Complete Component Pack includes interchangeable thumbsticks, paddle shapes, and d-pad in a carry case, alongside a charging dock and USB-C cable.

The new Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 - Core can be pre-ordered now, and will be available for $129.99/£114.99, alongside the Complete Component Pack, in “select Xbox markets” from 21st September. The Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 will also be coming to the Xbox Design Lab this holiday, enabling you to purchase the controller in a range of different colours.

  • Garbage. Unless MS has fixed the reoccurring bumper issues this is junk. What fails is a tiny plastic piece between the pressure points of the bumper and the inside trigger. It's unreal that they simply can't fix this.
  • @one84 I have had that issue so far knock on wood

    I will probably buy a core controller seems smart to sell that I can buy a third party attachment kit
  • Had more Elite controllers replaced than I have fingers on both hands. Done with them, they're junk. Every revision has failed repeatedly and I won't ever pay for one again.
  • Agreed premium in name only, nothing premium about cheap build that breaks down and that’s even for casual player like me!
  • I literally had to get mine replaced about 7 or 8 times due to numerous issues, ranging from stick drift, sticking buttons, unresponsive bumpers and even dead jacks, I eventually gave up getting them replaced because it was never going to stop. Never again will I buy an elite controller, it's shocking how they're so poorly made and even more shocking that Microsoft just doesn't care.
  • Meh... talk to me when you make series 3 and yet again only if the build standard has improved dramatically!
  • Still over priced controllers should not cost more then £50
