Microsoft Announces New Xbox One Elite Controller…….in White

Posted on August 29, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Games, Xbox One with 6 Comments

Microsoft has a new Xbox One Elite Controller.

And it’s not the Elite Controller v2 everyone’s been waiting for.

Instead, it’s the same Elite Controller from 2015.

Just in white.

It does not include Bluetooth support, which Microsoft added to the current-gen Xbox controllers.

Available from October 16 for $149.99.

That’s it. Really.

You just have to keep waiting for the new, new Elite Controller now.

Oh, and, there’s a new Xbox One X Fallout 76 bundle and a Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2 gaming headset, all available in white.

    Lol....all this hype about a v2 and we get this, nothing changed but the color. The fact it does not have BT support is just lame.


    I have a black elite that I used wired to my PC/X. While it is nicer than a standard controller it is not worth the price. The only thing I use on it is the the short trigger pulls and only on one side now. The paddles on the bottom fall where my grip falls so I had to remove them, or change my grip...so I removed them. Other after market controllers have placed those paddles in the middle where it would not impact my grip.

    Any speculation as to why? Why this white one and not a v2?


    I'm a little bit pleased because my old v1 needs new grips, and I was concerned parts would be hard to come by.
