Xbox One Elite Controller release date revealed

The Xbox One Elite Controller releases on October 27th.

The Xbox One Elite Controller will be releasing on October 27th, alongside Halo 5: Guardians

The Microsoft Store revealed the release date of the Elite Controller, which retails at $149.99.

This is a huge price tag; however, it does seem to offer the best possible controller experience on Xbox One. The Elite Controller comes with interchangeable parts that will adjust to the type of game that you are playing, along with your style.

Each of the different thumbsticks and D-pads offer something new and unique, which certainly makes the price tag interesting. While the money you would spend on the controller could essentially go towards two and a half games, this should be a big hit among the hardcore Xbox gamer base.

What do you think? If you own an Xbox One will you be picking up the Elite Controller? Let me know in the comments if you think the controller is worth the big retail price.

    I think it's worth saying that it's £120 in the UK.
