While the images being shown of the controller don’t confirm that the Xbox One Elite Controller v2 is a reality, the features do look like something Microsoft would be looking at if they were updating it with their push of Windows 10 gaming and the Xbox One X.
The Xbox One Elite Controller comes at a premium price of $149.99 / £119.99 / 149,99€ (or $299 if you want the SCUF Forza Elite Wireless Controller Edition) and wasn’t expected to be the massive hit it became. The controller was so in demand when it launched that Microsoft couldn’t keep up with demand and for some time the controller was only available through resellers.
