Microsoft already has in store a great piece of hardware that fans are looking forward to testing as soon as possible. We are referring to the original Duke controller.
But, the latest rumors that are surfacing are bringing some pretty good news along as well. It seems that the company is also working on a second-generation Xbox Elite controller as well.
A Chinese website posted pics of the alleged controller
Check out the features that will reportedly be included in this new controller Microsoft is supposedly working on:
- It will boast rechargeable batteries and undetachable MagSafe-like charge port.
- It will also include a USB Type-C.
- The new controller is supposed to support Bluetooth on Win10.
- It will come with 3-level Hair Trigger Locks and a 3-Profile Switch.
- The controller will sport longer keys for Paddles.
More reports are confirming the fact that Microsoft has been working on such a new device for a few months now and we tend to believe that the information regarding the Xbox Elite v2 controller may be accurate because you all know that there’s no smoke without fire.
Pricing and availability of the Xbox Elite v2 controller
The current version of the Xbox Elite controller that is already on the market priced at $149.99 offers a premium gaming experience. But unfortunately, a lot of users who have purchased it have been complaining about its faulty bumpers that seem to continually pop up or even break entirely. We hope that if there’s indeed another version of this controller on its way, Microsoft will rectify this issue.
It’s obviously not clear if this new controller will ever hit the market, but one can only hope. If it does, it will probably sport a price tag similar to the one of the first version of the controller. The original Xbox Elite controller was unveiled during E5 2015 so, who knows, maybe the new one will pop up during this year’s E3. Whenever it is launched, it will definitely turn out to be a great sidekick for the Xbox One X.
