Microsoft recently presented its new, powerful Xbox One Elite controller at E3. This ‘beast’ of controller will be available at the price of $149 and will definitely start a new era of gamepads. This gamepad doesn’t just look great, but it is also a powerful tool for navigating the 3D reality environments of HoloLens or Oculus Rift.

Naturally, as Microsoft released this gadget, it perfectly makes sense that the new controller will be compatible with the upcoming Windows 10 operating system. The controller should be a part of Microsoft’s drive for cross compatibility between Xbox One (or alternate reality device your using this device with) and PCs.

For even better compatibility, Microsoft will release an Universal app for Windows 10, so you’ll be able to configure this versatile gamepad even more. Speaking of the release, Xbox One Elite controller will arrive in stores in October this year, which is a perfect timing for the beginning of sales season. Xbox Elite Wireless controller maybe costs $90 more than a regular Xbox controller, but it offers plenty of extra features, and a lot of profiles for each game type. Also, all information about profiles or settings could be stored on the device or in the cloud. But, even if it offers a lot of new features and customizations, it’s still powered by 2 AA batteries, and can be used as a wireless gamepad, or you can connect it with the device via wired USB connection.

What do you think about this new Xbox One controller, are you willing to give $150 for a gamepad, or you believe that “shoes you’re wearing don’t make you a better player?”
