Microsoft has shipped one million Xbox One Elite controllers to date


Not sold, but still impressive

Microsoft seemed to have struck gold with the Elite controller. At launch it was on backorder for months, given the "overwhelming demand" for the $150 controller. Let me say that again for emphasis -- this thing is $150.

Even then, they don't seem to have any trouble selling it, as Phil Spencer has noted that they have manufactured one million of them. Spencer doesn't specifically say "sold" here (think "shipped"), but I think it's particularly of note because it's one of the best controllers I've ever used, and people really should consider it if they game primarily on PC and Xbox One. For shooters and a few other genres I actually prefer Microsoft's console now just because I can use the Elite.

Next stop, Microsoft? Allow people to create one in the Design Lab!
