The Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 promises up to 40 hours per charge


What a beauty

Microsoft is taking another stab at the Xbox Elite Controller and we got our first look at the high-end gamepad during the company's E3 2019 press conference. I don't need to buy another one of these, but I kinda do. The first controller was so nice. This one looks even nicer!

The Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 touts adjustable-tension thumbsticks, higher precision control, a new trigger grip, redesigned bumpers, shorter hair trigger locks, a wrap-around rubberized grip, more thumbstick and paddle customization options, three profiles for your settings, Bluetooth, and a new internal rechargeable battery and dock with up to 40 hours of playtime per charge.

It'll arrive on November 24 in "24 markets," and will clock in at a hefty $179.99 price tag.
