Unveiled at E3 2015, the Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller is an accessory that many loyal Xbox fans have been waiting for. With a price tag of $149.99 the Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller is not for you average gamer.
Noteable features to the Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller are 4 magnetic paddle buttons on the underside of the controller, hairpin trigger locks, magnetic d-pad, and magnetic thumb sticks. It also has what seems like a leather exterior for added grip. Also included with the controller is a tangle free USB cord. And, if you’re one of those gamers who refuses to use batteries and keeps your controller permanently plugged in, you’ll be happy to know that the Play ‘N’ Charge kit for the regular Xbox One controller works perfectly fine in the new Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller.

Racing games feel more realistic by having the paddle buttons act as paddle shifters and clutch. Different abilities can be mapped to more buttons to make role-playing games more exciting.
Some might criticize and say that the Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller is like the controller of cheaters, but a gamer must know what he-she is doing in order to fully take advantage of all the features it has to offer. As mentioned above, the Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller is not for your average gamer.
