When Microsoft announced the Xbox One Elite controller, it was praised for its top-grade materials and customizability. Now, a year and a half later it’s getting another facelift. Microsoft and Scuf are partnering to deliver a handful of new colors, patterns and hardware for the Elite controller. You can’t quite do everything that the Xbox Design Lab offers, but you’re certainly going to be able to stand out from your gaming buddies.
There are carbon fiber skins and blue or purple trims that can be added around each thumbsticks. You can customize the face buttons, as well as the sliders with new colors too. Best of all is the swappable levers on the backside that bring vertical functionality instead of the original horizontal paddles. This is likely to be very attractive for competitive gamers looking for an edge over the competition. The accessory kits start at $30 and are slated to begin shipping before long.
Since we first launched the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller last year, Xbox and PC gamers alike have loved it’s complete customizability. From the interchangeable thumbsticks, paddles and D-pad to the Xbox Accessories app where gamers can remap buttons, the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller lets you play to your maximum potential for longer and more comfortably. We are thrilled that the fan response has been very positive and are committed to providing all gamers the opportunity to customize and play the way they want to. With this in mind, we’re excited to share a new range of Designed for Xbox products from SCUF that have been built specifically for the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller.
