Back at the E3 conference, Microsoft unveiled the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller which is said to be an “elite controller for elite gamers.” The controller comes with an excellent build quality and a premium look, with interchangeable parts, hair trigger locks, improved accuracy, high customization options, works with the Xbox One and Windows 10, and much more.
If you happen to be living in the UK, you be glad to know the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller is up for pre-orders in the UK for £119.99 incl. VAT though Microsoft Store UK (via Windows Central). It’s not just the UK, some local Microsoft Europe storage, such as Germany, are also taking pre-orders of the new gaming controller, but it costs €149.99 incl. VAT. It costs a little higher, but every country has its own set of expenses and taxes, which causes a difference in price. Plus, things are usually expensive in Europe compared to other global markets.
There’s no word about its release date at the moment, but reports suggest it will hit retail in October. We’ll update you as soon as we get any information about its exact availability date.Further reading: Microsoft, Xbox controller, Xbox One
