In addition to all of the features introduced in the first Elite controller, such as swappable, magnetic components, customizable button mapping, and trigger depth settings, the Elite 2 will allow you to do things like customize thumb stick tension and designate a "shift" button for alternate functions on any other button. It will also finally use Bluetooth instead of a custom wireless protocol and charge via USB for up to 40 hours of use. Microsoft has also confirmed that it will work Project Scarlett, the recently-announced upcoming console.

$180 is no joke for a gamepad when you can get Microsoft's perfectly solid base model for less than $60, but if you're ready to take the plunge on what is likely the best gamepad that your money can buy, we're here to help.
