While MS E3 2019 press wasn't really to write home about, (besides Cyberpunk 2077) Their new Elite controller did and even I was impress, this new Elite Controller will be great for my PC giving the fact my original Elite is still good but it's showing it's age due to heavy gaming on it. Obviously I love all the improved functions and 3 presets but I have 2 gripes.
- Internal rechargeable battery. Goodbye swapping out batteries in the middle of a game. It's not a deal breaker but why do this? Now the controllers life is tied to the battery not the controller itself.
- The rubber grips now go over the entire bottom of the controller. For those who have had the Elite for more than a year, you know what happens to those grips overtime especially with sweaty hands. Now enjoy it when most of the bottom half it peeled away.
It ain't cheap, $180 is pricey but hey, you get what you pay for and I know what I'm getting, a fucking good controller to be use everyday when KB/M isn't needed. What's your opinion on the new Elite Controller? Like it or hate it?
