Gah!
Is the build quality on the regular elite really that bad?
I just ordered one yesterday!
I thought the point of the elite was to NOT suffer from bad buttons and stick drift, what on earth is the higher prize for if not quality?

Have you been under a rock the last two weeks?
- Halo 6 will have massive player counts in multiplayer (much higher than Halo 5) and massive maps
- Fable reboot by Playground Games
- Perfect Dark is getting rebooted with modern gameplay elements, The Coalition seems to be using a small support team on it with a different team MAINLY developing it.
- Microsoft wants to reboot NBA Jam
- Crackdown 3 Beta is coming very soon
- A mech game is getting made exclusively for Xbox One and Windows 10
- Electric Square is working on AAA well-known franchise for Microsoft
- Storylabs put a post up accidentally showing that The Coalition and Storylabs was helping on a new IP (although there’s speculation that they just meant a IP not Gears of War and this could indeed be Perfect Dark)
- Rare might be doing something for 20th anniversary of Banjo (either a cameo in an existing game or a remaster of the original game — this could literally be ANYTHING so don’t get too hyped for this one)
- WindowsCentral reported that Microsoft was working on a hardware project codenamed Project Scarlet
- Elite Controller 2.0 now leaked (and probably is Scarlet)

DISCLAIMER: I’m not an insider. I just have been following all the leaks.

This is a lot of shit in two weeks you have to admit.
lol I guess I've been under a rock. I only heard about the possible Fable thing.

I still don't understand how the charging port can be both non-detachable and also 'MagSafe' style.

That completely contradicts itself, especially if it 's also USB C???

Like, how? All three of those statements contradict each other.

They're all still rumours and I think most of those didn't even get a thread. These have been talked about in the Microsoft First Party thread which may be why some folks haven't heard about them.

I think it’s overblown. I have had my Elite for almost two years now and have had no issues. I also have afew friends on Xbox live that also have one and none of them have issues either.


I hope the Elite 2 comes with detachable battery pack. I use eneloops plus the MS battery pack for my Elite and it’s just gravy. If the Elite two infact does have a built in battery pack, I hope it’s easily changeable.


Someone in here said their launch PS4 controller still works? Mine can barely hold a charge anymore, plus the R2 button is dead and the sticks are completely worn down to plastic.

I wish it had ps4 support. I hate the DS4. I almost wish I wouldn't have went sony this gen just because of the controller.
DS4 is a damn good controller, minus the horrid battery. Big step do from DS3. That being said, it’s no Elite controller for sure. I would by a DS4 Elite controller if it were ever released because the current MS Elite controller makes the rest feel cheap AF. I hate I ever bought the thing due to this fact.

Your guys know you can charge devices when you aren't using them, right?
Perhaps the better question is, do you know that you can plug in an elite controller when the battery dies and continue playing? Or alternatively you could have a spare set of AA eneloops around and NEVER play wired on your "wireless" controller.

Internal batteries are a step backward IMO and unless this was cheaper than current elite, I would not consider specifically because of that. I'd also appreciate a re-design of the bumpers as that is the only thing that has failed on my current elite.

i'm in. i need a replacement. hope the bumpers see some major improvement in design they, its laughable how they are engineered in the original (and default x1 pads)

Probably is USB-C and it comes with a magsaf cable. You put the USB-C dongle inside it.

I know it's been beaten into the ground but I've been going back and forth on purchasing an Elite (v1) now that I have an Xbox One X and have started using the console for practically everything (even have my PS4 HDMI going through it right now... aha..). I'll wait a few more months before pulling the trigger on the purchase, I think. Especially with the possibility of a v2 coming out. I'm content with both of my controllers for now.

Most of those aren’t hints i really need fixed. Built battery would be a step backwards imo.

I’ll stick with my current Elite. Best controller ever, though I only use it on pc.

Have a Xbox One and a Xbox 360 controller for my PC and I keep going back to the Xbox 360 controller. The sticks are way too loose on the One and just don't feel right. Is the Elite better in this area?

Imagine an E3 2018 presentation with Microsoft revealing Halo 6, a Fable reboot, a Perfect Dark Reboot, an NBA Jam reboot, a new Mech Warrior, and all of those other potential reveals. They'd win E3.

About damn time.

I just hope the build quality is better this time around. It is absurd the amount of broken Elites I've seen.

I wish they would go one step further with customisation and let us switch the placement of the dpad, face buttons, and sticks. I want the right stick up where the face buttons are.

Don't like the sound of a rechargable internal battery, yuck. Only reason to do that is forced obsoletion to make you buy another in a few years time.

Also that bag looks so cheap compared to the case the first one comes in. Surely that's not going to be the final case.

I want to live in a world where every damn thing is done either wirelessly or via USB type c ports and this is one step closer so yaay.

Heres hoping the iPhone makes the leap over to USB type c as well

I hope they work on the durability of the stick modules and shoulder buttons. I can't wait for USB C controllers and it hearkens back to the OG xbox and 360 with the "rip away" cords.
