Looks like Microsoft's pricy Xbox Elite controller is getting an upgrade

17 January 2018

Microsoft introduced the first Xbox Elite Wireless Controller at the E3 gaming conference nearly three years ago - and it could be about to announce a new version very soon.

Moreover, the controller is alleged to have three-level hair trigger locks (as opposed to the current Elite's two) and new handgrips.

Chelsea would be looking to secure their first victory of 2018, having played a 0-0 stalemate with Arsenal recently. Meanwhile, Victor Moses gave a good account of himself as he featured for the entire duration of the game.

The new pad has - finally - a USB-C port for charging. However, the image with the stick removed shows a slot that suggests the user can manually turn it to adjust the tension. Back in December, Microsoft filed a patent with the same adjustable stick design and the leaked photos seem to match the illustrations from the patent filing. Three LEDs are also present which is speculated to represent either battery life or extra profile support. The only question that remains is when exactly will Microsoft unveil this new version of the controller?

Another image posted to Reddit appears to show the entire controller, with newly designed grip sections.

Microsoft has released some notable accessories over the years, but perhaps none have been better received by fans than the Xbox One Elite Wireless controller.

While the Xbox Elite controller on the market right now offers a premium gaming experience-as it should at its price tag of $149.99-many who bought it complained about faulty bumpers that would constantly pop out or break entirely. A source familiar with Microsoft's plans confirmed to The Verge that the photo shared on Reddit is authentic. It could happen at the Games Developer Conference in March or E3 in June. Some fans had previously complained about faulty grips with the original Elite controller, so it appears Microsoft is listening.
