This particular Xbox One controller still isn't cheap, but it's a substantial saving on a piece of kit that will serve you well for years to come, whether you're playing on Xbox One, PC, or even Xbox Series X. A spreadsheet's worth of design improvements like wireless charging, textured grips, and adjustable tension on the control sticks make the Series 2 feel instantly more modern (and tough to put down) than its predecessor. Here's a little bit of what we thought of the controller in our 5-star review.
"The Xbox Elite Series 2 improves the expanded feature-set of the Elite in many ways, giving you more ways to remake your controller to run in a way that feels natural to you and you alone. Some of those features are common-sense updates, but you may be surprised by their impact. Truly, whether you are a power user looking to bend every game experience to your will, the way PC players tend to on a mouse and keyboard, or you simply want the most comfortable controller available, the Xbox One Elite Series 2 will give you what you need.
