New Xbox Elite 2 Core Controller Announced, With Xbox Design Labs Options

Today, Xbox has announced a cheaper, ‘core’ option for their flagship Xbox Elite 2 controller, where the extra peripherals come separate as opposed to included.

A bombshell was dropped on Xbox Twitter today, and the post showcased a stylish white colourway for their Xbox Elite 2 premium controller option, but not only does it come as $50 cheaper, it sheds all the baggage the original option came with. The reveal can be seen below:

So, Xbox has given the option to the players on whether they would prefer to have the extra components arrive with their Xbox Elite 2, or just the core components that aim to sort declining K/D ratios. Of course, gamers could potentially buy the Core, and then opt to snag the peripherals for $59.99 down the road if they wish, but the standard Elite 2 will still be available for the gamers who want the entire experience.

Microsoft wasn’t finished just yet, they also dropped a tidbit of information regarding the Elite 2’s entry into the design labs, allowing gamers to take their customization up one more notch. The video trailer merely showcases the faceplate colour changing, and a ‘Holiday 2022’ release window, so full customization options have yet to surface as well as a concrete release date.
