If you’re willing to shell out a little extra cash, it might be worth investing in the Xbox Elite Series 2.
Although almost twice the price of the Xbox Wireless Controller, we’ve already dubbed it the best Xbox controller you can buy. We loved its customization, along with features like tension-adjustable thumbsticks, paddles for custom button mapping, and shorter trigger locks. The controller also offers USB-C and Bluetooth connectivity, and great battery life whether you’re playing on an Xbox One, Xbox Series X, or Windows 10 device. In fact, we were able to enjoy around 40 hours of playtime on a single charge.
Although the Elite Series 2 usually retails for $179.99, we often see discounts on the controller. At the moment, for example, Microsoft and Target are selling the black variant for $139.99. Microsoft has also launched a new Halo– themed Xbox Elite 2 controller in November alongside a limited edition, HaloXbox Series X-themed, however, it’s currently only available on the used market.
