If you’re willing to spend a little extra cash, it may be worth investing in the Xbox Elite Series 2.
Although the Xbox Wireless Controller was almost double in price, we once called it the best Xbox controller money can buy. We loved how customizable it is, as well as features like the adjustable tension thumbsticks, the custom button mapping paddles, and the shorter hair 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 about 40 hours of playtime on a single charge.
While the Elite Series 2 typically retails for $179.99, we often see discounts on the controller. At the moment eg. Microsoft and Goal sell the black variant for $139.99. Microsoft also launched a new Halothemed Xbox Elite 2 controller in November alongside a limited edition, Halothemed Xbox Series X, but it’s currently only available on the pre-owned market.
