Xbox One Elite Controller

The Xbox One Elite Controller has been far more successful than Microsoft ever anticipated it to be- the controller, which retails for $150, has been sold out for months, and players have taken to it like bees to honey. Microsoft has promised that it is making its best effort to ensure that the controller stock stays replenished- but the company has warned that its stock situation may not be resolved until March 2016.

β€œWhile the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller is sold out in many retailers around the world, we are working quickly to get more units in the hands of fans. We expect more units to arrive at retailers each week but supply may be limited through March 2016.”

Honestly, in this case, I can’t blame Microsoft- I would have expected a $150 controller to be a niche product myself. I wouldn’t have expected demand for it to skyrocket like this.

Hopefully the situation is resolved soon.

      Yes really it plays games like its supposed to. Did you assume it was supposed to be your girlfriend to? Probably so.

      Shame about the actual game performance/graphics eh? BTW Drive Club dumps all over any racer on the Xbone!

      I have both consoles and Drive Club isn’t all that great at all. Forza 5 and 6 along with Horizon 2 on the other hand are all highly rated and solid games.

    • Evil_Annie_2015

      I just smiled when he mentioned Driveclub because it was a total failure from delays to its “release”. The sad part for the PS community is that it is the only racing exclusive they can talk about πŸ™‚
