Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller back and front

Xbox One Elite controller now ready for pre-order

Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller priced at $149.99 and you can pre-order it now from Amazon.

During the Xbox E3 2015 briefing, Microsoft unveiled a number of changes coming to Xbox and among the announcements the company introduced the new Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller, which it was described as “an elite controller for the elite gamer.”

And for those wondering when pre-orders will open, well… Today is the day. Amazon is opening the doors for customers to pre-order the new Xbox One Elite controller, but perhaps the most important piece of information is that we now know how much it’s going to cost. Amazon has priced the controller at $149.99 with an expected release date as December 31, 2015. However, keep in mind that Microsoft has previously said that the controller will be available in October, so chances are that Amazon can publicly reveal at this time the specific date and it’s using temporary setting.
