The Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 – Core is now available

Those who have been hoping for a cheaper and less involved Xbox Elite Controller may find the newly released Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 – Core of interest. When it launched this morning, it became the cheapest and easiest entry point to Microsoft’s line of luxury/pro controllers.

Retailing for $129.99 USD, the white Core controller slims things down and is cheaper because it doesn’t include the additional sticks, buttons and more, which allowed users to customize their Elite Series 2 pads. Through this more budget friendly approach, those add-ons have been turned into a separate, and optional, additional purchase. One that will set you back $59.99 USD.

In addition to this, Microsoft has made it possible to customize the colour of the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2’s — Core or otherwise — Xbox button. This can be done through the Xbox Accessories App.
