Xbox Elite 2 Core

Xbox Elite Series 2 Core Announced

Microsoft has announced the Xbox Elite 2 Core controller and it will be a bit less expensive than the Xbox Elite 2. Coming in at $50 dollars less than its older brother, the Core features fewer interchangeable components but worry not, you can pick those up separately.

The Core includes adjustable-tension thumbsticks, wrap-around rubberized grip, and shorter hair trigger locks. Retailing for $129 US or $170 CAD, the Core is a controller made to be more accessible.

Furthermore, the Core also leaves behind a carrying case, rear paddles, and additional thumbsticks. If you decide in the future you want these components then it’ll be an additional $60 US or $79 CAD. This includes all the below:

  • Carrying case
  • Charging dock
  • Classic thumbsticks (2)
  • Tall thumbstick (1)
  • Dome thumbstick (1)
  • Cross-shaped D-pad (1)
  • Set of four paddles: medium (2), mini (2)
  • USB-C cable

If you prefer the current Xbox Elite 2 controller, it is still available and has been added to the Xbox Design Lab.
