The Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Is The Good Kind Of Crazy

Much more than just a stereo headphone jack, Microsoft’s newly-revealed Xbox Elite Wireless Controller is a modular, remap-able and tweak-able work of engineering art.

We knew there was a new Xbox One controller coming, but this is much more than wse expected. Bits come off and move around. Steering wheel controller-style paddles in the back can be tweaked and respositioned. The thumbsticks are new. The d-pad is barely a d-pad anymore. What the hell is going on?

It kinda reminds me of Mad Catz’s modular controller from back in 2011, only taken to the next level. I shall need several of these once fall rolls around.
