elite series 2 controller review
It is reasonable to assume that if you’re here, reading reviews for the Elite Series 2 Xbox controller, you’re already a gamer or trying to find a present for a gamer.
So you do not got to be tired of the nitty gritty details but this controller works with Xbox, PC, and bluetooth devices including iPads, etc.
I attached photos of my unboxing to the present review so you’ll see what’s included. Worth noting is that several of the accessories fell out of their slots during shipping.
Long story short, the Elite Series 2 may be a remarkably well built controller. i used to be absolutely stunned by the planning and a spotlight to detail.
it’s a surprising amount of heft but doesn’t feel heavy compared to a traditional Xbox controller. Here are the most differences compared to a typical Microsoft branded Xbox One controller:
1. Rubberized grip around the handles
2. Swappable magnetic joystics for different length/feel
3. Swappable magnetic d-pad from standard to disc shaped
4. Up to 4 optional paddles on the back of the controller
5. Adjustable tension joysticks
6. Adjustable trigger locks to increase/decrease length of pull
7. Rechargeable battery via USB-C (built in)
The controller comes nicely packaged
The controller comes nicely packaged in a zippered case, where it rests on a removable charging cradle and has slots for the various parts and accessories included.
It can be charged directly via USB-C or set on the cradle either within or outside of the case. Note that the USB-C cable and the manual are underneath the case in the box, so the reviewer stating it wasn’t included may just need to dig a little further.
The first time I connected the Elite 2 to my Xbox, it did a quick 2ish minute update and I was ready to go. The Xbox Accessories app lets you completely customize the button layout and joystick sensitivity as well as program as many or as few of the paddles on the back to your liking.
You can then save these to up to 3 profiles directly on the controller which are swappable with the new face button in the middle and indicated by the 3 lights.
