Microsoft first unveiled this Xbox Elite Wireless Controller at E3 2015. This controller has swappable parts, enhanced sensitivity, and hair-trigger locks. There is an option of remapping buttons too. This is not an average gamepad.
Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Launch
Xbox Elite Wireless Controller was all set for launching in the United States in the month of October, followed by regions. However, it is unlikely this controller will cost more than $149 in India. However, if the Flipkart listing is to be believed, we could be wrong.
As per an e-commerce giant, this Xbox Elite Wireless Controller has a release date of tentatively 31st of March and would get by Flipkart’s preferred retail partner, W.S. Retail. It’s price tag Rs.10,990 which makes people wonder that it would be available for purchase.
As of now, its availability would be seen on Flipkart for pre-order. As of now, there is no official listing on Snapdeal or Amazon despite both of them stocking peripherals, games and Xbox One consoles.
A Flipkart Exclusive?
Could this be exclusive to Flipkart? It appears to be so. For this, Amazon India that partnered with Microsoft for launching Xbox One doesn’t even have Xbox One and Windows 10 PC exclusive Quantum Break listed at this moment neither does Flipkart and Snapdeal.
It is an odd decision to make both Xbox Elite Wireless Controller and Quantum Break exclusive to Flipkart considering that the focus on gaming has reduced over the years.
The Xbox Elite Wireless Controller is very comfortable to grasp. It has got rave reviews. Even though the prices may fool you to think that it is only for the heavy gamers, it is not. Even regular Peggle Kings can use it. But of course, it also caters to the core group of Call of Duty players who love this game diligently.
