Or is it just one of Phil's balls in my throat?
That red one looks legit good. If these drop < $100 I'll probably end up picking one.

Did they ever fix the QA issues with the controller? I almost picked one up a month ago but couldn't find any updates so I just went with a regular series controller.


Bought the white one on the day it came out (was it like 6 months ago?) and still works great. Phew.

It's kind of hard going back to regular series controller after this.


thinks Halo Infinite is a new graphical benchmark
The general Xbox gamer doesn’t want an elite controller but I understand why premium versions of things exist.


There is still stick drift. You basically pay more for the same trash. It will break in a few month of use, depending of what games you play. Like all modern controllers.
