  • New Xbox Elite Wireless Controller model leaks with USB-C

The original controller, the one now available, was first introduced back in mid-2015.

The latest design builds on the design of the first originally unveiled during E3 2015 and later launched priced at $149, offering four interchangeable paddles, hair-trigger locks, remarkable buttons and swappable components. Images of the updated version of the Elite controller spotted on Chinese site Baidu show the same features as the original, alongside a few added extras. An anonymous poster claims the new version will include a USB-C port for charging, Bluetooth support for Windows 10, three-level Hair Trigger Locks, longer key travel for the paddles, and a three-profile switch. Microsoft is also testing this controller design alongside a new case that will charge it on the go.

The Verge notes that Microsoft filed a patent in December for an adjustable lock design for controller thumbsticks, which these images appear to contain, potentially lending credibility to the images.

Excitingly, the joysticks also appear to have an adjustable tension mechanism that would let you control how loose or stiff they feel.

An additional image has been uploaded on Reddit, and it actually shows off the whole controller.

This is probably in response to Xbox users who have complained about the wearing-down of existing Elite controllers. Do any of you happen to have an Xbox Elite controller?
