The white Xbox Elite controller is real and the new price tag is the best thing about it

Xbox’s new Elite controller might be for you, especially if you’ve been waiting for a more affordable option.

The Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 gets a new ‘Core Edition’ that comes in a smooth white finish – a big difference from the solid black of the original. And unlike the launch edition, you can buy the new controller as a standalone, without all the accessories that come with the black Elite Series 2. So it’s a drastically cheaper option, as long as you don’t bother with the extras.
