Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 Core hits $110 Amazon low, or black model at $140

Jun 05, 2023

Update: The Microsoft store is now matching Amazon on the blue model and you’ll also find the fully-featured Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 in black on sale at $139.99 shipped, down from the regular $180.

After launching the standard white Core edition pro controller back in September 2022, Microsoft released the more colorful versions of its latest Elite Series 2 gamepads with red and blue paint jobs. The latter of which has now hit its best price ever on Amazon. Regularly $130, you can now bring the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 Core in blue home for $109.99 shipped. This is a solid 21% off the going rate and the lowest price we have tracked on Amazon. For comparison, it is also now undercutting the current $111 on the white model and the $127 going rate for the red variant. The Core models deliver a trimmed down and more affordable entry point into Microsoft’s current-generation pro-grade controllers with adjustable-tension thumbsticks, wrap-around rubberized grip, and shorter hair trigger locks. The expected custom button mapping options via the Xbox Accessories app can be saved within three recallable profiles alongside the up to 40-hour battery life. They might not have as many bells and whistles out of the box as the standard Elite Series 2, but they are also a more affordable way to score all of the aforementioned customization action. More details can be found in our hands-on review and down below.

Not impressed by the pro-grade Elite gamepads? Grab an 8Bitdo Ultimate Wired Controller for Xbox instead. Not only is it far less pricey, but it also provides custom button mapping, three profiles, and the ability to adjust the stick and trigger sensitivity. Just don’t expect to get something quite as pro-grade as the wireless Elite Series 2 gamepads at $25 here.
