Xbox One Elite Controller Sold Out

Since day one when Microsoft released information on a brand new Elite controller with a fully customizable set of buttons and thumbsticks, the Xbox community has been abuzz with excitement. We where lucky to get our hands on this beautiful piece of kit at EGX and I have to say well worth the money, because of the buzz unfortunately the Elite controller is out of stock until the Christmas holidays.

Microsoft had this to say:

“We’re thrilled at the amount of interest we’ve received for the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller,”

“We are working quickly to get more units of the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller in the hands of fans, and look forward to replenishing inventory in time for the holidays.”

If you can’t wait, however, you can still get one — and it’s a pretty decent deal as long as you don’t already own an Xbox One.

“If you’re looking for an Xbox One console as well, another great option for fans is the Xbox One Elite Bundle, which comes with an Xbox Elite Wireless Controller and a 1TB Solid State Hybrid Drive,” the spokesperson said. “[It is] available starting Tuesday, November 3 at Microsoft Stores and GameStop.”

It’s not too surprising that it’s selling out because it is excellent. The spokesman also commented:

“We are always looking for ways to bring the best experiences to all of our fans on Xbox,” said the spokesperson. “And the excitement and interest from gamers for the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller has been overwhelming.”

On the gaming message board NeoGAF, Xbox boss Phil Spencer reiterated those sentiments.

“[We’re] definitely pleasantly surprised by the consumer response to this product,” wrote Spencer. “The controller was designed for a niche consumer base, for the hardcore and pro players. We did not expect the demand that this controller received. We do plan on increasing production of the product to meet consumer demand.”

I hoping this awesome controller comes into stock soon as I want one myself!
