We love our Elite Wireless Controllers. The Elite – which raised some eyebrows on its initial reveal – quickly became the must-have peripheral, its form and function easily matching the high asking price. We gave it a full five stars at launch, and a year later it made our 2016 Christmas Gift list. It’s just that good. Could it be ripe for a makeover? Maybe. The standard controller has reached its third generation, after the June 2015 update added a 3.5mm audio jack and removed the IR emitters, and the recent redesign to add Bluetooth connectivity. Our friends over at Windows … Read More »

The Elite Controller is – in our words – the best video game controller ever offered by a console manufacturer. We awarded this £119.99 accessory a perfect five stars, and we’ve yet to find any controller that beats it – it’s easy to see why on release it sold out faster than a doughnut stand next to Chief Wiggum’s patrol car. With replaceable parts a feature of the Elite – thumbsticks, d-pad and paddles can all be swapped out – we thought there would be a market for aftermarket parts – but actually these have been pretty thin on the ground. PowerA stepped up, … Read More »

So earlier (here) we covered the best console deals that we’d seen up until that point. This time around it’s the turn of the games and add ons such as Live subscriptions. Titanfall 2 – £19.99 – HMV No that isn’t a typo, if there’s a HMV near you that you’ve not yet visited then get down there ASAP as this deal is only available in store and while stocks last. Short of that head on over to Amazon where you can nab a copy for £28, which while isn’t quite as impressive as HMV’s £19.99 it’s still a monster saving … Read More »

Scuf Gaming is one of the iconic custom controller companies around, so it makes very good business sense for Xbox to bring SCUF on board with their very popular Elite controller. SCUF has been officially announced as the exclusive third-party accessory partner for the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller. The company will begin releasing accessories for the pro-gaming controller before the end of 2016 with the first being a range of different colored replaceable grips, thumbsticks, and paddle control systems. “Since creating a new market space for customizable professional gaming controllers 5 years ago, our vision has always been to see the … Read More »

All of these turned out to be true! Now this isn’t a recent thing, Ekim has been regarded as an industry insider for quite some time … Read More »
