Xbox Elite 2 Core Controller: barely released, already problems

Xbox Elite 2 Core Controller: barely released, already problems

Earlier this month, Microsoft announced the launch of its new controller dedicated to wealthy hardcore gamers: the Elite Series 2 Core Xbox Controller.

In the past, Microsoft has always managed to offer controllers globally praised for their functionality, scalability and reliability… But for the record, this new batch has missed its launch…

Available since September 21, the white high-end handheld in Core version (without accessories, offered separately) is already gathering a lot of criticism on Reddite and Twitter. Several problems seem to arise around the controller, including difficulties in detecting the A and Y buttons while others mention damaged front panels delivered, there is also drift on the joysticks…

Problems that do not stick to Microsoft’s promises

This is problematic on several levels:

  • First, the controller is priced at €129.99, which is particularly high.
  • The problems are the same ones that had already been seen on previous generations of controllers
  • Microsoft had announced that it had heard the previous criticisms and designed its controller to specifically avoid this kind of concern...

Microsoft had already proceeded to replace the Elite V1 and V2 controllers for these very reasons in the past… So it’s unacceptable to see the problems repeated with each release, especially since the brand had published various blog posts to talk about taking into account past feedback and experiences to improve the reliability of its controllers, thus presenting the Elite Series 2 as the most reliable controller for Xbox.
