In fact, the full name of the new controller sounds like Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 – Core, so everyone just calls the newly announced model Xbox Elite 2 Core.
The novelty is now available for pre-order at $129.99, it is $50 cheaper than the previous model, the Xbox Elite 2. Externally, both models are the same (except that the Xbox Elite 2 Core is presented in white), the price was achieved by abandoning the additional configuration.
Yes, the Xbox Elite 2 Core is sold without a case for transportation and without replacement components – a set of different-shaped joints, a D-pad in the shape of a “cross” and additional buttons on the back. All of this, along with the charging dock and USB-C cable, can be purchased separately as part of Complete Component Pack worth $59.99.
The novelty will go on sale on September 21, the regular version of the Xbox Elite 2 controller will also not go anywhere – its price remains unchanged, $179.99.
