Xbox: Spotted a new white Elite Controller


According to some reports on Twitter, there appears to be a new Xbox Elite Controller Series 2 on the way, in this case white, or at least mostly white, although there is not yet an official announcement from Microsoft.

It is somewhat difficult to understand precisely whether or not this is a new model or actually a variation of the Controller Elite Series 2, as many are reporting, but the characteristics visible from the photo, actually rather blurry and poorly defined, seem to lead to think it is a simple variant with a new color.

As can be seen in the photo posted in the tweet above, the controller appears to have a predominantly white color, but perhaps with some dark elements such as the grips with grips, which could be black. Difficult to understand precisely what it is, but if the photo is not counterfeit we will know more very soon.

According to what we can see, in fact, the new models of the Xbox Controller Elite Series 2 seem to be practically ready for the market, probably already sent to distribution, therefore an official announcement from Microsoft should arrive in the next days. It is to be hoped that the new model will be safe from the drifting problems that seem to have emerged on those currently on the market, so much so that it has prompted Microsoft to extend the standard warranty in the USA.

GTA 5 Enhanced Edition Biased Pricing Makes Xbox Fans Unhappy

The exclusivity war between Xbox and PlayStation is at its peak during the new generation of consoles, and it seems it’s just going to get worth with the recent pricing of GTA 5 Enhanced Edition on PS5 versus Xbox Series X.

Since the beginning of the 9th-generation of consoles, both Sony and Microsoft are looking forward to expanding their gaming branch by making big exclusivity deals with well-known developers and publishers.

  • While Microsoft is trying to purchase different big publishers and IP owners, Sony is making exclusivity deals on a game-by-game basis to increase its hardware sale.

    In between, the gamers that can’t afford to buy both platforms are losing significant content.

    The most recent clash between Sony and Microsoft is now showing itself in the launch of Grand Theft Auto 5 Enhanced Edition for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, where the PlayStation owners get more discounts than Xbox players.

    While Rockstar has not confirmed the official pricing for Grand Theft Auto 5 Enhanced Edition yet, the pre-orders for the game are now live, and the full bundle of GTA for next-gen consoles costs $39.99 on both PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

    That being said, Rockstar offers a limited-time discount on both platforms, and while PS5 players can get the full bundle for $9.99 at the moment, Xbox Series X|S owners need to pay $19.99, which means PlayStation players get more discount.

    Such biased pricing for GTA 5 Enhanced Edition has already made Xbox players unhappy with Rockstar’s approach. However, Xbox fans seem to be worried more about GTA 6 than GTA 5. If Sony makes any exclusivity deal with Rockstar Games towards their next Grand Theft Auto title, it would definitely hurt Xbox fans badly.

    Rockstar Games has already ditched PC for the next-gen update of GTA 5 as the developer has never been kind toward the PC players, but now showing less interest in Xbox could be a little bit worrying for those who don’t own a PS5.

    That being said, the relationship between Xbox and Rockstar has always been good, regarding the fact that we have already seen GTA 5, Red Dead Redemption 2, and GTA San Andreas Remastered on Xbox Game Pass multiple times.

    It’s worth noting that GTA Online is available for free for up to three months for PS5 owners who have a PS Plus subscription, while there is no such deal for Xbox Live Gold members on Xbox Series X|S.
