Players now have tons of options at their disposal to customize their controllers and make them just right. From billions of colors to almost any external part of the controller – if you want it, you got it. Gamers can now change the body, back casing, D-pad, bumpers, and more.
For the first time ever, you can also customize parts of the controller like the thumbstick base and ring. It may sound like tiny details, but nothing can be ignored when making a controller that’s truly yours. Players can also choose between a cross-shaped or faceted D-pad if they have a preference. Want a laser engraving to make sure everyone knows who it belongs to? You can do that too! The customizability of the Elite Series 2 controllers works especially well with the design lab, letting you get your own personal competitive – or comfortable – edge.
Personalizing your own Elite Series 2 controller comes at a cost though. Gamers can expect pricing to start at $149.99. Extra Elite Accessory Packs and add-ons like a charging pack or carrying case will cost you extra. There is also the option to completely customize the Elite 2 controller and all of the Elite components, which will run you about $209.99 – but it’s all in the name of style and comfort.
The Xbox Design lab is currently open to orders from “the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, most Western European countries, and select Southeast Asian countries,” according to Microsoft.
