NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - October 27, 2015) - Every professional needs a specialized set of tools -- a watchmaker has tap and die tools, a plumber has specialty wrenches, an artist has brushes of every shape and size -- and now, gamers have one to call their own. The Microsoft Xbox Elite Wireless Controller is here and, like the Maltese falcon, it is the stuff that dreams are made of -- gamers’ dreams, that is.

The controller includes stainless-steel thumbstick shafts for durability and reliability, and two directional pads (D-pads) for traditional eight-way maneuvering or a recessed disc that allows greater thumb gymnastics for tighter game play. Low-friction, reinforced rings around each thumbstick minimize wear and provide smooth, seamless game play.

There are also four slots in the back of the controller for interchangeable paddles that let you perform intricate moves that may prove too much for the front controls. The four traditional controller triggers now include haptic feedback and rumble motors that can have their intensity controlled in the settings.

With four front buttons, four paddles, and four triggers now on one controller, every move can have its own slot. With the easy-to-use app (for use on Windows 10 devices and Xbox One), you can assign any of the 14 inputs to any button, and you can even load profiles onto the controller and tag out using a built-in Profile Switch.

Want to execute a lethal fighting combo in your favorite brawler? How about calling devastating airstrikes in your favorite military sim? Alien invasion giving you a problem? Wipe out entire hordes with a few assignable buttons, and make quick work of your score-padding.

The Microsoft Xbox Elite wireless controller comes with a carrying case, 4 paddles, 6 thumbsticks, and a set of two D-pads. Also included are two AA batteries and a microUSB port for wired use. As with all Xbox One controllers, you can also use an optional wireless charge-and-play kit for rechargeable, cord-free use.

Available now for pre-order at B&H Photo, this is the top of the list for almost all gamers who want to customize and enhance their game play this season.
