Microsoft on Monday announced the

In October 2014, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said improving Xbox One load times was high on his priority list.

As previously announced, the Elite Xbox One wireless controller, which also works with PC on Windows 10, features interchangeable paddles and hair trigger locks. It also lets you adjust the trigger minimum and maximum values, thumbstick sensitivity, and button assignments. In short, you can assign any of the controller’s 14 different inputs to the ABXY buttons, paddles, D-pad, triggers, and thumbstick clicks

The Xbox One Elite bundle launches worldwide in November for $500. In the United States, it will be sold exclusively through GameStop and Microsoft stores for the month of November. The new Elite controller, meanwhile, launches in October and sells for $150 by itself.

Finally, Microsoft also announced today a “Lunar White” version of the standard Xbox One controller. It sports all the new refinements, a slick-looking color scheme, and “improved grip texture.” In the US, this controller will be sold only at GameStop, where it will cost $65 starting in late September.
