    Microsoft is indeed working on a new Xbox Elite Controller, working to address feedback and make improvements on the first version.
    Leaked via Chinese site Baidu and later confirmed by The Verge, the new Xbox Elite Controller looks to be an iterative update on the original controller, which came with a range of premium features (and at a premium $150 price point).
    The original Xbox Elite Controller supported Xbox Wireless, but only supported USB for PC connectivity. It sported two separate profiles for configurable button mapping, as well as locks for the triggers, making them activate more quickly. It also came with four additional buttons on the reverse of the controller in the form of paddles, which could be configured and removed at will. Additionally, the joysticks on the original Elite controller came with extra options, both from first and third-party vendors. Longer joystick options increased the distance from the pivot, for example, allowing for more precision without sacrificing turn speed. The directional pad also came with more robust options too.
    The new Xbox Elite Controller seems to be a little more of an "evolution" rather than revolution at this point, but from what we're hearing from our own sources as well as those posted on various forums, it looks set to improve on the original controller in every way.
