Microsoft gave us our first glimpse of the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 at its E3 2019 presentation.

According Microsoft's Larry Hryb, the controller has been complete re-engineered for the ultimate performance. It will also be highly customisable, allowing you to tweak how it feels and behaves to suit your preferences, and will launch in 24 countries on November 4, 2019.

As with the previous Xbox Elite Wireless Controller, the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 won't be cheap – with a price tag of $179.99 (around £140, AU$250).
