Add Xbox Elite Controller to Design Labs

Well at E3 we did see what the new feature added called Design Labs which helps build a controller of your desires. But, the Elite Controller should be added to the Design Labs so people that have gotten accustom to the Elite Contoller can have it custom made to there own desires. I hope to see if this is possible and this would please many people.

    Careful what you wish for- I got a design labs controller and it does not work with my chatpad for xbox one, despite not saying so upfront. It is shaped slightly differently and the chatpad does not fit it. It is loose and falls off, and will not turn on despite all firmware being updated etc. I don't recommend the design lab controllers unless/untill this is addressed. Who knows what other accessories do not work with them!

    Hopefully the bumpers are made out of a more durable material, can't wait to use a Bluetooth Elite with my Suface

    Please add USB-C (and Bluetooth 5!) to the Elite controller and Scorpio (with USB 3.1 support A/C ports as well)!!

    How amazing would this be. Although I don't know how many more elite controllers would sell because of this. I'd certainly consider it.

    Exactly !!!
    Elite controller should be released with Bluetooth compatibility and USB Type-C !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So in essence the people want the elite controller to have:
    1-Bluetooth support
    2-USB-C
    3-Addition to Design Labs
    4-Better Durability
    C'mon Xbox team make our Christmas a happy one

    With the focus on Windows 10 and xbox play anywhere it is a must for the Elite Controller to also support Bluetooth. A nice adition would being able to pair the device to two or three devices like Logitech does with their MultiDevice keyboard and mouse. This way it is easy to switch between using the controller with an xbox or you computer/phone/tablet.

    This.. please this. I want a green orange and purple monster looking controller and I'd needlessly spend my money on this crap hahaha #fanboyforlife >.>

    PFC Conners nailed it. I am waiting in the mail for my GOW elite controller, but if I could customize my own I'd pay $200 and I may not even go as hard as they did on the GOW elite controller. May just choose a solid color scheme and a game logo or etching. That would have to be cheaper than all of the customizing done on GOW controller.

    Please update page to include the following: Bluetooth support for computer play, USB type C instead of micro. Even if Bluetooth was integrated into elites today I would be convinced to buy one.

    I'd pick one up instantly. Only reason I'm waiting to create my own controller is because I think it's a no-brainer to allow us to customize elites. The GOW Elite controller is $200. I'd pay $200 for a personalized elite controller. Please make this happen!

    Brilliant idea. It would also be cool if we could upgrade it to have bluetooth like the Xbox One S controller

  • aliis1214aliis1214 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Love this idea, would also make the investment into the controller more personal for us.

  • pawncrackerspawncrackers commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I can see this coming, especially with high end IP like Gears of War and Halo. I'd like us to all be able to choose our own also - hopefully not too harsh on the price, mind you. Voted!
