Free game = good price.

To the people telling others to buy a gaming PC and that paying this price for a controller is stupid, I take it you are playing pc games on a £5 supermarket keyboard/mouse and not an expensive Razer/Corsair/etc combo as by your logic they are all the same?

Good job there are so many Christmas sales on with a chance to buy a big winter coat. Brrrrrr

I honestly can’t understand the market for a controller priced so high... You can buy the console with a controller and games for cheaper. It makes more sense to switch to PC gaming, and play using a mouse and keyboard if it’s the competitive side of things that attract you to this

If you can afford to splash £160 on a controller, I don’t believe for a second that you can’t afford a gaming PC. They are probably at their cheapest they’ve ever been

First of all comparing a controller to a gaming pc is just silly... and mostly for the hair trigger locks.

It’s not silly at all, the main reason people buy these is for competitive gaming. If you are spending such high premiums for hardware, then it makes more sense to shift that spending, to where you get far more for your money.

I’m personally not interested in competitive gaming, however if I was I definitely wouldn’t be playing on a console...

Or it's for people who want to play competitively but enjoy using a controller more than a mouse and keyboard ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It doesn't have anything to do with being competitive gaming lol. It's just for people who want a better controller. This would be great for people on PC too if they don't mind that it doesn't have gyro.

So you’re telling me that the controller is worth £160? (More than the Xbox One S, controller and games)

Considering the issues from the Elite version 1, and no real long term guarantee these won’t suffer similar issues... It is a complete waste of money for anyone that isn’t an “elite” gamer. In which case, that “elite” gamer should really be on a PC (Just my opinion of course).

You tell me what makes this controller worth buying for a normal gamer?

I have every current gen console and a gaming PC, I have no interest in trolling this post. I’m just making a valid point at what a waste of money it is to spend £160 on a controller.
Currently the best deal for this if you can find stock, don't see a problem with someone wanting a superior controller, it's no different to upgrading anything else like pc components, car parts av equip etc.

Well your right about the controller being too expensive but you have specifically said that we should all play on pc and I for one wouldn’t buy this controller and can’t afford a decent gaming pc either! Glad your so rich to own everything!

Only the people who are happy to waste £160 on a controller for an Xbox. This indicates they have money to waste, which indicates they are very likely to realistically be able to afford a gaming PC.

My last gaming pc was a multi card water cooled desktop from scan. I only really play on Xbox now as that's what my friends use. I bought the elite controller because I like having a nice controller. I only play a couple of hours a week. My pc is updated but I probably won't buy another I'll buy the next xbox on release.
There's definitely a disconnect in the price. It's like what happened to the £70-80 market. MS went straight from £45 to £130+ without any consideration for the middle ground. I would love a more dynamic controller but not at those prices.

No, but strangely enough you can buy a high quality keyboard and mouse for less than half of this price.

They priced it in the same range as other premium controllers from scuff and Razer which this is at a minimum just as good.

The same reason people buy a TV for around £300 and then add a £400+ sound system to it.
It IMPROVS the experience.
Unless you have used one, you would not appreciate the difference.
I just wish someone out there would do a better discount

Just because it wouldn’t get you a high spec PC, doesn’t mean you would only get a low spec PC. With gaming PCs there is a much higher premium for the highest spec, however there is very competitive pricing for the technology in the middle. Which means you can pick up an extremely capable PC for £1000.

I have used one (the 1st gen version), which I got when there were sale prices on the elite console for like £160. That included the actual console, which is why it makes me laugh when anyone could consider £160 for a controller anything other than a waste of money. I sold the controller after using it and noticed absolutely no benefit to me... This site is about good value for money and saving money, this is the complete opposite of that.
I don't get how this is so cold. - I picked up this bundle today, Borderlands 3 is going to CEX and ill swap that for some PSVR games.

The controller itself is great. I own the Elite V1 and Elite V2. Unfortunately the V2 does have Sticky A button issue (which funny mine had a sticky RB which I got from Amazon). Amazon had no stock, so picked this up today and will return my fault one.

Controller for paddles and the fact FPS games you only press the triggers half of quarter of the way saves milliseconds which save deaths.

If you don't play FPS games a lot, don't buy it. But if you own an Xbox One X and you want a premium experience, buy it. It's the best offer at the moment. If you want to save money, trade borderlands 3 in to CEX to get it cheaper.
Wait this is just a controller
Great controller. Expensive but this deal is the best around. Hot
I bought this controller primarily for using on PC, I have the Elite V1 but this is better for PC gaming with the built in blutooth. I know this is an expensive controller but I have the spare cash and game a lot so wanted a premium controller. The Elite v1 has been a great controller so I'm sure this will be as well, selling my Elite v1 and Borderlands 3 so it's not much money for me to upgrade to the v2. Maybe not for everyone but this is the cheapest price available, are we not meant to vote hot for the deal rather than people just voting cold because it's an item they have no interest in?
Maybe have a read of this before you buy just yet?

reddit.com/r/x…ad/
Just got it for £149.99 on Amazon - son desperate for it so just spent all his Xmas money on it
I remember when the original elite controller was being sold for not much more than £100 with a game included at argos. I fully expect this to follow suit eventually

Yes but in all seriousness you would only use a controller if you’re a console gamer who owns a PC. No PC gamer would choose a controller over a keyboard and mouse
