Microsoft shifts one million of those £129 Xbox One Elite controllers

Hey Big Spencer!

Microsoft's made its one millionth Xbox One Elite controller.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer tweeted a picture of the millionth Xbox One Elite controller, which carries a special inscription.

Now, we're not talking about a million sold, here. More likely, we're talking a million shipped. But big business tend to manufacture based on sales projections, so the special controller is doing well for itself.

And, given the things cost £129 a pop, it's an impressive milestone.

Microsoft announced the Xbox One Elite controller in 2015. Its most notable addition is its four removable paddles, which snap to the back of the controller. You can add up to four, numbered P1-4, and customise their usage via an Xbox One and Windows 10 app.

Digital Foundry compared the Xbox One Elite controller to the Razer Wildcat in a face-off published earlier this year.

The success of the Xbox One Elite controller makes you wonder: how come Sony hasn't come out with a PlayStation 4 DualShock Pro?
