Microsoft is bringing its Xbox Elite 2 controllers to the company’s Xbox Design Lab today. You can now order a custom color variant of the Xbox Elite 2 starting at $149.99, with options to buy and personalize separately Elite Accessory Packs or buy all Elite components with the controller for $209.99.
There are several colors to choose from and most of the external parts of the controller can be customized. That includes the body, back case, D-pad, bumpers, triggers, thumbsticks and buttons. “You can even choose between a cross-shaped or faceted D-pad, and for the first time in Xbox Design Lab, you can color-customize the thumbstick base and ring,” explains Microsoft in a blog post. You can also customize the colors on the paddles, the zipper of the carrying case and the Xbox logo and there is an option to add a laser engraving.
Microsoft admits that “the main request from fans has been to include Elite controllers” in its Xbox Design Lab, and the company originally announced the plans last month alongside its more affordable Xbox Elite 2 Core controller. The Core model costs $129.99 but does not come with interchangeable components. These must be purchased separately.
Microsoft has gradually improved its Xbox Design Lab over the years, with a recent update adding new pastel colors — soft pink, orange, green, and purple — as well as new Camo Top cases with matching side covers. Xbox Design Lab also offers metal finishes and rubber grips and allows players to customize just about every part of a regular Xbox controller.
The Xbox Elite 2 custom Xbox Design Lab controllers are: available today in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, most Western European countries, and certain Southeast Asian countries.
