It's been a morning full of leaks for Xbox. Thanks to its lengthy legal battle with the FTC, we now know about a refreshed Xbox Series X design dubbed "Brooklin", as well as a new controller that might be on the way with precise haptics and modular thumbsticks.
While that's all very exciting hardware to look forward to, it seems one of Xbox's best controllers for playing Starfield has been given a Black Friday-level discount months before the event officially starts. The Xbox Elite Series 2 Core controller is now just $99.00 at Amazon in the US, bringing it down to a new historically low price.
Previously, we had seen the Elite Series 2 Core come down to around $102, and that was over Prime Day in the Summer. Remember, the Series 2 Core is the full-fat Elite Series 2, just without its extra attachments like thumbsticks and back paddles. You can still buy these separately and use them with the Core model though.
That means, if you wanted to get the metal replacement thumbsticks and component pack at the same time, you'd get the full Elite Series 2 package for a total of$117.99. Given that gamepad sits at a $170 ERP, this is an incredible chance to get one of the best Xbox Series X controllers, and even one of the best PC controllers, for so much cheaper.
Alternatively, if you don't need the official component pack and you just want some back paddles, you can grab this TOMSIN set which will work just fine since the button sockets are magnetic. This will only set you back $12.50 at Amazon, giving you the pro controller experience for $111.50
