Xbox One Elite

The ultimate gaming experience, the Xbox One Elite Bundle, was unveiled Monday. In addition to a matte finish, the bundle includes a 1TB Solid State Hybrid Drive, which stores frequently accessed files on a solid state partition and optimizes system performance so you can get to the action up to 20 percent faster from energy-saving mode, writes Major Nelson.

Every Xbox One Elite Bundle comes with the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller, a new, performance-class controller to meet the needs of today’s competitive gamers on Xbox One and Windows 10. The controller offers “fully customizable features, interchangeable paddles, further customization with the Xbox Accessories app, Hair Trigger Locks and high-performance construction to provide an unparalleled experience every time you game,” Major Nelson says.

The Xbox One Elite Bundle will be available worldwide starting in November for $499. In the U.S., starting Tuesday, Nov. 3, the bundle will be exclusively available at GameStop and Microsoft Stores. You can pre-order yours today at GameStop.com and MicrosoftStore.com.

Also announced was the Xbox One Special Edition Lunar White Wireless Controller. This new controller includes all the updated features of the standard Xbox One Wireless Controller and adds a white and gold color scheme and improved grip texture for more control and comfort. In the U.S., the Xbox One Special Edition Lunar White Wireless Controller will be exclusively available at GameStop starting in late September for $64.99.
