After being on the market for roughly two years, and only mainly seeing enhancements by means of hard drive storage capacity, Microsoft has announced their newest model console, which they claim to be "the ultimate gaming experience." This new bundle comes equipped with the fully-customizable Elite Controller, but also sports a 1TB solid state hybrid hard drive, or SSHD for short.

Players can expect to get into the action of their games up to 20 percent faster with the new energy-saving mode, which utilizes the consoles SSHD to optimize system performance, as well as storing frequently accessed files, thus, providing a more rapid power up process. Also included in this bundle is something you've most likely already seen or heard about, the Xbox One Elite Controller. Coming with a kit of differing analog sticks, hair trigger locks, and interchangeable paddles for the back, it can be outfitted to adapt to your personal gaming style.


Microsoft also announced a "Lunar White" version of the standard Xbox One controller, boasting a mainly white color scheme with gold and black accents, coming onto the market in late September at a price tag of $65. In addition to this, the Xbox One Elite bundle will be hitting stores worldwide sometime in November, available for $500 in the US, or £400 for buyers in the UK. The Elite controller will be available on it's own in October, for the standalone price of $150.

I saw this a few days ago. It doesn't seem like that big of an upgrade to me.

When you can get a SSHD for ~$60 is not even a big deal.

Exactly, it's not worth it in my opinion. I'd rather get the Halo 5 Xbox One.

I wish I could trade mine in too but GameStop will only give me $200 for it. That's not worth it in my opinion so I guess I'll just be stuck with 2 Xbox Ones which I don't mind.

Or maybe just flip it on craigs list, thats where I just bought mine lol.
I'll look into those but I'm thinking having 2 will be better in the long run. I could just mod my original one eventually. I'm undecided though still.

I'm not sure where you read that it will be slim, but they haven't said anything about a slim console.
I would rather pick up the Halo 5 console, and am still attempting to save money for it. I have 100 towards it and plan on selling my current one and wii u to get the rest of the money.

Would like to see a massive price drop on the new "old" consoles considering the elite controller is 150 by itself.

Does this come with kinect?

I know it's not the slim. I said that I am just excited for the slim not this elite console.
