xboxelitecontrollerMicrosoft today at the E3 video game convention unveiled a new Xbox One controller that features a number of new tweaks to the standard option.

Called the “Xbox Elite Wireless Controller,” the new device includes four paddle buttons on the back, along with swappable joysticks and directional pads. You’ll also be able to change the thumbstick sensitivity and trigger min/max values.

“Choose from a variety of thumbsticks, D-pads, and paddles for a tailored feel that provides game-changing accuracy and speed,” Microsoft notes.

The new controller works with Windows 10 and Xbox One. It will be available this fall, and prices have yet to be announced. Update: The controller will cost $149.99

Ars Techina notes that the controller will launch with an accompanying app that will allow gamers to create up to 255 custom button setups.

Earlier this month, Microsoft showed off an updated Xbox One controller with a 3.5mm jack to plug in a gaming headset — the controller announced today is a completely separate device. The company also announced today that the Xbox One will be able to play Xbox 360 games.
