Major Nelson: Xbox will be coming to gamescom in Cologne, Germany this August and we'll be bringing a great line up of games from developers around the world.
They do this tease every couple of months before the controller announcement(s). I doubt it’s anything Xbox Two related.
my guess is Xbox Elite Controller 2.0
That would be awesome.
Oh damn it. I've just ordered an Xbox One X. This is probably a new model with 2TB!
That would be my guess, too.
Original Elite controller. It's the best controller. Period. It's brilliant to use. Fantastic bit of kit. It's also the worst controller. It costs a bunch, it WILL break and Microsoft will just tell you to buy a new one as they won't/can't fix it. Let's hope the updated Elite Controller is better built than the original. The materials were shoddy. It was less reliable than a standard controller but three times the price. Grips fell off, stick mechanisms wore out, D pads failed. Two of mine fell apart and I didn't even use them all that much. They were shocking.
An elite controller that is more reliable, fix the drift that can occur and better QC so that bumpers do not break and that the grips actually stay on without slowly peeling off. It is a great controller but there are very few people who have not had a fault after 12 + months of use. Many well before this. So Elite 2.0 is welcome if it addresses the range of issues from the first.
I bet the same.
probably controller without aa batteries
That already have that
The fanbase doesn’t want current battery tech in controllers. Won’t happen.
The fanbase loves choice and detest the short battery life thats in ds4,rechargeable batteries are better than replacing a whole controller imo
I really hate how quickly my ps4 controllers lose battery. I prefer the AA's for my Xbox controllers.
Can this be an xbox without disc drive? Cheapest version of xbox one x? Hope they do it. And regarding internal battery.... As long as they put the same grade of rechargeable battery from "play and charge kit" im fine. Its a premium product and needs premium life.
Kinect 3.0 It is time,John Connor
Is that the mid-gen upgrade to the Kinect 2.0?
Jajajaja, maybe elite control and headphones
It's the brand new KINECT!!!
Lame bro, the Kinect is dead.
WoW! -Owen Wilson
Xbox one x slim or also known as x1xs
It's pretty damn small as it is
It's already smaller than the S lol
"It's pretty damn small as it is" Thats why the "xs" stands for Extra Small. X1xtras-small (X1xs)
I don’t know how much smaller you want it to be.
USB-C charging? Please no. Please don't tell me that it has a built in battery and I can't use my own rechargeables.
I`m with you there. non changeable built in batteries sux
Having to buy chargeable batteries separately also sucks. Replaceable chargeable batteries included would be ideal
better would be replaceable rechargeable batteries. Then it's the best of both worlds. Seems like it'd be an easy enough thing to implement. Granted, I don't have a single controller that has needed a new battery...including the one that came with my launch PS3.
Neither have I. I would still rather have them included rather than have to buy rechargeables separately.
The play and charge kit from microsoft gives good battery life. I hope they shove it in the controller
Elite 2 controller is my guess
Xbox one x without disc drive is my guess
I think its an announcement of an upcoming slim version of the One X with a price cut, presumably $399; they need a price competitive to PS4 Pro at this point.
I mean you can't get much smaller than the One X already is so I highly doubt it. It's most likely a new controller, mouse and keyboard support or a special Forza Horizon Xbox console.
It's smaller than the S, so I don't think it will be say, PS4 Slim size, but a price cut to $399 would be ideal!
No way. A price cut less than a year after launch? There would be some pissed off One X owners out there.
All good arguments above. More specifically, I think its a new model to bring down price; they need to match PS4 Pro's price. Maybe instead introduce a 2TB model for the current price and price cut the current model to $399.
I think MS would have trouble matching PS4P's price simply because Sony still has plenty of room to perform a price drop. However, a $399 offering would make it more competitive, and it's a more palatable price for the average consumer.
The One X is already competitive with the Pro. Sony said one in ten PS4s sold since the launch of the PS4 Pro have been the Pro model. Information says that roughly one out of every eight Xbox Ones consist of the One X model. If that’s the truth the One X actually outsells the PS4 Pro. There’s actually a large possibility that there’s more Xbox One Xs out there versus PS4 Pro. I’d also point out that a price drop seems unlikely. Sony has yet to price drop the PS4 Pro and has been hesitant to include it in most sales. If Microsoft price drops the One X Sony would definitely have to evaluate a price drop on the Pro.
That would be true if the Xbox 1 sold as much as the ps4, but because ps4 sells 3 times as much sometimes just 2 times as much the Xbox 1 x would need to sell about 1 out of every 3 xbox1s sold.
What information talks about the make up of actual sales of different systems? Sony said 20% back when the PS4P launched, and hasn't mentioned a number other than total sales since. To my knowledge, MS hasn't mentioned percentages, or even actual Xbox sales numbers at all. If the numbers remained consistent all this time, there is no way the X1X would outsell the PS4P.
"Information says..." You don't have information.
A price drop is possible. But any redesign wouldnt happen in the first year.
Its fact that its elite controller 2
This is one of three things: New controllers, mouse and keyboard support or a special Forza Horizon 4 Xbox One X. It won't be a new console and it won't be a "slimmer" One X.
Its the new kinect four
Why would you ever add the word “Woah” in your title? Sounds silly.
Wasnt there already a new controller just announced the other week.
That was not the elite controller though I see it being that won't be a console change as the s is only 2 years old and the x is close to 1 year old.
Mouse+Keyboard .. and btw..I'm driving with DeLorean.
Only new thing you gonna get is a controller... as usual.
Sounds good to me
Remind me what the elite 2.0 controllers offer over the current version? I have 2 currently and never really felt they needed an update, I guess maybe ability to adjust tension on the thumbsticks might be one. But other than that 2 yrs later no issues/complaints, I'm just curious if I should just start selling these before they tank in value for a better model drops.
I think the biggest inclusion will be blutooth. Also likely allow you 3 settings instead of the 2 currently. Beyond that, not really sure.
Okay thanks, I don't even use the customize settings options, and bluetooth is irrelevant, money saved, inner crisis over feeling dated averted lol.
Did anyone even read the article.. it says "all-new Xbox hardware and accessories"
And a controller is hardware.
Reinstatement of DRM and always online!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Welcome the cloud as it engulfs your machine into.............the future!!!!!!;!!!!!!!!!!
Yet another new hand controller, whilst good, isn't going to get non xbox owners like myself interested in the system. If they were to announce new hardware that isn't widely available on other console platforms, such as full keyboard and mouse support or even an MRheadset with supporting titles to go alongside of them, then the xb division may be able to peek my interest.
I don't think the new controllers even the elite, are meant to drive system hardware sales. They're there to drive peripheral sales, which MS actually does make money on.
The Germans really don't like the xbox brand so this will be interesting, I should imagine MS selecting it's hardcore fans for the live audience, like they do every year at E3.
New elite controller please. No way they are announcing their gen9. Maybe next year for a 2020 release. Same as ps5 most likely. Always been that way.
Most likely the new Elite controller
It's an official keyboard and mouse. Check out jackfrags youtuber
Pogs? They're bringing back Pogs.
The X is incredibly small as it is
New Xb1 for 1080p 60fps. A console sitting between S and X , the E? Probably just a new controller tho.
