Just need bluetooth, I'd love to be able to use my elite wirelessly with my laptop.
Considering the new base controller revs feature Bluetooth now I’d say your odds are pretty good. The OG elite controller was designed before the new base controller spec so I’m sure the new one will carry over the revs in addition to anything new that it brings.
I want to be able to use it with my wireless Headset
Really the only thing I would like to see change is the stiffness of the control sticks springs. A little more resistance against the sticks I think would give the smoothness a boost. Outside of that, MS needs better support for its win10 app to adjust mapping. They need to take a look a re-wasd and incorporate some of its features into their app. I mean I gave $150 for the controller, I should not have to invest another $10-$15 for a proper app for remapping. (I only use my elite for pc gaming)
I didn’t know about re-wasd. I’ll have to check that out. But you are right....this should be native functionality
The ability to map the paddles to keyboard keys or macros. Add that and Bluetooth and poof....best controller ever made is even better
Anybody know the release date of this thing?
It hasn't even been officially announced yet, just based on rumors so far and a listing.
