Do these leaked pics show Microsoft's new Xbox Elite controller?

New Xbox Elite Controller Leaked

Microsoft introduced the first Xbox Elite Wireless Controller at the E3 gaming conference nearly three years ago - and it could be about to announce a new version very soon.

It was also claimed that the new version will include a USB-C charging, three customization profiles, three-stage activation locks for the triggers, and improved travel for the reverse paddle buttons.

The original Duke controller isn't the only piece of hardware Microsoft has in store for us if new reports are to be believed.

The images appeared on the Chinese social website Baidu, and they're said to show a new Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller model, one that hasn't been officially announced yet. The new Elite Controller also has an adjustable stick tension mechanism.

Following the Baidu leak, an image was posted to Reddit depicting the entire controller. The battery that was reportedly coming with the next Elite controller was a rechargeable one, but players supposedly wouldn't be able to remove it as most Xbox controllers allow.

The current Xbox Elite controller costs £119.99, so we'd be surprised if a new model was any cheaper. Do any of you happen to have an Xbox Elite controller?

Tech site The Verge says a source "familiar with Microsoft's Xbox plans" has confirmed that the Reddit image is genuine.

As Engadget points out, Microsoft usually makes big gaming announcements during the annual E3 conference.

This is probably in response to Xbox users who have complained about the wearing-down of existing Elite controllers. At the current time Microsoft has not released any details on pricing or availability for the next generation Xbox Elite Wireless Controller. This year, E3 2018 will take place in Los Angeles, California and will run from June 12 until June 14.
