If you wished that you could do a little more with the standard Xbox One controller, your wishes have been granted as Microsoft has announced an all-new controller called the Xbox Elite. From the front the controller may seem the same as your traditional Xbox gamepad, but flip it over and you'll see four new buttons the back. 

The additional set of buttons are customizable so you can remap them to any configuration you'd like and you can even customize and swap out the joysticks, buttons, and dpads to your preferred style. The new Xbox Elite controller is expected to hit store shelves this fall.
