Xbox Elite Series 2 Core wireless controller: Save $25 at Walmart


If you're buying a new Xbox Series X, an extra controller should also be on your shopping list. Though both Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S systems come with one or two controllers (depending the system you purchase), it's always good to have extra controllers on hand for multiplayer games.

The Xbox Elite Series 2 Core Controller is one of the best on the market, especially for hardcore players. It's incredibly grippy, with a long-lasting battery, adjustable triggers, and low latency connectivity that make it perfect for just about any game you want to play.

What's the newest Xbox console?

The newest Xbox consoles are the Xbox Series X and Series S. The fourth-generation gaming consoles were released in November 2020.

How do the different Xbox models compare?

The Xbox Series X is the highest powered Xbox console you can buy. The Series X offers a processor that provides 12 teraflops of processing power (compared to the four teraflops offered by the Series S). When it comes to resolution, the Series X offers true 4K graphics, while the Series S offers 1440p resolution. And the Series X includes an internal 4K UHD Blu-ray drive. 

The Series S, however is all digital, so all games need to be download and stored locally within the console's SSD drive (or on an external SSD drive that's sold separately). It has a smaller form factor than the Series X. It can still play all of the Xbox Series X games in your library, as well as those available by way of Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

Both versions offer up to 120fps (frames per second) graphics, support HDR and take advantage of Xbox Velocity Architecture. Both versions also offer 3D spatial audio with Dolby Atmos support. And the systems are downwards compatible, so you can play Xbox One, Xbox 360 or even original Xbox games on them.
