On June 15, 2015, during its E3 2015 press conference, Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller, a new controller which Xbox division head Phil Spencer described as being “an elite controller for the elite gamer”.
The Elite Controller was released in October 2015 and was immediately in very short supply, and out of stock in many locations.
Now on twitter Phil Spencer announced that Microsoft has shipped a million of the $149.99 controller.
