Xbox’s Elite Controller Series 2 will allow players to map Xbox functions to the device’s back paddles.
Announced by Xbox marketing manager James Shields, the new Elite revision will easily allow players to take snapshots of their games. With a tab of the controller’s back paddles, you’ll be able to easily take a screenshot or video.
With the controller’s three programmable modes, you’ll also be able to quickly move between set profiles. If your paddles are already in use, you can press a button to make them change function.
Elite Series 2 ProTip:
Elite Series 2 supports remapping buttons to Xbox system/voice commands such as 'record that', 'take a screenshot', and more. This pairs incredibly well with the Shift functionality.https://t.co/BDWPOAYJeC pic.twitter.com/mkkAUXknwZ
