Now the Xbox One Elite gamepad is even more customizable

In case the standard black and gray or the 'Gears of War 4' variant weren't your bag.

Sure, the Xbox One Elite gamepad is tailored to however you want to use it. But if you'd rather have a controller that wasn't the standard black and grey, you'd have to opt for the hideous Gears of War 4 edition's stylings. Thankfully, that's no longer the case. Over a year later, Microsoft and Scuf (hardware partner and purveyors of pro-level gamepads) are offering the controllers in a bevy of colors and patterns.

You can't go full Xbox Design Lab, but there are plenty of cosmetic options to choose from. Want a carbon fiber pattern for the body, blue and purple trim rings around the thumbstick pods, white face buttons and hot pink profile slider button? Have at it. You can get custom-designed thumbsticks, D-pads and lever setups as well.

Speaking of which, if you shelled out $150 for the gamepad before now, those control levers, thumbsticks and D-pads will be available for sale as well. You can even swap out the Elite's default sidewall grips, too. The controllers themselves start at $149, and the accessory packs range from $30 to $40 and will be available "soon."
