New Xbox Elite Series 2 controller will be launching this holiday season for $129.99 and without the usual accessories like paddles, additional thumbstick and carrying case. 

Microsoft have announced a new version of the Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 for Xbox consoles and PC . The new Core controller comes in white and costs $129.99. 

So what makes this one cheaper than the standard Elite Series 2? Well, basically, Microsoft removed a bunch of accessories from the packaging to cut down the price. You only get the USB-C cable and thumbstick adjustment tool in the box. 

The standard Elite Series 2 controller comes with a bunch of additional accessories like paddles, a carrying case and thumbsticks among other things but it also costs $50 more.

Here's what you get with each version of the controller:
