Bleeding Edge TV 613: Gears of War Xbox One Elite Controller Review

As a follow-up to the Gears of War 4 custom Xbox One S console that I showed you the other day, here's a look at the limited edition Gears of War 4 Xbox One Elite Wireless controller! This is the very first custom Elite controller that Microsoft has released for the Xbox One, and as you can see, the design is super unique, and very much Gears of War-themed through and through. You get everything you'd find on the standard Elite controller, like the paddles on the back, removable thumbsticks and d-pad, and super-solid build. It costs $50 more than the regular Elite controller, and what you are paying for there is the Gears of War 4 design, because functionally  the two controllers are exactly the same. What do you think? Would you pick up a $200 Xbox controller?

Bleeding Edge TV 600: Xbox One S Review

The new Xbox One S is Microsoft's redesigned game console that brings 4K Blu-ray, 4K streaming, HDR gaming, and more to the Xbox One platform.

Microsoft announced the #XboxOneS back at E3 this past June, just three years after the release of the original Xbox One. It’s a revised version of the original Xbox One hardware that features a streamlined form factor. The S stands for Slim, and the Xbox One S is 40% smaller than its predecessor, and that’s even when including the power supply inside the Xbox One S, rather than requiring the large, bulky external power supply that the Xbox One needs in order to function. It also now supports HDR gaming, 4K HDR streaming, 4K HDR Blu-ray, and 4K upscaling of games.

You can pick up the Xbox One S now.
