The Elite controller comes packed with a more steel-based makeup so its a lot heavier than its predecessor. You have full customization of thumbstick sensitivity and levels of the controllers top triggers. There is also button remapping which is handled through a standalone app that will be released for Xbox One and Windows 10.

Your controller preferences will be stored in the cloud, however the gamepad itself can save 2 of your button setups.
