The difference between the original Elite 2 and Elite 2 Core is that the “Core” model doesn’t come with the accessories to customize the controller or the carrying case. If you want the interchangeable components, you must purchase them separately. If you want all the accessories, the “Complete Component Pack” will cost you $59.99, which includes:

Carrying case. Charging dock. Classic thumbsticks (2). Tall thumbstick (1). Dome thumbstick (1). Cross-shaped D-pad (1). Set of four paddles: medium (2), mini (2). USB-C cable.

However, with the Xbox Elite 2 Core, you will get a controller with rubberized gripers, adjustable-tension thumbsticks, and shorter hair trigger locks. The controller also comes in white. Although the Core model seems more affordable, if you buy the accessories separately, you will spend around $10 more at the end since the existing Xbox Elite 2 will continue to be available for $179.99, and the Xbox Elite 2 Core with accessories costs $189.98. You can preorder the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 – Core for $129.99 today at the Microsoft Store. The company will start shipping the controller on September 21.
