Been hoping to scoop up an Xbox One Elite controller this holiday season? That opportunity might have gone out the window. The input device, priced at $149.99, has sold out just about everywhere.
Amazon has officially updated its listing for the controller, and it clearly indicates that it’s out of stock. They even tossed an extra section in regarding the future availability of the controller. Here’s how that reads.
Due to high customer demand, orders shipped from and sold by Amazon.com placed now are unlikely to be delivered until Spring 2016. Order now and we’ll notify you by email when we have an estimated delivery date for this item. Orders will be fulfilled in the order in which they are received.
The bold emphasis is actually theirs, not mine, suggesting exactly how frustrated some customers have been when contacting the retailer.
So, don’t expect to get your Elite controller until next spring. Some other shops and individuals are selling the device, though I’ve seen it marked up to nearly $300 on places like eBay. Yeah, no thanks, I’ll just wait.
