The new version of the Xbox One Wireless Controller and Play & Charge Kit has been released in the United States region. If you are interested, you can buy the first-party accessory set from Amazon with this link.
The new version of the Xbox One Wireless Controller and Play & Charge Kit comes with the revised gamepad. For the uninformed, Microsoft decided to replaced the original controller with an updated one that includes a 3.5mm stereo headset jack so you no longer need an adapter in order to use Xbox 360 headsets. Gamers will also be able to adjust the headset volume, mic monitoring in addition to the chat and game audio by using the Settings menu of the Xbox One.
The other improvements include better bumpers, wireless firmware update as well as an enhanced audio quality with higher maximum volume. So, if you are planning on getting the updated controller, you should check out the new version of the above-mentioned bundle.
If you haven’t heard already, Microsoft is also planning to release another gamepad, called the Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller, later this fall. This expensive product comes with multiple customization options, including being able to swap the analog sticks with directional pad in addition to using paddles.
