If You Want An Xbox One Elite Controller in the US, You Might Have to Buy Halo 5 as Well

The Xbox One Elite Controller is very, very hard to find in the United States, as demand has surpassed Microsoft’s estimations and there are widespread shortages all over the country.

If you really want one, though, there’s a way: GameStop currently has the controller in stock, but with a caveat. Basically, you have to buy it together with Halo 5: Guardians for $209.98.

Apparently the retailer  sniffed the business chance, and bundled up the hard-to-find controller with a game to get some more sales in. Don’t expect to save money either, as the price is exactly the combination of the price points of the two products, down to the last cent.

That said, if you really can’t do without an Xbox One Elite Controller before Microsoft manages to replenish the shelves, now you know where to look.
