Buy it from Amazon at this price and then take it to any Microsoft Store within 45 days to purchase a 3 year protection plan for $20! Just make sure to have the receipt and keep the box it comes in.

I feel a lot of value is added with the 3 year protection plan.
Thank you for this! The nearest Microsoft store to me is about an hour away, however I'll be driving by there soon. I'll definitely do this.

What do you do when you need a new one? Just return and rebuy or do they replace it for you in an even exchange?

If they have at same price, they do an even exchange. Otherwise purchase price back and then buy another if you wish.

Can you do the same buying from Costco?
Costco has this controller at the same price. You can just return it if it broke within a year, which is what happened with me with my older Elite controller(gotta love Costco). You can also buy a protection plan through SquareTrade. I did that too with my old Elite but of course ended up wasting it since I returned the controller after 9 months.

Still too expensive, first gen thumbstick broke on me right after warranty expired. Not going to spend over $120 for this controller ever again

The Series X controller seems to come with a "share" button...so I'm sure it'll be a little different...
That same button is already on the Elite Series 2, wouldn't take much except a setting to give it whatever functionality they add to button 3 in the future.

Some people enjoy nice things. The standard black one can be had for cheap if it's not for you. Same reason a pair of shoes can cost $5 or $500.

Have you considered googling the Elite v2 controller and comparing it to a stock Xbox controller and seeing the different features? Have you thought about watching a video discussing the product and it's uses to get a sense for why people buy it? Did it ever cross your mind to take any sort of independent action towards researching what makes this product cost $200, and why someone might want it?

If you use 3 camels or another price tracking tool, these numbers make sense.

What is hard to understand?

To wit:
The lowest price recorded outside of today's price drop was $169.99.
The item's current price is $179.99 (which drops to $159.99 at checkout).
The average price has fluctuated over 3 and 6 months near the current price.

($159.99 is not reflected in the price charts currently.)

A picture/chart reflects all this information without words!
So the lowest is 159.99 correct? That is this deal. But what you posted seems to mislead that 169.99 is the lowest

I have seen reports that Costco has started pushing back on returns on items over a year old. I think there are reports of such even on the forum here.

I would recommend waiting on purchasing this (unless money is not an issue). The reason is that even though this would certainly be compatible with the next gen XBox (series X), rumors suggest that next gen controllers might support some extra features - such rumble feedback at individual triggers.

I realize this is a minor feature, but assuming one would wish to keep a controller of this price for many years, might as well get one with the latest features available in that generation.

Of course, everyone's need and price sensitivity is different, so I don't mean to suggest it's not a good deal. Just that if it's not an urgent purchase for you, and if you are on the fence, might as well see what next gen brings. There will be a constant stream of spec/feature reveals during rest of the year. So you would know soon enough.
It's possible that this controller will also do all of those things with a firmware update. Assuming Microsoft had the hindsight to design it that way.

No offense. But do you even know what extra functions the Elite version gives you?

At least with regards to trigger specific rumble - that would need actuators built into each trigger. That's a hardware enabled feature, one that no controller in the market has. Not something that can be added via a firmware update.

Nothing to do with foresight on Microsoft's part. This series 2 controller is a 'current gen' controller. It's built based on features supported by this generation's games. Why would Microsoft spend money adding hardware to the controller that isn't supported by any game in the market today? That's kinda like expecting Sony to add touchpad to late gen PS3 controllers because they knew PS4 would support touchpads (I realize it's not a perfect analogy since Xbox series 2 controllers are expected to be compatible with next gen, but you get the point).
