Xbox Series X controller revealed

Better cross-device connectivity, easier sharing, and reduced latency

Posted on

Microsoft has revealed the details about the new controller that will launch alongside the Xbox Series X consoles.

The key focus for the new device is improved ergonomics for a wider range of people, better cross-device connectivity, easier sharing, and reduced latency.

The controller will also feature a new Share button. The new D-pad is about boosting performance and accessibility for all the ways people play. And a USB-C port allows gamers to play and charge with a modern cable.

There will be cross-compatibility between Xbox Series X and Xbox One consoles and controllers. They all work together with the same Xbox Wireless Radio. Gamers can also play on more devices including PC, Android, and iOS. Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE) will mean pairing to these devices is much easier. The new controller also remembers multiple devices so switching between them is more seamless.

There will be a tactile dot pattern on the triggers and bumpers, which provides grip to improve feel and performance during gameplay. A similar, yet more subtle pattern is on the grips. The D-pad, bumpers, and triggers now have a matte finish to maintain a smooth consistent feel.

More details can be found on the Xbox News Wire.

Xbox Series X is planned for launch Holiday 2020.
