    Huh.. Now I'm wonder why this wasn't an option in the first place.

    :lol: Tha what? It was a standard feature in the Xbox 360 ;)

    Good to hear it's out across the board anyway! Still wouldn't mind one of those Elite controllers though, kid bro picked up an Elite console with one last weekend so I've had a try and ohhh yes...... I begrudge paying £50 for one though, never mind £130!
    Now then MS, what about the other big standard feature on the 360 eh - custom music?! Why are you making me play Forza 6 with that series-default in game bgm shite? Hell, even the PS4 has beaten you there, sort it out! (they apparently are, just not rushing to do it, grr!)

    That's pretty neat! I usually go with the default button layout in most games, since it was the way the developers thought it was supposed to be.
    There's just a few instances I really have to change the defualt buttons (on PC) like Morrowind and Oblivion, where E is Jump and Space is Interact.... :P

    I'll wait for the PC option then (I do have a xbone controller). Don't have a Xbone myself since I already have a PC that doesn't burst into flames when playing the witcher 3...or fallout 4. better be on the safe side of "it can run it" for me.

    Yeah only took a few more years than it should. Sure it would have been harder on the older consoles but it has been technically possible for many years on the PS360 at least.

    Now however I await the cheat or not discussions like some people insisted on having for the times I have done it on older consoles/games. In some ways I could almost buy the touchscreen dodging ones, though the tendency there to blather on about purity of vision of the devs tends to lose that one quickly.

    Well if its a system feature or part of the game's options, then it technically isn't cheating. However, using this feature has the same problem as remapping controls in the games that allow it, which is simply the fact that not everyone will remap the controls the same way you did, and presumably most gamers won't remap the controls at all.

    This announcement is kinda funny though since all Xbox owners immediate reaction will be "hmm, what should I change?" Some people might change something just for the heck of it.

    I'm wonder why this isn't already an option on every system like it should be.

    I agree, and things like macros, timed inputs and possibly even rapid fire would count as some variation on the theme of cheat (not that I have problems with much of that either). However remap which took some effort and was not available to all I can not consider cheating save for some very limited circumstances (the examples will be in some rhythm games and possibly things like track and field* but I will leave those to your imagination)


    *unrelated to this but a classic technique there was get your wallet, wrap it around your hands and be able to play where your friends had long since succumbed to finger pain.

    I picked up a Windows 10 wireless dongle and an Elite controller last week for use with my PC. The controller works fine, but I've noticed that the "impulse trigger" function isn't in windows. I've tried Titanfall and Fallout 4 which both supposedly support impulse triggers on the Xbox. I've also noticed that plugging a headphone into the bottom of the controller does nothing, the controller doesn't show up as a "playback device" in the windows sound settings.

    So far I am kinda disappointed with it honestly, there is no added functionality over the 360 controller. Nicer D-Pad though.

    Can this be set for specific games? I need this to fix the controls in Destiny.
