    Perhaps someone can answer why Microsoft and other game companies don't bother to add third party usb controller support.

    please don't use a cliche answer like
    "because they want to monopolize on the profit of controllers"
    or "because it would make games have an unfair playing field"

    i honestly it would be great if there was third party controller support with custom button mapping.

    The only workaround i found is to
    console stream and plug a usb controller into a pc.

    Cause 3rd party controllers can often make use of turbo/rapid fire buttons.
    This isn't allowed as it's cheating.

    Seeing Playstation and Xbox is centered around multiplayer these days, everybody should have the same fair equipment which gives everybody an equal chance.
