The feature won’t be exclusive to the upcoming Elite controller.
Xbox One users won’t have to buy the upcoming Elite controller for remapping the buttons on their controller.
According to Microsoft director of program management Mike Ybarra on Twitter, “It’s coming for all controllers soon.” Of course there’s no set release date but we expect it to be after the launch of the Elite controller, perhaps when the New Xbox One Experience rolls around.
The Xbox One Elite controller will be releasing on October 27th for $150 and is meant as a highly premium option for serious gamers. Along with button remapping, it features a customizable D-pad and analog sticks, extra sensitive triggers and much more.
Currently button remapping is supported on the PlayStation 4’s DualShock 4 controller so it seems reasonable to assume that Microsoft will be adding the same to all of its controllers soon enough. Stay tuned for more information in the meantime and let us know what you think in the comments below.
