Microsoft confirms configuration functionality won't be exclusive to Elite gamepad

Remappable buttons coming to all Xbox One controllers

Xbox One’s Elite controller won’t be the console’s only remappable peripheral for long, Microsoft has confirmed.

The firm’s director of program management Mike Ybarra explained on Twitter that configuration options are “coming for all controllers soon.”

The Xbox One Elite controller will carry features and customization options beyond button remapping, which is largely why it costs $90 more than the hardware’s standard line of controllers. It launches on October 27th, alongside the release of Halo 5: Guardians.

Ybarra didn’t mention when Microsoft specifically plans to add configuration support for all Xbox One controllers. The new Xbox One Experience is scheduled to arrive in November, packing a new user interface and Xbox 360 backwards compatibility.
