Xbox One controllers are compatible with every Xbox Series X game, unlike DualShock 4 of PlayStation , which won’t be compatible with PS5 games.
The Redmond company has taken advantage of the announcement that DualShock is limited on PS5 to take advantage of its ecosystem.
We are in the midst of a battle for the new generation of consoles, and each time we begin to notice more. Both Sony and Microsoft save the price and release date charts. A cold war until today. Since the Redmond company have taken advantage of the announcement that the DualShock 4 will not be fully compatible with PS5 to go on the attack.

Sony has made the announcement that the DualShock 4 will not work with PS5 games. A fact that may make some sense, since Sony has put a lot on the benefits of DualSense, something that remains to be seen until we have the command in our hands. But that contrasts with the policy they have been practicing for some time at Microsoft, with an ecosystem in which both games and peripherals work perfectly.
That is why, from the official Xbox account in the UK, they have taken the opportunity to launch a message in which they have dropped, with elegance and irony, that all the Xbox family controls are compatible on the Xbox Series X, be they the official Xbox Controllers, the Elite ones, the Adaptives or even SCUFs.
As if that were not enough, Major Nelson did not want to pass up the opportunity to put his finger on it, and taking advantage of the content announcement for Halo Infinite, he has suggested that “we save our Xbox One controls”, since all of them will work in Xbox Series X.
It seems that now, when the arrival of PS5 and Xbox Series X to stores is approaching, companies are sharpening their knives to face their trade war for taking the video game throne.
