Apple Is Now Selling Microsoft's Xbox One Controllers

It seems no retail stores carry it in stock at the moment.

4 Comments

With the release of Apple's new major software updates for Apple TV, Mac, iPad, and iPhone, the company has begun selling Microsoft's Xbox One controllers on its website. Strangely, there's no sign of the DualShock 4 controller right now.

Purchasing the Xbox One wireless controller sets you back $60 USD, the same price it typically costs at other retailers like Best Buy and GameStop. While The Verge reports that no Apple retail stores carry the controller in stock at the moment, nabbing it through Apple's website gives you the option of next-day shipping. It's worth noting that the Xbox One wireless controller is currently on sale at Amazon for $44 USD and comes with free one-day shipping.

Apple introduced gamepad support for both the DualShock 4 and the Xbox One wireless controllers with the launch of its major operating system updates. These include iOS 13 for iPhone, iPadOS for iPad, macOS Catalina for Mac, and tvOS 13 for Apple TV--all of which released in September except Catalina, which become available earlier this week. All software updates are free to download for most Apple devices.

These new software updates brought the inclusion of Apple Arcade, the company's subscription service that gives you access to hundreds of games for $5 USD a month. We compiled a list of some of the best games available on the platform right now. We also have an ongoing list of Arcade games available at launch and beyond. Apple has confirmed an assortment of publishers working on Arcade games, including Devolver Digital, Konami, Platinum Games, Sega, and many more.

This controller will also be compatible with next generation Xbox hardware as well.

I don't blame Microsoft for wanting to reach as wide a market as possible considering the the amount of time and money they put into R&D for their current gen hardware. Never mind they don't want everyone who bought a custom controller to have to shelve it when the new console comes out.

Stick an apple logo on it instead of the xbox symbol, and they'll gobble it up.

Surprised they didn't make their own controllers and charge $250 for them.
