A recent patent depicts a new Xbox controller outfitted with a built-in touchscreen that can be used to track and display a player’s performance in a particular video game. As shown in the diagrams included in the patent, this in-development gamepad can also save custom controller loadouts and connect to social media. All of these features are displayed using the touchscreen, and the patent mentions compatibility with external devices like mobile phones through an app of some kind.
Update 3/29: A previous version of this article erroneously attributed the patent filing to Microsoft. Turtle Beach filed the patent.
So.... a controller with a touchscreen, not touchpad like the 4/5 use. this hearkens back to the days of the WiiU or even DC VMU
Touchscreen controllers to take back to wii u pad interesting.
This patent isn't from MS but from Turtle Beach, the source didn't read the patent.
I can feel the battery life drain from these things from here
I don’t want battery life being consumed so I can have the ability to connect to social media or anything not to do with actually playing video games.
