    Which controllers can I use on my Xbox 360?


    I would like to know if it's possible to use newer Xbox controllers on an Xbox 360 (cabled or not), and I'm talking about:

    • Xbox One Wireless controller
    • Xbox One (Bluetooth) controller (rev 1,2)
    • Xbox Series controller

    Thanks in advance

    :)

    Which controllers can I use on my Xbox 360?

    Hi,

    none of them are compatible with the Xbox 360.

    Only the 360 cable or wireless controllers or 3rd party controllers for the 360 (wich I wouldn't recommend cause of bad quality) do work with the Xbox 360.



    Btw many PC players are still using 360 pads cause they like them more than newer ones !

    Connecting an Xbox 360 controller to an Xbox One X for split screen play

    I want to play an Xbox 360 game with split-screen on my Xbox One X. For the primary account signed in, I can use the wireless Xbox One controller that came with my Xbox One X. But I would like a guest to be able to use one of my Xbox 360 controllers, as
    I only have one Xbox One controller. I have a 3rd party (USB) wired and other official wireless Xbox 360 controllers.

    I tried using both of these Xbox 360 controllers to try and connect to the Xbox One X using the sync feature but none of them connected. The lights on the Xbox 360 controllers just flash infinitely.

    I did hear that Xbox 360 controllers are not compatible with Xbox One’s but does this apply to the Xbox One X as well?

    I also tried using the stream Xbox → Windows 10 feature and plugged in my 3rd party USB Xbox 360 controller to my PC which did connect to my Xbox though streaming, however it kept overriding my Xbox One controller by connecting as player 1. I
    need it so one of them is player 1 and the other as player 2 so two of us can play split screen.

    Is this at all possible, using an Xbox One and Xbox 360 controller?

    Thanks.
    Maybe you can achieve this using console streaming to PC and connecting both controller to your PC, so the PC have 2 different controllers plugged in and you can use with 2 different player.

    As additional info, every Xbox One wireless controller can work as a wired one using a simple USB cable.

    Xbox 360 Controller does not work on my PC ?

    I am guessing the controller is a wired controller as the Wireless controller with Wireless PC adapter comes with drivers on a DVD in the box which work with Windows 8 (I use them myself).

    As mentioned earlier by IceStorm III, a wireless controller with a Play and Charge kit won't work as that play and charge kit only carries power to charge/run a wireless controller with your Xbox 360.

    If it is indeed a wired Xbox 360 controller you are trying to use with Windows 8 you can use the Windows 7 drivers which you can download here:

    I suggest you to set the parental controls for that console. The Xbox 360 console lets you customize and manage your family's access to games, movies, and television content. The Xbox 360 parental controls can be used to control both the console itself and
    access to content on Xbox Live, including:

    Which games can be played.

    Which movies and TV shows can be watched.

    How long each family member can use the console on a daily or weekly basis.

    Whether or not a family member can access Xbox Live.

    For step by step instructions check this link:

    Xbox one

    That would be almost impossible for these few reasons:

    1: The wireless format on the 360 and Xbox One are different (Xbox One uses blutooth 360 doesn't)

    2: The 360 controller can be plugged in using a USB cable, but that just charges it, it doesn't send the data through the wire.

    The only way that we could use 360 controllers on the Xbox One would be a hardware redesign or a system update which would only allow the wired 360 controller (not wireless 360 plugged in, I mean the purely wired 360 controller)
