Spencer hints Xbox controllers could get future update

No VR accessories planned for Xbox

Phil Spencer talks Xbox controller upgrade

At the latest Kinda Funny Gamescast, Phil Spencer has hinted that a possible upgrade to the Xbox Series controllers could happen down the track, after giving praise to rival Sony’s PlayStation controllers.

“When I think about our hardware roadmap, and I really love the evolution of Liz Hamren’s team and the work that they’ve done” states Spencer.

“We’re definitely thinking about different kinds of devices that can bring more games to more places. There’s probably some work that we’ll do on the controller. I think Sony’s done a nice job with their controller and we kind of look at some of that and [think] there are things that we should go do”, he adds.

“But [we’re] probably not in the more bespoke accessories place right now,” he elaborates.


“We just look at what happens on Windows and other places and see if there’s a unique opportunity for us. Right now I don’t think there’s anything that’s obvious to me.”

There is it. No VR planned for Xbox consoles.
