XCOM 2 will be compatible with the Steam Controller at launch

Power A's Xbox One Star Wars controllers are nifty looking

Windows 7 now supports the Xbox One wireless controller adapter

The Xbox One Elite controller will be in low supply this month

Sony's PS4 media remote is a gigantic monolith of a device
