Backward compatibility for wired Xbox 360 controllers on Xbox One

Provide support for some Xbox 360 accessories like racing wheels and arcade sticks. These accessories are expensive and take space, we cannot be buying one for each generation of console.

    Microsoft promotes BC feature, yet makes restictions like that. Differenct controller clearly alters game experience because of different thumbsticks acceleration settings. Xbox 360 games were made with 360 controller support in mind, not xbox one controller. Right now people like me are forced to buy CronusMax in order to play xbox360 games on xbox X. Also it would be nice if MS would remove forced vsync to all x360 games, because this thing also alter game experience, it removes screen tearing at the expense of input lag.

    I made my own controller.
    it runs off an old two stroke Victa mower engine.
    It's a little noisy & the lounge room fills with smoke & fumes

    all I want from Xbox is an backwards compatibility with Xbox 360 controllers, or new controllers that are more durable while keeping most of the Xbox one controller features like 3.5 mm Jack and rumble motors in the triggers.

    I would love to be able to use my Xbox 360 wired guitar controllers with Rock Band 4. The Xplorer guitar for the 360 is the best Rock Band/Guitar Hero controller ever made.

    They've already made the wireless guitars from the 360 compatible with the use of an extra adapter. It seems silly that we can't use the wired ones.

    The control of the Xbox 360 is of better quality than that of xbox one that has several problems
    The texture of the analog always wears out
    control is fragile
    some come with defective factory Microsoft did not have quality control on their products?

    I wanna use my custom 360 controller which is just laying around gathering dust would love to use a USB wire and be able to plug in in to my XB1 this should have been done from the start?

    Come on Microsoft, you've gotta add backwards compatible arcade sticks/ fight sticks, especially for the wired one's that use USB. It shouldn't be too difficult to implement them, at the very least the USB arcade sticks and wired controller's.

    Now that Ultra Street Fighter IV and other fighters are backwards compatible and more games (Injustice 2, Tekken 7) are available, making the Xbox 360's fight sticks compatible is a big priority, especially given the relative vacuum of sticks for the Xbox One and Mad Catz going out of business.

    The old fight pads are a must for me with games like SF and KI. As ok as the Xbox one pad is it's poor for fighters. The old pads are USB so just a driver download please and away we go!
