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.
it would be great if you could connect the xbox 360 wired controller via the usb port

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 would like to use my wireless white 360 controller on my xbox one besides , I'm more use to 360 controllers than xbox one controllers .
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?

i would absolutely LOVE to use my xbox 360 wired tron controller again!!!!
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!
The wireless wheel is perfect for my casual gaming. Please make this happen !!
Cant you already dont you just plug in a chord
i want this for the game accessories like the guitars for guitar hero etc. then we can get the back compat for them
please bring back the 360 ontroller it was my favorite
The best idea
It would be amazing if MS made this possible. Even wireless with the dongle.
Honestly surprised this never happened. The Xbox One controller has loose analogue sticks and poor bumpers. The D-Pad however is a lot better.
