HOTAS For Xbox One
If space/flight simulators ever do make it to Xbox One we're going to need the appropriate controller. It would be perfered if we could use our current PC HOTAS controllers and plug them into the Xbox One, but considering all the different models would need different drivers/firmware to work on Xbox One it would be understandable it couldn't happen. I'm sure mad catz could produce a decent one for the Xbox One...just make sure it's a HOTAS.
With all the space/flight sims already released and upcoming for Xbox One (Elite: Dangerous, Everspace, Ace Combat 7, CDF Starfighter), why is there still no HOTAS support? That's simply the most immersive way to experience a flight sim (especially combined with VR for on Scorpio).
Adding HOTAS support for Xbox One would be incredible.

I will make it plain and simple. The number one game that I play is Elite Dangerous. THE ONLY WAY I WILL BY A NEW SYSTEM IS IF IT HAS A HOTAS. Why because there are other options now, PS4 has a HOTAS and I now have a gaming rig.

I would buy a HOTAS setup in a light second. PS4 has HOTAS support but not Xbox one. How is that even remotely right? Just make it happen, that's all I'm asking from you Microsoft. Just think of money you can make by licensing the drivers to hardware producers. This is something that can really make the Xbox one stand out more then PS4. Tons of games, the ability to use a HOTAS setup and the use of mobile gaming via windows 10. I mean the check writes itself.

I'll stop asking for a simple wireless headset if I can have HOTAS support for playing Elite Dangerous on my XB1 instead.

Gets my vote a flight stick would be awesome
I own both an Xbox and a PS4 but play Elite on the Xbox. I would love if Microsoft could go ahead and certify someone's HOTAS for use on their Xbox One. I play Elite dangerous and I am disappointed that the Xbox cannot support one when the PS4 is version of elite dangerous will.
I'll bump this.
Needed for Elite Dangerous. Be a shames that the game has been out for over a year without HOTAS support and the PS4 version allegedly will get it.

This NEEDS to happen.
The 360 can but Xbox one can't?? Please sort this out!
As the PS4 will have Hotas support for Elite its the PS4 i will be buying. I play Elite on Pc but being able to just switch a console on and play straight away is what i need. So PS4 it will be. Microsoft you lose as it means my PC will then move to Linux instead of you horrible snooping Win10 software.
This needs to be done or bye bye Xbox and hello to a console from another company!
Don't for get to design a HOTAS that works for left handed players as well.
This needs to happen elite dangerous is horrible with controller and with ace combat 7 on the way we need one.
Come on windows 10 has generic drivers for my x52 so why cant the Xbox one it doesnt make sense.
Come on Microsoft it's like you are giving up on us of late .
Add my vote. Please, please please HOTAS support for the XBox One.

About time now. Seriously, I'm considering moving my gameing over to the enemy.
please add my vote to this thread that should not exist, have no words for the fact that there is no joystick support for XB1 for all this time but now with Sony announcing for PS4 it is becoming a joke, I have been a staunch Microsoft supporter but this is likely to be the final straw
With Acecombat on the horizon and other games like Elite Dangerous, Everspace... we could really use some HOTAS support its really a shame xbox gamers dont get this simple option.
Playstation 4 has just debuted a full HOTAS set up, yes flight stick and throttle for Elite Dangerous. How can Microsoft (who IS all that is PC) allow Sony to out do them in such a simple thing? All the current HOTAS systems work on Microsoft computers. ..you couldn't configure the xbox one to do the same? What, we have to wait for Scorpio on something you all already have the lead on? Now we have to sit back and let Sony leap ahead again? Really?
