    XBOX 360 controller not detected in games played in XBOX(beta) for Windows 10


    Hi,

    I've been trying the XBOX (beta) application for Windows 10, also subscribed to the game pass. I've downloaded 3 games but in none of them my XBOX 360 controller seems not to be detected at all. The controller is working perfectly fine in my Steam games
    and my Origin games.

    Is this a know issue ? Does it require an XBOX one controller ?

    Thank you for any help.

    :)

    How do you have the Xbox 360 controller connected? If it is a wired controller, or connected via a 360 wireless connector, it should function normally, recognized as an XInput.

    What are the three games that you have tried? It might be game specific not detecting and we'll have to investigate, since it is working for other games, and thus recognized correctly by the OS.

    Thank you for your answer. I'm using a wireless controller.

    The 3 games are:

    • Metro Exodus
    • Middle-earth: Shadow of War
    • ReCore
    When I click in the XBOX button of the controller, the battery level is displayed on the screen in a tiny Window.

    In Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers, the Xbox Wireless Controller appears and in the Game Controller Settings (in its contextual menu), every button is working fine.

    sadly, not all games use XInput, what game are you having issues with?

    How to set up an Xbox 360 Controller for Windows

    Set up a wired controller on Windows 10

    Follow these steps to install your Xbox 360 wired controller on Windows 10:

    1. Plug the Xbox 360 controller into any USB 2.0 or 3.0 port on the computer.
    2. Windows 10 will automatically install drivers for your controller, so you won't have to download or install software other than Windows 10 updates. Once you see the pop-up notification that the drivers have been installed, you can use your controller.
    3. Open a game or the Xbox app and test your controller by pressing a button, pulling a trigger, or moving a stick on the controller.
    Notes

    • If your Xbox 360 wired controller is not detected by your PC, try plugging it into a different USB port, and then test it again.
    • If your controller still does not work, check that Windows 10 is fully updated. Install any updates and then try again.
    • Refer to your game documentation for information about how to configure the Xbox 360 controller for a specific game
