    Xbox Series S controller suddenly freaking out on specific conditions.


    My controller has been freaking out in very specific parts of certain games. When I am playing Dirt 5 every once in a while in the "race select" screen the controller suddenly stop recognizing any buttons and forcing the analog stick to the last direction I moved, then after a few seconds it disconnects. I thought it was an issue with the game, but then I started playing Psychonauts 2 and it presented the exact same issue on the main lobby of the Motherlobe section of the game, but this time it doesn't disconnect and I have to remove the batteries to make it stop (since then I have been playing using a cable without batteries so when it freaks out it is easier to disconnect, just unplug the cable and plug again).

    I have played over a dozen games on my Series S so far, and this issue ONLY happens on those two specific occasions (I can play those games just fine when I am not on those parts of it), does anyone knows what could possibly be going on? I tried updating my controller but the issue is still happening.

    :)

    Hello, Bluelinkbr. Thanks for reaching out! My name is Lucas, and I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft user just like you. I'll be happy to assist you today.

    Since you already updated your controller, I'd first try to uninstall the games that are having this issue with the controller.

    Then, try to perform a power reset on your console:

    Power Reset:

    1. If you have an external HD, please unplug it and let it unplugged for testing purposes.

    ​​​2. Turn off your console by holding the Xbox button on the front of the console for approximately 10 seconds. The console will turn off. ​​​

    3. Unplug all the cables (power, HDMI, etc..) and wait 5 minutes.

    4. After 5 minutes, plug all the cables in again (except for the external HD) and then turn your console back on by pressing the Xbox button on the console.

    ​​​

    After that, clean local saved games:

    Press the Xbox Button > System > Settings > System > Storage > Clear local saved games (Note: Just do this if your saves are saved in the cloud, else they'll be lost)

    Now, try to install and play the games again and see if the controller works fine with them.

    How are you, mate?

    Does this controller say it works specifically with the Xbox Series S/X? This controller will also not work if something is in the console path.

    Did the xbox series controller works on xbox one fat?

    Xbox Series X|S controllers are fully compatible with the Xbox One, One S and One X. Also the Xbox One controllers work on the new Series consoles.

    Adaptador Windows para controle Xbox Series S/X

    Hello,

    There isn't a specific adaptor for the Series X/S controllers for PC. The current adaptor works just fine with these newer controllers, however it is now in very short supply. There are third party ones available that do the same thing.

    The Xbox 360 wireless controllers use a different WIFI protocol, they need their own Xbox 360 wireless Gaming Receiver.

    Xbox One and Series X/S controllers can be connected to PC via Bluetooth, but headsets will only work with the Xbox One adaptor (or a third party version), they won't work when the controller is connected via BT
