Xbox One: Get Ready, Get Set, Remap

xbox-oneAt long last, Xbox One controller remapping has arrived.

Xbox One owners now have the ability to remap buttons on the standard Xbox One controller. After the firmware update, the feature will be available through the Xbox Accessories app. Button remapping will be done in pairs according to Major Nelson. So that means if you change the “A” button to the “B” button location then ‘B” will go to the “A” button location; essentially, they swap.

Major Nelson goes on to say, “You can do multiple button swaps in sequence to move button commands to where you want them to be on the controller. When buttons are remapped on a standard controller, the remapping is not transferrable to other consoles. In other words, if you move to another console, you’ll need to go through the remapping process again with that new console. Remapping is available for both first party wireless and third party wired controllers.”

Currently, button remapping is only available for the Xbox One, but according to Major Nelson, Microsoft is in the process of adding PC support. For that, no official date has been released as of yet.
