The rumor claims this wireless controller will launch as standard equipment along with the Xbox successor.
There is now a blossoming market for wireless peripherals for all three major consoles, and Microsoft has spotted this. The Xbox was lauded for having controller wires that were incredibly long, and now it seems they are prepared to go one better by making wireless controllers standard on the Xbox 2.
We at XA don’t believe the controller is likely to undergo any extensive change in size or shape from the Controller S design that is currently shipping, apart from this added wireless functionality.
Microsoft already has vast experience in developing wireless solutions as their extensive line of wireless mice and keyboard confirm.
Microsoft also offers Bluetooth wireless technology in its mouse and keyboard products.
