Xbox Series X Controller Update: Specs, Patents and more

With fans around the world itching for any and all information on Xbox Series X, Windows Latest has shared some interesting developments regarding the new Xbox Series X controllers.

A patent was published about a thumb-stick with an 'adjustable tensioning mechanism'.

BLUEPRINT FOR SUCCESS: A controller image included in the published patent

What this essentially means, is that players may be able to customise how ridged or loose the thumbstick is.

This may not be a factor to more casual gamers, but for those who prefer to fine-tune their controllers, this is right up their street.
