I’m looking into buying my first Xbox One stick…but I’m concerned with some things that I’ve read about backward compatibility issues with 360 games. Is it true that basically no stock stick can work with backward compatible games on the Xbox One? I keep reading something about a ridiculous decision made by Microsoft over driver restrictions that dissalows fightsticks to actually be read as controllers; as in, a factory TE2 can’t be used to play a backward compatible 360 fighting game, but a Xbox One controller can. I can link to articles, forum posts, and Reddit posts if needed.
But If this is true, I have the chance to buy a fightstick that’s been modded with a controller PCB from a PowerA mini Xbox One controller. I read that some people have gotten around the backward compatibility issue by modding their sticks with controller pcbs or by using something like a CronusMax.
Mainly looking into Street Fighter IV(hoping for ultra to be made compatible) and then to the future with Marvel vs Capcom Infinite. But do you think I would be ok for 360 compatibility with a controller pcb modded stick?
Thanks in advance…can’t wait to get back into fighting games, even if it’s just regular Street Fighter IV for now. Still angry at Capcom over Street Fighter V exclusivity, but what can you do?
