Microsoft's New Xbox Controller with Dual-Programmable Touchpad Leaked Online

15 May 2018

However, it seems like Microsoft is set to change that as it is now working on a new gaming controller for its upcoming gaming console with a revamped design and a newer form factor.

A three-light LED seems to suggest that some of the functionality could be customizable, and a USB port on the side might make programming relatively easy for users. There's no indication whether the buttons are touch-sensitive or not. The only real question seems to be a matter of when Microsoft will unveil it although with E3 just around the corner, that seems the most likely venue.

Gaming is a great pastime, but there's no getting around the fact that most games require precise motor control which can present many difficulties for those not typically abled. A leaked image of the prototype popped up on Twitter thanks to WalkingCat, and Windows Central reports that it has heard the controller will likely be unveiled sometime at E3 or even before the big event.

Microsoft's game gifting feature was rolled out previous year, but it was only limited to the Xbox One users, allowing them to gift games to their friends. It's too early to tell for sure, though.

Coincidentally, in recent months, rumors have swirled regarding Microsoft working on a new iteration of the Xbox One Elite Controller.

If you have a friend or family member's birthday approaching soon and want to give them a game as a gift, you now have one more digital avenue to do so with.

Microsoft has promised this feature for a long time and previously made it possible to gift specific Xbox games to people you know and love.
