What are you guys gonna do about the new Xbox 3rd party device ban

There hasn't been any necessarily planned as of yet. Considering the news was just announced and the accessory block has yet to even start, it would be difficult to know how exactly the system will work and if it is in fact going to be blocking the K2.


If that is the case and it does get blocked/detected, engineering would need to see if anything can be done firmware wise as not all things are fixable with a simple firmware update.


The K2 requires you to use genuine controller for controller authentication and it appears that the block is trying to block off 3rd party controllers (too soon to be 100% certain). While doing some research on how the report came to be, it stated that the error was first seen when using an after-market controller was given the error on their Xbox. As of now, we have been testing the K2, but have yet to receive any error.
