This Dongle Adds the PlayStation 4’s Best Feature to the Xbox One

Device claims to let you use Sony's DualShock 4 controller with Microsoft's Xbox One.

You managed to procure a shiny new Xbox One, you’re not looking back (or in the other direction at those other, lesser systems), you’re perfectly delighted with Microsoft’s revamped controller, and yet…that PS4 dual-thingamajig sure looks tempting, no? Wouldn’t it be swell if you could use Sony’s new touch-sensitive, luminescent gamepad with the Xbox One, you know, just as an option?

This dongle may answer your guilty prayers and then some: CronusMAX claims to let you use an old Xbox 360 controller as well as Sony’s DualShock 3 or 4, a PS3 or Xbox 360 joystick, a Wii U Pro controller or Wiimote, or a keyboard and mouse with the Xbox One.

The Xbox enthusiasts at Team Xecuter are a little grumpy about anyone calling this a mod, for understandable reasons: modding usually means fiddling with the system itself, which can void your warranty. This actually lives between your gamepad and console, though CronuxMax isn’t helping by describing the part in a bullet point with the words “fully modded controller.” But whatever, we’re fussing over semantics, so long as no actual modding’s occurring. Call it a Programmable Intermediary Whatchamacallit for all I care — the point is, it reportedly lets you do stuff you couldn’t before, and might actually want to.

It’ll cost a fair bit, of course — $60 from any of the partner retailers — and there’s reason to be concerned a patch could nerf (temporarily or otherwise) compatibility. But if you’re a gambler, it looks like there’s a new game in town.

You will need an adapter to use your Turtle Beach or ASTRO Headset with your new xbox one gaming system!

Find out more here! Got mine and it works great! Now I can use my upgraded headset with no problem!

The Playstation controllers have always been better than the huge Xbox pads in my opinion.  Clearly someone agrees becasue they took time to make this device whilst nobody has needed to bother making one for the PS3 to use a Xbox pad, as there is no demand

It really will be a pc console if I can use my keyboard and mouse.

Microsoft has the better controller. This dongle makes no sense. I don't think this will sell well.

Huh. I haven't touched an XBone or PS4 yet, but I've always been of the opinion that Microsoft had the better controller. That's why I bought a 360 controller to use with my PC. I don't know why someone would want to use a PS4 controller on their XBone, other than really hardcore gamers who bought both and don't have any money left for another controller.

@JeremiahPerrine MS does not have the best controller. I own both consoles, and it really comes down to preference. I like the the XB1's non-slip joystickss, but I prefer the ergonomics of the PS4. If I had to pick, I'd choose the DS4. The difference between the PS3 and XB360 controller is a distant memory.

@ZakkSinurgeNo way is it superior.. you'll see in the coming months Xbox's integration with TV will far surpass any PS4 innovations.
