Update: the controller now needs a software update and will no longer connect to the Xbox One without one. BUT, it has to be connected to the Xbox to get an update and the cable we have for the previous controller does not fit this controller. Not as compatible with the Xbox One as they make out unless you buy the extras too.
The controller hasn't worked at all in the seven games I've tried so far. Button presses are not logged and I can't even get out of the game menus. Even more annoyingly, in FIFA 20, when accessing controller settings menu (using the keyboard), it constantly cycles through all the options as though I was pressing 'down' on the arrow pad.
How on Earth did Microsoft manage to release a controller for PC that doesn't work in any game for PC on the latest Microsoft Windows version, fully updated? I was burned with Microsoft with their red ring of death on the Xbox 360 and as a result, I haven't bought any games hardware from them since. This latest shambles does not fill me with confidence. I'll wait a couple of weeks to see if Microsoft release any fixes, if not it is going back to Amazon.
Will let you know how the replacement compares

A proverb that applies very much to this controller, at first it looks almost indistinguishable from the xbox one s.
The feel of it is much different though.
The back isn't smooth like the previous pad, it has a raised textured surface that make it easier to keep a grip on the controller. If like me your hands sweat after a few hours of gaming this is a godsend.
The d pad is the other big change.
Its very clicky and precise when it comes to inputs, I play allot of MAME and fighting games like street fighter and tekken and inputs like quarter circles are easy with this pad
I use this pad on a Windows 10 pc and as far as connection goes i use an official Xbox wireless adapter.
It connected instantly just like the xbox one s controller did so I can't comment on the connection problems other people are facing with Bluetooth.
