Microsoft will finally let you change your Xbox One controller mapping

A gift for the less dexterous among us

Finally, Microsoft is letting gamers remap buttons on Xbox One controllers. Microsoft's Mike Ybarra Tweeted the news, and that it will be happening soon.

It's good news for gamers as previously, anyone who wanted the feature had to buy the Xbox One Elite controller (US$150, ouch).

Sony's controller already has remapping, which it added in a recent software update.

While the Xbox controller is noted for its comfort and more ergonomic design, sometimes it does make sense to change certain buttons around especially for those with stiffer hands who might find a certain setup more comfortable or convenient. No word about when it's going to happen exactly, as all Ybarra said about when it would come was "soon".
