The latest issue of Famitsu Xbox reveals that Microsoft won’t offer a USB converter to let players use their current Xbox controllers on the 360. According to their source, Microsoft Product Development Chief Shinichi Manaka, Microsoft hasn’t even considered looking into the possibility.
In otherwords, they’d like you to buy a new set of controllers specifically for the Xbox 360. This comes as no surprise, considering Microsoft has touted the system for its wireless controller. With the purported hardware loss for every Xbox 360 console sold, it would be a good way to raise extra revenue.
