Xbox and Playstation Controller Support Coming To Apple TV

Apple announced toady at its annual developers conference that Xbox One and PS4 controller support will be coming to the Apple TV later this year, with an update to tvOS.

Many game developers have long bemoaned the lack of good, easily accessible controller support on the platform. This new capability is the best thing to happen for tvOS games since the rule forcing developers to support the Siri Remote was scrapped a couple of years ago, and may prove a boon for quality games on the system.

UPDATE: These controllers will also be supported on iPhone and iPad with iOS 13.
