I had figured that Minecraft had native Xbox One controller support, but found that I was wrong (at least as of January 19, 2016).

I've found resources that indicate that Minecraft can be played using the Xbox 360 controller with some help from other programs, but I'm unaware of any programs that claim to work with the Xbox One controller:

  • You've seen the duplicate questions; I'm having trouble figuring out what exactly you're asking. Is it controller friendly? Software to make the controller work? Can you clarify? – Frank Jan 20 '16 at 0:38
  • @Frank specifically asking if it's compatible with the Xbox One controller, not the Xbox 360 controller. Both of the other questions are well over a year old, and a lot can change in that time frame, and both seem to give answers specifically for the 360 controller. – gkubed Jan 20 '16 at 0:40
  • Problem is, the question's already been asked. Whether it was a day go or a year ago, we still have to keep all the answers together. You're asking the same thing, so I've voted to close as a duplicate of the first question. Do the answers not work for you or something in that question? – Frank Jan 20 '16 at 0:43

    @Frank, you're right about the timing. I should have been more specific about the earlier questions. The possible duplicate you highlighted was asked before the Xbox One was released, so it must have been explicitly asking about the Xbox 360 controller, as specifying it being a 360 controller would add no further context. I'd suggest that it be edited. – gkubed Jan 20 '16 at 0:55
  • I'm...not seeing any reference to any XBox controller at all in the question. Are you? All I'm seeing is a general question about controller support, so it should be applicable to all controllers, XBox or otherwise. If you can get Windows to recognize it, then those answers should work for you, I believe. – Frank Jan 20 '16 at 1:01
