Me and my friend want to have a split screen thing in Minecraft but he has a Xbox 360 controller and we are playing in Xbox one. Can you play in Minecraft Xbox One with a Xbox 360 controller?

As per Xbox.com:

Q: Can I use my Xbox 360 wired/wireless controller, accessories (racing wheel, wireless headset, etc.), or power supply with Xbox One (or vice versa)?

A: No. Controllers and accessories that work with Xbox 360 won't work with Xbox One (and vice versa). Also, the power supply from the Xbox 360 does not connect to the Xbox One console, and it will not satisfy the new console's power requirements.


If you have a PC you can stream the game via the Xbox app. You can use a 360 controller to play streamed games. Note, you will need to use a wired 360 controller or use a wireless adaptor for the PC to recognise the controller.


No, because they're in different platforms. A 360 controller won't work for an Xbox One.

    "No, because they're different plataforms" isn't a good reason. You can buy a PS1, PS2, PS3 and PC compatible controller and it will work on all 3 consoles. One example is the Lifetech Gampead AngEvil (Sorry, there's no English version) Commented Jun 10, 2016 at 10:18

    Note: Xbone is short for Xbox One.
