More recently, many players, as well as publications Windows Central And The Verge, noticed that Xbox began to notify about error 0x82d60002 due to unofficial accessories being connected. Microsoft confirmed this and clarified that it does indeed intend to block all unauthorized controllers and accessories “from third parties.” Of course, to ensure reliability, security and the best gaming experience on Xbox.
“Accessories from Microsoft and other licensed Xbox partners are designed and manufactured to quality standards that ensure performance, reliability and safety. Unauthorized accessories can disrupt the gaming experience on Xbox consoles (Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S), so players will now receive a pop-up warning that their accessory is not suitable. Ultimately, the unauthorized device will be blocked from use in order to preserve the console’s gaming capabilities.”
Microsoft’s new policy has not yet officially entered into force – device blocking will begin after November 17, 2023, as the authors clarified GamesIndustry. But already now some controllers may not connect to the set-top box. All licensed accessories presented here.
