Will the X1 controller become the standard like the 360 when it comes to PC ?

By standard I mean most use the 360 pad with their modern PC games cause alot of devs included plug & play support for it in there games from about 2005 till now. Will the devs continue to use the 360 as the default template or will they migrate over to the X1 pad or maybe the PS4. I want to know cause I kinda wanted to get another 360 pad as a backup now before they stop making them, or if I should get just a X1 control down the road.

Isn't the button layout pretty much the same? I don't see them changing it all that much. I doubt the 360 controller will be obsolete anyway.

Well I know microsoft already released drivers for the x1 controller to make it essentially work as the 360 does on pc. It's supposed to work with everything the 360 controller did but I've heard people say they've had trouble with it on certain games.

I honestly prefer the 360 Controller over the X1, and lately I've been loving the PS4 controller so...I don't know, I'm conflicted.

I'm hoping devs start adding in support for the PS4 controller along with the normal 360 controller (face it, X1 controller is nearly identical in function except for rumble triggers).

There also needs to be official drivers for the PS4 that allows you to toggle between xinput and whatever the PS4 is (direct input maybe?). I'm currently using DS4Windows and after turning the computer on from hibernation, the controller either won't function properly or it completely lags the computer to the point I have to restart via power button.

Nah, it will be the Steam controller when it comes out.

I'll still emulate 360 controller and curse lazy developers who only add support for one controller.

The X1 controller has already come to the PC. Official drivers were released on June 5.

It's already the standard, or rather it follows the same standard that was set when the 360 controller was released. They're both x-input controllers, if one works for a game you can rest assured that the other is 100% compatible as well.

I have no idea what dumb standard the controllers have gone through.

There should never have been anything special to it. There is no reason for the xbox one controller to not work everywhere the 360 controller does, except pure incompetence.
