    Hello hello.

    Bit of an odd one this. Have updated Windows and now Xcloud Gaming Effort doesn't recognise the X360 controller. Locally-installed games are fine, but the browser-based jobbies say No.

    Has anyone else found this/got a workaround?

    EDIT: Seems to be an Edge issue. Didn't work in Firefox either but is fine in Brave (although the overall experience is not as good as when Edge is working properly). This fairly recent link seems to outline a similar issue albeit with a different pad and they also had results in a different browser.

    Might see if I can find a way to report the issue but other than updating Windows the other day, I don't remember updating the Xbox app or Edge itself. Suppose it's now just a case of waiting for the bug to be fixed.

    Bit of a bump but still having no luck with the 360 controller on Xcloud. Is anyone else having this same issue?

    EDIT: Seems that they are:

    Edge not recognising controller : xcloud (reddit.com)

    Edge Update issue? : xcloud (reddit.com)

    I've also tried a separate 360 controller on a separate PC and same happens. The newer Bluetooth controllers are detected fine though. Conclusion: Edge is newly stuffed for the time being as far as cloud gaming with a wireless 360 pad is concerned.
