According to a recent patent filing, the next Xbox One Elite controllers could have detachable triggers. This comes after the United States Patent and Trademark Office listed documents from Microsoft filed for a patent application for a “game controller with removal trigger accessory”. The patent was filed back in March.
The filing states..
“The present disclosure is directed to a customizable game controller that includes one or more differently configured trigger-type controls that can be swapped out in a tool-free manner.”
“For example, differently configured removable trigger accessories may have different sizes, materials, ranges of motion, spring tensions, pull weights, and/or finger positions. In one example, such a configuration facilitates the use of differently configured removable trigger accessories that are customized for particular types of video games.”
