Microsoft is experimenting with prototypes of gamepads for smartphones and tablets.
Prototypes of Xbox gamepads for smartphones and tablets appeared on the Internet. They are attached to the sides of phones and tablets like the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con.
Users are interested in games with physical control, this explains the success of the Switch. In turn, Microsoft is trying to make an optimal folding gamepad, which will be less cumbersome than GameCase, GameVice and ION iCade mobile controllers.
Microsoft Research for the first time documented the prototypes of such controllers in October, and now the company has patented this idea.
Microsoft is likely to launch gamepads along with the xCloud gaming service. At the same time, the company is working on the Touch Adaptation Kit tool for xCloud. With it, developers will be able to adapt their games for touch control.
