      Obtaining user input for a gaming console used to be a far simpler affair. Every user had exactly one controller and every controller looked like every other controller. With the advent of racing wheels, flight-sticks, Big-button gamepads, guitar-controllers, and other assorted specialty controllers, managing input has become decidedly more complex. This talk will cover the API that exists today on the Xbox 360 for acquiring input from the broad range of controllers. We will also explore the future of input API on the Xbox 360 and how it will be easier for games to identify and use these controllers more effectively.
