While not exactly new to Windows 11, Microsoft promises that the new iteration of Windows, which includes next-gen Xbox controllers, the Xbox Adaptive Controller, and of course a wide-ranging third, "will continue to have the widest hardware support in the world." -party game peripherals.

Xbox App and Game Pass

Microsoft also continues to push its software, subscription and streaming goals with Windows 11 with the built-in Xbox app as part of the regular software package.
