New Microsoft Policy: Third-Party Xbox Controllers Will Be Blocked Soon

Many players have already reported a warning that appears in the form of error 0x82d60002. The message states that connected unauthorized accessories will be blocked:

The connected accessory is not authorized. Using unauthorized accessories will impair your gaming experience. For this reason, the use of an unauthorized accessory will be blocked on 11/12/2023. For return assistance, please visit the store or contact the manufacturer. To view authorized accessories, go to www.xbox.com/accessories (0x82d60002).

Sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans told WindowsCentral that the move could come as Microsoft expands its program for approved third-party Xbox wireless controllers. Most third-party Xbox controllers are wired these days.
