    Can I Pair OUYA controllers with a XBOX360?

    Asking for a friend

    No really, he has a 360 without controllers and he would like to know if that works.
    So many games, so little time...

    I don't have a 360 to test, but I'd say probably not. The console requires controllers to use the Xinput interface (OUYA uses a modified HID interface), a proprietary 2.4 GHz wireless connection (OUYA uses Bluetooth), and it has proprietary DRM lockout, which OUYA's controllers would obviously lack.

    I believe there are pass-through adaptors to make USB HID and non-approved Xinput controllers work (for legacy arcade sticks etc.) but at best you'd still have to connect through USB.

    "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
    "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
    "You must be," said the Cat, "otherwise you wouldn't have come here."

    OUYA controllers are Bluetooth, XB360 controllers are proprietary wireless. So no cannot use OUYA controllers on a non Bluetooth device.
