Xbox Series X (as well as Series S) has a small button on the front of the console, located near the USB port . Although this is designed to combine the machine with the appropriate controller and dedicated accessories, it actually hides a second function.
According to what was stated by Major Nelson in century Larry Hryb , the button is also equipped with an infrared receiver , useful for using certain peripherals such as the remotes of old Xbox consoles.
The function, as mentioned, will allow users to use all the old accessories that support this technology: although it is hardly used frequently, it will allow gamers to take advantage of peripherals purchased for consoles already in their possession on the Xbox Series X (and its “little sister”) , without needing to acquire new dedicated products. A small convenience that underscores Microsoft’s commitment to supporting compatibility between different Xbox generations.
