Put down your controllers, because the console wars are finally over. To be fair, most people over the age of ten stopped arguing about which video game company was better years ago, but Xbox has just given us all a much-needed reminder that games are way more fun when we all enjoy them together.
A recent tweet from the official Xbox Game Pass Twitter account proudly shows off a young gamer enjoying Sea Of Thieves on a tablet, using a DualShock 4 controller. We absolutely love to see it.

Do you see what's in those hands?

The fact you can use a PlayStation controller to play Game Pass titles via xCloud isn't really the surprising part of all this - that's been possible since the online service launched - it's more that Game Pass is bigging this up as a feature in the first place. Sure, Xbox would probably rather you use an Xbox controller, but it's also happy for you to use whatever compatible device you have to hand. It's all love.
This is really just another great reminder that Xbox is doing great work in taking down the walls between petty console rivalries and creating something beautiful.
Whether its bringing Xbox Game Pass to pretty much any device with a screen, or allowing former exclusives like Ori And The Will Of The Wisps to come to Nintendo Switch, there's a level of unity and togetherness in video games right now that I didn't think we'd ever see when I was a kid attempting to argue that my GameCube was miles better than my mate's PlayStation 2 (an argument I regularly lost).
Fighting over consoles is absolutely something we've been less and less of lately - let's keep it going and leave it in the past once and for all.
