Titan One review: Play Xbox One with Playstation controllers and much more.

Titan One review by Paul Acevedo from! We really appreciated your effort and time spent reviewing our product!

Titan-One-Saturn-Pad-Xbox-OneA couple of months ago, we reported on a unique accessory from ConsoleTuner that allows gamers to play any of the four big systems (Xbox One and 360, Playstation 3 and 4) with controllers designed for other systems. I could imagine numerous potential uses: enhanced comfort from using the controller you like best, the ability to use expensive accessories like arcade sticks and racing wheels you already own for older systems, and much more.

At last I’ve picked up a Titan One and put it through its paces on my Xbox One and 360. With the diminutive USB adapter, I managed to play Halo: the Master Chief Collection with Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 controllers, Forza Horizon 2 with a Playstation 4 DualShock 4 controller, and even Killer Instinct with a USB Sega Saturn Pad for PC. Some of the Titan One functions have a bit of a learning curve, but our detailed review and hands-on video will show you how to get started with this must-have peripheral.

The Titan One hardware

Inside the Titan One box, you’ll find the Titan One itself, a brief instruction manual, and a very short mini-USB cable. The cable can be used to connect the Titan One to a PC in order to load it with controller profiles and scripts, update its firmware, and more.

The Titan One is a black USB device measuring about 2.75 x .75 x .5 inches (70 x 19 x 11.5 mm). The top of the device bears its logo, a small LED panel, and a button.

The LED displays one character at a time while the device is powered, though the character can alternate to represent two-character status messages. For example, when you first plug it in to your console, it will flash “A” and then “U” for “Authenticate”.

In combination with the button, the LED can be used to switch control profiles. The profile starts on zero (no set profile) by default. Users can store up to nine customized profiles, which must be installed through the free Gtuner Pro software before use. Once you have some profiles set up, just press the button to switch to them on your console.

You’ll find a full-size female USB port on one end of the Titan One. There you’ll plug in controllers for authentication or for use. The side of the Titan One also has a female mini-USB port for PC connectivity. We’ll describe console authentication and PC connectivity shortly.

225x87x1301be22f65985807972ffe89eddf697.jpg.pagespeed.ic.guXzfcBlzIDo you miss all the controller mods that you could get on the old gen consoles on your Next gen Xbox One or PS4? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could have controller mods without actually having to open up or send away your controller?

Well thanks to the guys over at ConsoleTuner you can do exactly that! You can have controller mods on a next gen console without actually having to open up or mod your controller. All the best controller mods right at your fingertips without actually voiding your warranty.

Who doesn’t want mods like “Rapid Fire, Anti-Recoil, Auto-Spot, Quick Shot, Drop Shot, Secondary Rapid Fire, Jump Shot, Auto Reload, and Easy Sprint”? Titan One is the perfect solution for no nonsense mods on Next gen consoles.

Another neat feature of this dongle is that it allows you to use virtually any controller on any video game console, for example you could use an Xbox 360 controller on a PS4, or an Xbox One controller on an Xbox 360. The Titan One even has support for keyboard and mouse for those who prefer that gaming style over console controllers.

Why all the hoopla? There’s a feature update John is keen to celebrate:

ConsoleTuner is proud to announce 3 new features and 2 new GamePacks for the Titan One device. These new features are part of their continued development and support of the Titan One device released earlier this year.

In case you didn’t know, the Titan One is a hybrid controller adapter that allows gamers complete control over their input devices (game pads, steering wheels, etc) on their favorite video game console (PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360). The Titan One allows gamers the ability to add mods (rapid fire, anti-recoil, auto reload, etc) to their OEM controller without voiding their warranty. CrossOver Controller Support, means you can use another console’s controller on your favorite console (Xbox 360 on Xbox One, PS4 on Xbox One, etc). Keyboard and Mouse, Button ReMapping, and Macro Support round out the basic features of this innovative, jack of all trades, device.

The new features released for Nov 2014 are as follows:

Visual Programming Interface – For the first time those who are not well suited to writing code can finally create their own custom mods and features for their controllers using a visual interface. By dragging and dropping blocks on to a blank canvas, the user can create simple and complex modifications visually without writing a single line of code. This code can also be tested and programmed on to one of the 9 Titan One memory slots for use in-game or shared with the community online with the click of a button.

Tournament Edition Firmware – This new firmware for the Titan One allows gamers the possibility to use their favorite controller in many local tournaments. This firmware disables all the available cheat (Macros, GamePacks, Scripts, etc) and only allows for CrossOver Controller Support and Button ReMapping. A “T” is prominently displayed on the LED readout to designate this firmware is being used.

Partial PS4 CrossOver Support – Until this feature was released the only way of using another controller on your PS4 console was to connect the Titan One to a PC or laptop. With this feature that is no longer necessary. Using this feature, you can now connect your controller directly to the Titan One and your console. There is a small limitation to this feature in that it requires the controller to be automatically reconnected every 10 minutes. This reconnection takes less than 1 second and will not interfere with most game play. When this occurs the game will pause and unpause on it’s own for less than 1 second while it reconnects. It’s this reason why it’s considered partial and not full support. Full support is being worked on and will be available as a free firmware update in the future.

Two New GamePacks have also been released:
  • Call of Duty Advanced Warfare
  • Blacklight Retribution

Both GamePacks are available now and of course are free to all Titan One owners.

Titan One Review: Boundaries Broken

ps4xbox-650x365Ever wanted to play your Playstation with an Xbox controller? Or give your Xbox a go with one of Nintendo’s finer D-Pads? Well, you might want to check out the Titan One. It’s an accessory that costs as much as an extra controller for current-gen systems that allows you to use non-standard controllers on a variety of systems, wired or in some cases wirelessly.

This may sound like blasphemy but the Titan One really does what it advertises once you get through setup, which takes a little longer than what you’d initially believe. Titan One plugs into your PC or consoles (Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, PC) and tricks whatever device its attached to into thinking its a first party controller. So you can play The Last of Us Remastered with an Xbox One controller or drift in Mario Kart 8 online with the Dual Shock 4.

As is, the Titan One is a really great accessory that is well worth the price of admission. It delivers on the promise of letting you use nearly whatever (recently made) controller of your preference on any console you want. So if you really hate the Dual Shock 3’s sticks and triggers now you can use an Xbox One controller to play all of your games. It would be nice if it supported multiple controllers for local play and the potential for online cheaters using the scripting engine doesn’t bode well for those who want to play on an even field. Still, its hard to argue with the price and core function of Titan One.

Its probably the best $60 you’ll spend on an accessory for years.

Titan One Review: Jack of all trades. 8.00 – Great!

Titan One review by Ken McKown from! Thank you for your time and effort in reviewing our product!

Just adding an useful information. The Titan One device is totally lag free, even when using Bluetooth technology. The Dualshock 3, Playstation Navigator, Wiimote, Wii U Pro will work without lag in wireless mode right out of the box. For Dualshock 4 we suggest enable the “InFrame Out“, “1ms Response” AND “BT DS4 Boost” settings for best results and no lag.


Controller preference has been a deciding factor on which console I buy games for more often than I care to admit. The Xbox 360 controller was near perfection, then along came the Dual Shock 4 and it almost re-invented the wheel. Still, there are certain genres of games I prefer to play with Microsoft’s offset stick layout. So many choices, so little compatibility. That is until now. I got to play around with the Titan One, a USB device that lets players use just about any controller on the new machines, and it is glorious. Playing Killer Instinct with a DS4, or Killzone with a 360 controller really changes the landscape.

It all feels like sorcery, especially when the PS button also works as the Xbox button. It feels unnatural. The best part about this for someone like me is that I can use all those fight sticks I bought for Xbox 360 on both of my new consoles. Killer Instinct and Injustice are so much slicker with a proper arcade controller.

etup is simple for the most part. The Titan One looks like an oversized USB stick, and once plugged in, snapping any controller into its USB slot matches it up with the system. There are some exceptions, for example the Xbox One does not like to play nice out of the gate. Instead I had to log in with my actual controller to make the system recognize the Titan One as a valid controller, then I could switch over to whatever I wanted. It isn’t ideal, but it does work.

Also, keyboard and mouse support works for consoles. Again through some magic and setup though. The Titan One has to be routed through a PC in order for it to work. The interface is easy to use though, and for anyone wanting to go that route, it does work.

Not only does the Titan One let players use any controller on any system (yes I hooked up a Wii remote to the Xbox One, no I don’t recommend it) but it also allows for controller modification. Think of it as having your own programmable controller. This means I could set macros, enable things like rapid fire, or download one of many scripts from the growing library on the Console Tuner website. Now, I don’t advocate using hacks for controllers in online games as I feel it is a mild form of cheating, but for certain offline objectives or repetitive motions, I find it perfectly viable and effective.

Loading scripts and mods into the Titan One is simple. The dongle comes with a USB cable that plugs into the PC. From here there is a piece of software that is used to dump them into the device. Then, once the controller is synched to the Titan One, simply tap the button on the device to switch between the available scripts. Simple and effective.

The Titan One is a very cool device that lets me decide which controller I want to use for which games. Adding fight stick support for my older sticks is a definite bonus. Console Tuner has done what Sony and MS simply could not. The small setbacks are definitely troublesome, but overall this is a must-have for anyone looking for some controller variety.
