Third-Party Licensed Controllers

Many licensed third-party Xbox 360 controllers support Authentication over USB. If you ever have an Xbox 360 controller that doesn't support Auth, simply connect any 360 Auth Controller to Zen's A1 USB port and game with your preferred controller connected to A2 or A3.
