Kids are loving the Model Y. Want to get controllers, but haven't found any that work yet. Can anyone confirm controllers that work for the 2021 Model Y that has 2 USB-C inputs in the center console?

Have you tried C-A adapter with known working controllers? Wonder if that would work.

Here is a less expensive option than the Xbox One controllers commonly discussed.

8Bitdo Sn30 Pro USB Gamepad (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07R481CVY) - $29
USB-A to USB-C Adaptors (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CVX3516) - $10 for a 2-pack

They are wired, but I prefer having a cable as opposed to charging batteries, especially since the distances aren't that big. I also like the smaller size for storage in the center console.

We got two of these controllers and the hub. They work great and feel pretty close to quality of first party controllers from Microsoft. I have the hub plugged in to one USB C port in the front console, and both controllers plugged into the hub.

the PS4 and XBox both work well when plugged into USB-C. You do need a USB-c to USB A adapter. I did a quick video on YouTube.
