Well, most mid-range gaming laptops will outpace an X-Bone, so you'd probably have a much better experience just hooking up the laptop to the TV and using Valve's controller from the couch.

@Jakewearingkhakis, just use steam in-home streaming! An old laptop/desktop works fine, or steam link is not that expensive and works with existing PS3/4 and Xbox controllers.

Also a good solution. There is a bit of latency that occurs from streaming, naturally, but C:S doesn't really rely on reflexes or reaction times or frame-perfect inputs of any sort, so latency is really pretty irrelevant, especially the tiny latency streaming introduces. So a game like this is really ideal for the technology.

I get the desire to expand to additional customer bases, but this genre of game just isn't suited to a console. Gamepads are not well suited to pretty much any creative game. As others have said, either controls end up clunky, or there is a loss of depth in what you can do. Also a large part of this games appeal is the modding community and support, which i assume won't be available on xbox, but best of luck to paradox, hopefully they can pull off a miracle here.
