Xbox One Wireless Adapter Announced for PCs

 

Microsoft has just announced that they will be launching a Xbox wireless adapter for PC, allowing PC gamers to use the new controller wirelessly with ease.

Up until now PC gamers have only been able to use an Xbox One controller on PC when wired to it and using a driver which Windows does not install automatically. Right now we know that it will work on Windows 10 devices, but it may not be supported by current Microsoft OS' Windows 8.1 or Windows 7.

 

"We are happy to announce that starting this fall, you’ll be able to purchase the Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows to enjoy the freedom and convenience of the wireless controller on Windows 10 PCs, laptops, and tablets,"

The Wireless Adapter will cost $24.99 on it's own and $79.95 in a bundle with an Xbox One Controller, it will be available this fall in the US but pricing and availability has not been announced elsewhere. Microsoft say that the adapter will be "sold in most markets where Xbox accessories are currently available."

It is great to see Microsoft finally release this device for PC, but since the Xbox One and it's Controller have been out for almost 2 years I can't say I'm overly impressed with Microsoft. From reading their announcement it looks like Microsoft are more interested in releasing this so that they can push Windows 10 and it's Xbox One friendly features, rather than as an act improve their relationship with PC gamers.
