Xbox One Wireless Adapter Announced for PCs

Xbox One Wireless adapter for PCs now supports Windows 7 and 8.1

 

Xbox One Wireless adapter for PCs has now been updated to support Windows 7 and 8.1, no longer locking users to Windows 10 ecosystem.

This comes after many PC gamers have complained that Microsoft have been far to aggressive with their push for gamers to move to Windows 10, especially since right now there is no real reason to upgrade, given that DirectX 12 games are pretty much non-existent right now.

Well it's a sort of useful feature. Just not really useable for Xbox One owners since you can only stream to W10Quote

Some games might not play well with a keyboard when you stream from the xbox? For example playing Madden/FIFA/NHL/etc (sports in general) wouldn't play well with a keyboard at all since you have far less control(almost nonexistent) to move your characters. Alternatively without streaming in the equation it's most useful for some games on PC that either are controller only or support it.Quote

But then why would you stream to your PC in the first place? Why not enjoy the game on a big TV with a surround set on it if you're going to play with a controller anyway?Quote
