Xbox One wireless controller adapter for PC coming later this year

 

It looks like Microsoft is planning to release a wireless adapter for the Xbox One's controller for the PC,   which will allow PC gamers to use Microsoft's latest controller without being forced to use the controller by plugging in a USB cable. 

The adapter will release alongside Windows 10, which has the ability to play Xbox One games on PC through Xbox In-Home  Streaming.

Microsoft seem to be doing this to appease Xbox Users who will be using the Xbox One to Stream to a PC, rather than to help their PC Gaming audience directly, as primarily Xbox one Owners will have an Xbox One controller and will want to use it on PC.

I think it is rather sad that Microsoft was unable to release this item before we knew about the Xbox One's integrations into the Windows 10 ecosystem, as it mostly just helps to cement the fact that they care more about the Xbox than Windows Gaming.

Rather have a wired tbh. If i'm using my PC to stream and play games i don't need wireless. I'd rather have the lower latency. It's not like i need the cord to be 10ft long. It's not a big deal tbhQuote
