Love Your Xbox One Controller? You’ll Soon Be Able To Use it Wirelessly on PC

As an Xbox console gamer, it’s hard for me to let go of my controller when it comes to PC gaming.  Although a lot of the games I do play make more sense playing with a mouse and keyboard, the comforts of a controller for other games (such as First Person Shooters) bring me ease and helps me pwn the noobs a lot better than I would with a mouse and keyboard.

If you’re like me, you love your Xbox One, there is good news on the horizon.  Microsoft has announced that they will be releasing a wireless adapter that will allow your current Xbox controllers as well as future devices to connect to your PC wirelessly.  It has been reported to be released later this year.

Back when the console was released in November of 2013, the Xbox One controller did not support Windows and although the driver was released last year in June, it did not allow PCs to connect to the WiFi Direct-enabled controller.

Hopefully we can get our hands on one of these babies in the future.  That sounded weird…  There’s still no news on what it will look like or what the price of the device will be, but for those of you that live in the worlds of Xbox and PC, rejoice!

What do you think geeks?  Would you like to use your Xbox One controller for your PC games?  Would you rather stick to the Xbox 360 controller?  Let us know what you think in the comments below!
