Microsoft has announced that this November gamers will be able to use an Xbox One controller on their Windows PC.
The controller will come with a usb cable which can be plugged into any available USB slot and start updating automatically on Windows 7 and Windows 8 machines. The company also noted that the controller is compatible with the Xbox One console as well.
“Arriving in November 2014, the Windows 7 and Windows 8-compatible controller brings the feel of the Xbox One to your PC,” a post from Microsoft reads, in part. “The Xbox One Controller + Cable is the culmination of over 200 prototypes; featuring over 40 awesome innovations, it’s the best PC controller Microsoft has ever produced.”
“The Xbox One Controller + Cable for Windows is simple to use, plugging into any available USB slot and updating automatically. Want to switch it over to your Xbox One for some console gaming? No problem! The controller works on your Xbox One as well, either wirelessly or with the cable, making it more versatile than third-party PC controllers.”
