Xbox One wired controller works on Xbox One and Windows PC, available November for $60
Microsoft has added several new accessories to its gaming hardware lineup. One of the most interesting addition is Xbox One controller for PC. It’s essentially the same as the one that ships with Xbox One, except for the fact that you can plug this onto your computer thanks to the 9-inch long cable.
Much like the resemblance and functionality of the Xbox One’s controller, the device even carries the same price tag of $60. You can even use the same controller to connect wirelessly to your Xbox One by detaching the cable from the controller. Or just connect the cable and enjoy a wired experience!
The Xbox One controller for PC is compatible with Windows 7 and Windows 8 operating systems. The other hardware requirements are rather obsolete now, such as 128MB of RAM and 150MB of hard drive space. We’re sure the controller will work fine on your system.
“The Xbox One Controller is the best controller Xbox has ever made. It comes with over 40 innovations to the award-winning Xbox 360 Controller, redesigned thumbsticks, and an all new D-pad provide greater precision. You can also use the same controller to connect wirelessly to your Xbox One or also via the cable too,” Microsoft stated.
The wired controller will be available in November starting at $59.95 (US) online at the Microsoft Store and at various other retailers.Further reading: Microsoft, Windows 8, Xbox One
