Sony’s Playstation 4 fans may claim that their Dual Shock is the best but when it comes to PC Gaming, Microsoft’s Xbox One controller is unarguably the best controller to go for.
Besides, the controller and the Windows 10 operating system are done by the same people – Microsoft. It obviously works without a hitch on the platform and is easily detected by almost every game that you could run on your computer. Everything about the new gamepad is awesome except for the fact that it doesn’t support wireless connectivity.
Microsoft promised in the past that they will bring out a wireless adapter for the Xbox One controller and they have ensured that the fulfill it. It is official!
The wireless USB adapter which looks a lot like a Wifi stick will be made available to public on October 20th. You can easily plug in the dongle to any USB 2.0 or 3.0 port and the Xbox One controller will instantly detect its presence. It is much easier to game using a wireless device than having to drag a long micro USB cable with it. The adapter is a must have for anyone who have a gaming PC attached to their HDTV and prefers to play titles from a device.
With this addition, PC gaming becomes complete. Steam has the Big Picture mode to make it resemble a console and with a collection of great platformer games on it, it will be endless hours of fun. The price of the wireless USB adapter for the Xbox One controller is $25 which when paired with the $60 controller, makes it a massive $85.
The dongle works seamlessly with Windows 10 and also with older versions of the operating system but it cannot be used to pair an Xbox 360 controller with it.
