There is some good news and some bad news for PC gamers who find the soon-to-be-released Microsoft’s Xbox One Controller impressive. The good news is that the new iteration is going to be PC compatible. However, the wait is going to be much longer for PC gamers.
Xbox One Controller will be launched in November this year, but it won’t be ready for PCs until next year. This delay should not discourage PC gamers, because the new game controller is believed to be a significant improvement over the earlier version, the Xbox 360.
In terms of architecture, Microsoft has gone for a complete overhaul and has based Xbox One Controller on a new wireless protocol. The other significant change is that it comes with a Micro-USB output.
Microsoft, however, has not confirmed what PC gamers really want to know: will Xbox One owners be able to use their current controllers without purchasing extra accessories? If the answer is yes, Xbox One Controller is going to be a huge hit with PC gamers for sure.
The wait for Xbox One Controller while long is hardly dull with Xbox 360 by your side. And in case you encounter some common errors with your current gaming console, you can use the following information to get it up and running.
