PC gets Xbox One controller support

Written by David Stellmack

Just add a micro USB cable & driver

The rumored support for the Xbox One controller on Windows has arrived for both the 32bit and 64bit versions of Windows. Microsoft’s Major Nelson has the drivers posted for download on his site now, but they will be rolled into Windows at a later date.

To use the Xbox One controller with Windows is actually pretty darn simple. Plug in a micro USB cable into the Xbox One controller and then plug the other end of the cable into a USB port. Install the correct driver for 32bit or 64bit Windows, depending on which version you have and that is all there is to it.

As you might have noticed, currently you will have to connect the Xbox One controller with a micro USB cable. There is no word on when or if an adapter will be made available to allow the Xbox One controller to be used wirelessly. The Xbox One controller should be functional in any game that supports the Xbox 360 controller.

Download the drivers from Major Nelson’s site here.
