New Xbox One/PC Wireless Controller Adapter Revealed

Microsoft has unveiled a new iteration of its Xbox Wireless Adapter, which allows you to connect Xbox One controllers to your PC. The new device will hit stores on August 8.

The adapter is capable of wirelessly connecting to eight Xbox One controllers at once, and is 66% smaller than the old design. Be warned, however, that like the old device, this dongle is only compatible with Windows 10 devices (including laptops and tablets) that support USB 2.0 or 3.0, and does not support Xbox 360 controllers.

The new Xbox Wireless Adapter will cost exactly the same as its predecessor–US $25 / AU $30. European pricing has not yet been revealed, but it’s likely the dongle will continue to cost £20 / €23 in the region.

If you don’t fancy shelling out extra money, you can of course connect your Xbox One controller to your PC via a micro-USB cable. This route also supports older versions of Windows, unlike the new wireless adapter.

Just yesterday, Microsoft revealed three new Xbox One controller designs. They’re called Green/Grey, Patrol Tech, and Volcano Shadow, and you can take a look at them all here.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
