Microsoft: Xbox One Controller To Become PC Compatible Next Year

Xbox One Controller

Microsoft has revealed that the upcoming new Xbox One Controller will be made compatible with PC next year. Speaking to Penny Arcade Report, Microsoft spokesperson gave the following statement.

“There is also some work that we need to do to make sure that existing PC games that support the Xbox 360 controller, will work with the Xbox One controller. While it seems trivial, it’s actually quite a bit of dedicated work for all that to be seamless for the user. We know people want to use the Xbox One controller on their PC, and we do too – we expect to have the functionality available in 2014.”

Since the new Xbox One controller shares no underlying technology with the current Xbox 360 controller, Microsoft has some work to do make it fully compatible with PC games. Read more from the link below.

    Yeah? Why don’t you make the g25 work with Xbox One also. How can you pretend I’m gonna buy Forza when there are no good wheels at a decent price?

      Why doesn’t Logitech make their steering wheel work with the Xbox One? Why should Microsoft responsible for the hardware of other manufacturers?
      Sony did not ship adapters to use an existing remote with the PS3, instead you had to buy a Sony branded remote or, ironically, buy an adapter from Logitech. And of course, Sony got a pass on that one because you should want to upgrade to the latest and greatest.

        Yeah, I hear you. I did not mean it that literary, I guess. I’m just pissed the g27 didn’t work with the 360. Else I would have bought one. And from what I know there is no latest and greatest in the corresponding price/performance.
        So what I meant was they should implement support for g25/g27 and bring over some ps3 and PC drivers to Xbox. Call it an investment!

    I just hope they bring the Chatpad back as it was far more convenient than the scroll and select method for entering codes, searches, and anything that required text input.
