Microsoft announces PC wireless adapter for Xbox One controller


— 3:58 PM on March 4, 2015

If you're tired of connecting your Xbox One controller to your PC with a USB cable, relief is on the way. WinBeta reports that Microsoft announced a PC wireless adapter for the controller at its Xbox GDC event today.

It was nearly a year ago that Microsoft first released Windows drivers for the controller, so a wireless dongle has been a long time coming. The Xbox One has been on the market since November 2013. The lengthy delay isn't unprecedented, however. Microsoft released the Xbox 360 in November 2005, and the Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows didn't arrive in stores until February 2007, according to Wikipedia.

Unfortunately,  Microsoft reportedly didn't announce a release date or price for the adapter during today's presentation. PC users with Xbox One controllers may still have a while to wait.
