Microsoft has had a PC wireless adapter for the Xbox One controller in the works for months, and now we'll finally be able to buy one. Xbox luminary Major Nelson says Microsoft has started shipping the adapter—officially, the "Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows"—to retailers today. As promised, it'll cost $25 on its own, or $80 when bundled with an Xbox One wireless controller.
As a brief refresher of this dongle's capabilities, Microsoft says it'll provide "the same gaming experience you're used to on Xbox One" when it's plugged into a PC, including support for chat and stereo audio. The company says that each wireless adapter can pair with up to eight controllers and four "chat headsets" or two stereo headsets. Take note, however: this adapter requires Windows 10 to work.
