Microsoft is releasing an adapter that will allow you to use your Xbox Wireless Controller with PC or tablets (with USB 2.0 or USB 3.0). That includes games streamed to Windows 10. It’s only compatible with Windows 10, though, and it’s only for Xbox One Wireless Controllers—your favorite old Xbox 360 controllers won’t work.
The instructions say you can bind the adapter to your controller “to enable the same gaming experience you are used to on Xbox One,” including chat functions and high quality stereo audio. You’ll also get an additional USB extender cable.
The Xbox Wireless Adapter isn’t available on the Xbox Store yet, but it looks like you can preorder it from Amazon for $24.99. The adapter will be officially available October 20 2015. Microsoft warns that a significant firmware update may be required.
