Now You Can Use Your Xbox One Controller On Your PC


Microsoft has released new PC drivers for the Xbox One controller, offering PC gamers a better way to play using the Xbox One controller.

The drivers will be also released as part of a Windows update in the near future; however, you can still grab them today:

Fans have wanted PC compatibility, and hey wanted to be able to use the Xbox One controller with the same games and applications they have been playing with using the Xbox 360 controller.

The new PC drivers will enable the Xbox One controller to be used with any game that featured gamepad support for the Xbox 360 controller.

Xbox One is 10% more powerful without Kinect

Microsoft had first offered the Kinect only with its Xbox video game consoles. But it has also been trying to make it a popular accessory for Windows-based PCs.

The company on Thursday also made an updated version of its Kinect motion sensor for Windows developers to pre-order. Kinect for Windows v2 will start shipping to developers in July at $199, the company said. The latest version is more precise and feature-packed than the previous generation.

Regarding the Xbox One, Kinect also added to the price of the video game console, which started at $499, compared to $399 for rival Sony’s new PlayStation 4. So the company last month said it would begin offering a $399 version of the console without Kinect.

Xbox head Phil Spencer tweeted yesterday that June Xbox One developer kits would have access to more juice from the console's graphics processing unit (GPU). But the extra power is not due to a hardware addition, but rather the recent subtraction of the Kinect motion sensor and camera peripheral.

"Yes, the additional resources allow access to up to 10 percent additional GPU performance. We're committed to giving developers new tools and flexibility to make their Xbox One games even better by giving them the option to use the GPU reserve in whatever way is best for them and their games," a Microsoft spokesperson told Eurogamer on Wednesday.

Microsoft plans to release a software development kit later this month that will allow developers to optimize games to utilize more of the system's horsepower freed up from powering the peripheral and applying its functionality to in-game and dashboard features.
