The $25 (£20) adapter, which was first revealed at this year's Game Developers Conference, connects to PC via USB (2.0 or 3.0), and can communicate with up to eight Xbox One controllers simultaneously. All the features of the console pad, such as its rumble tech, have carried over.
This new dongle comes as Microsoft's games division continues its efforts in bridging the gap between Xbox One and PC. As part of that wider initiaitive, Xbox One owners can now stream their games to Windows 10 PCs, as well as facilitate cross-platform play in upcoming games such as Lionhead's upcoming RPG Fable Legends.
Until now, the only official way to use an Xbox One controller on PC was by connecting it with a micro-USB cable.
That will remain the only option for some PC and tablet owners, as the new wireless adapter requires Windows 10. The new operating system is a free upgrade right now for Windows 7 and 8 users, but while adoption has been strong, there are invariably going to be those who aren't up-to-date and thus will be unable to use the adapter.
