Microsoft released the PC drivers for the Xbox One controllers


Making good on its promise some time ago, Microsoft released the PC drivers for the Xbox One controllers, which will enable users to utilize the devices for their computer, particularly with game playing.

The drivers, available in 32-bit and 64-bit, are part of an incoming Windows update, although a specific timeframe wasn’t given outside of “in the near future.” However, in the meantime, the early access enables the gamers to test out the device to see what it can do, and report back any problems. You’ll have to use the controller with a micro-USB cable instead of wirelessly, however.

Only games that have pre-existing support for controllers, namely the prior Xbox 360 model, will be able to work with the drivers. Still, there are quite a few titles worth checking out, including the Halo games.

You can download them now directly from Major Nelson: Windows 32-bit and Windows 64-bit.
