While it is no secret that PS3 and PS4 controllers work with little to no hassle on the PC, the Xbox One controller has been slightly more elusive. The wait is finally over and you can now use your Xbox One controller with a PC by downloading the drivers from Major Nelson's website.
While the PS3, PS4 and Xbox 360 controllers will work on any common Windows 7 / Windows 8 device with little to no trouble, the Xbox One was still unsupported, until today. It was only a few moments ago that Major Nelson updated his official site with download links to the PC drivers that will enable players to be able to connect their Xbox Controllers to a Windows 7 / 8 device as shown in the picture above and get ready to start playing their favorite games with their improved controllers. So if you have been wanting to buy another Xbox One Controller then no time is better than the present!!
You can download the Xbox One Controller PC Drivers below:
So if you are anything like the Major, you will take advantage of these drivers and prepare yourself to play the Halo games once more on your Windows 7 / 8 device. Halo 2 is a game that may not be the rockstar of the series but playing the game with the help of the Xbox One controller definitely warrants a replay, If you are up for it too you can choose to indulge yourself in some Halo: Combat Evolved and be ready for Halo announcements at the upcoming E3 conference, Let's hope more announcements come for Microsoft announcing PC games to Steam now that Games for WIndows Live is officially dead and buried and now the framework for the current games is being worked towards bringing the games over to Steamworks with Fable Anniversary being the first to do so.
So what game are you going to play first on the PC with your new Xbox One Controller? Perhaps Dark Souls, Dark Souls 2, GTA 4, One of the Street FIghter Games, Mortal Kombat, Injustice? These are only a few of the many games that can take advantage of the Xbox One Controller.
