Xbox One Controller Drivers For PC Are Finally Here

By   /   Jun 5, 2014

Whether it is Xbox One’s price reduction, no DRM policy, free applications for non-Gold Xbox Live members, or more recently, Xbox One controller support for PCs, Microsoft does pay heed to its fans’ demands.

In a recent blogpost at Microsoft’s Larry Hyrb’s official weblog, Major Nelson has affirmed PC support for Xbox One controllers.

Starting from today, anyone can download Windows drivers for Xbox One controller for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. For your convenience, I have listed both download links below:

The blogpost also notes that these drivers will be integrated in next major update for Windows, but anyone who wants early access can download now.

There you have it! No more need to use your Xbox 360 controller to play your PC games as the new-tech is here. Any game supporting Xbox 360 controller should be able to support Xbox One controller just as fine.

All you need to do is install these drivers, connect your Xbox One controller via micro-USB and voila! Major Nelson has also announced that an amazing line-up of games is headed our way via E3 2014.

When it comes to Dualshock 4, a tool dubbed as DS4Tool enables players to hook up their Dualshock 4 to play PC games by tricking the Windows into thinking that it is actually an Xbox 360 controller. However, there is no official release from Sony itself!

Now that support for Xbox One controller is here, hopefully, Sony will take some notes.
