The new Xbox wireless adapter has been revealed and it is much smaller than the previous generation version. To be specific it is 66% smaller than the previous one. It is more like a USB drive now and comes with a protective cover which is transparent. Chances are you are going to lose it as soon as you get it.
The Xbox wireless adapter will allow you to connect a wireless controller to your PC. You can connect up to 8 controllers at a time and 4 headsets which should be more than enough for what you plan on doing. It is interesting to note that although the size is smaller the price is still $24.99.
You can also get one bundled with a plain Black controller for $80. You can check out the official Microsoft website for more information regarding the Xbox wireless adapter. These will be available for purchase starting January 31, 2018. Microsoft also introduced some new controller designs.
The new controllers have all the features that we are used to by now. These include textured or rubberized grip, a decent wireless range and Bluetooth for gaming without an Xbox wireless adapter. If you have the Xbox accessories app then you can go as far as remapping the buttons to suite your play style better.
The new controllers will be available in September but all these peripherals are available for pre-order if you want to be the first to get one. The new controller designs include Green/Grey, Patrol Tech Special Edition, and Volcano Shadow Special Edition. You can even customize and create your own controller.
These controllers also work with Samsung Gear VR, that is something to keep in mind when making your purchase.
