Xbox One controllers are compatible with PC despite rumors to the contrary, says Penello

Despite earlier claims that Xbox One controllers would be incompatible with Windows PC, Microsoft's director of product management Albert Penello confirmed the controllers will work with Windows PC games.

The story is too old to be commented.

Wait if you have to create NEW DRIVERS... for your controller to work and be "compatible" to the PC then your controller ISN'T COMPATIBLE... the eff?? then he said "when they are available.." ok soooo when you fix your sh** Microsoft that's WHEN it's compatible don't say "they are" when they aren't at the present moment in life.

SMH, lucky I love my Windows 7 if it weren't for this OS and Visual Studio i'd hope they crash n burn and dissolve.

They are twisting his words. He never said they ARE compatible, he said they will be. He was addressing the conspiracy theory that MS had no plans to release drivers because they would rather folks have to buy another controller for use with their PC.

@Above
please the full article first, then comment!

He never said they were currently compatible..whats all the complaining about?

""When the drivers become available, they will work with the existing controllers. There is no plan to do a new, separate controller that only works on Windows. It will be the same as it is on Xbox 360 - the Xbox One controller you have today will work."

People should pls read and understand stuff before going all bazooka...

But if you take the time to actually read you might not get your comment first. Dilemma.

If MS want some more money, they should put out the drivers, ASAP. I think installing a PS4 controller is supposedly much easier than a PS3 controller.

Sony should have had drivers ready too, and if they do now, I stand corrected here.

I want both controllers for PC. tbh.

Then what rumor? They told us a long time ago that drivers were coming.

All anyone needs to know, its not compatible now but it will be in the future and no new hardware will be needed. existing will work:

"This is 100% wrong," Penello wrote. "When the drivers become available, they will work with the existing controllers. There is no plan to do a new, separate controller that only works on Windows. It will be the same as it is on Xbox 360 - the Xbox One controller you have today will work.

Youre right this guy is so terrible he doesnt even deserve our attention, I will avoid articles with him from now on. And what I meant was that I think he is a terrible PR person

They should just release the wireless dongle/hub to sync our controllers to. The windows 360 wireless unit is a beaut. Sync up to 4 controllers to the hub.

Insiders were wrong!!! What a shock? The horror?

I won't be able to eat for days, my life will come to a complete halt. There will be mass rioting and public stonings.

The apocalypse is here people! The Mayans missed the timeline by a smidge.

Hope it will just connect WiFi direct and not need a special dongle.
